Happy to announce Gayatri’s event – WTML (Walk through Memory Lane) all this July here at Sizzling Tastebuds. I guess each one of us has those special memories to go with food, be it an older aunt or mom or even grandmoms dishing out that special dish (or even meal). What better way to remember those lovely moments by posting and linking all those dishes right here at this event.
On a personal note, frankly hosting this event now couldn’t have happened at a more appropriate moment for me. I am still filled with memories of my grandmom who passed away last fortnight – a lady whose food evokes the very foodie in me. The gutsiest lady I have ever seen of her age, a lady who hardly finished secondary school, but was so knowledgeable and conscious about things around her. It was a standing joke in the family to see her watching “The Wonder Years” and “Doogie Howser M.D” on television when cable first entered India a couple of decades ago. Mentally alert and active till her end, she ensured she knew about the presidential incumbents in Indian politics.
Such was her grasp over traditional food she could reel off age old recipes in a jiffy with proportions that would never fail you. I do wish I could have recorded some of those recipes somewhere, but I am sure I could never beat that taste and flavour, not to forget the love with which she served anyone at her door – even at the stroke of midnight, when she had unannounced visitors from outside the city, she ensured a 4 – 5 course meal all cooked to perfection.
With that short but overdue eulogy to my lovely grandmom, lets get on to the event now.
