FANCY VS HEALTHY
Will the twain meet?–
Millennial is going to witness a seminal revolution in food.And this revolution has two interesting facets-One is the increased emphasis on the fanciness of food and the other is the the increased emphasis on the healthiness of food. Will the twain meet?
The whole concept of food is experiencing an international dynamism inspiring the chefs and restaurants to make their recipes more and more inclusive and yet exclusive. The chemistry has entered the kitchens adding fashion and fusion to native foods. As much thought is going to palate as to plating.There is molecular gastronomy leading our humble jalebi and kulfi and vada pav to be part of a fine dining experience. Chefs are a new breed of scientists using liquid nitrogen to create out of the world palate experience.I could not believe my taste buds when I dug into the high profile caviar jalebis in one of my food sorties.food is no longer for tongue-it serves the eyes, the ears, the touch.
While on the one hand, food is getting fashionable, on the other hand,there is a population of health enthusiasts who are compassionately reviving the whole dictum of health by exhorting that food can be medicine if chosen right.The biggest consciousness that is being created is for gluten free foods. we have quinoa and polenta , super foods like kale , super seeds like nigella and chia. we have stevia leaves as a replacement for sugar.We have whole food plant based diet.we have free range eggs.
But there is a new alternative for people who want to go grain free. And that requires changing the very face of the kitchen where wheat flour seems to dominate the grains.
RELAX-YOU NEED A RIDE IN BANANA BOAT
Bananas have an uncanny knack of creating amusing stories around them. Some are mythological, some spiritual, some are simply comical but whatever, bananas evoke a feeling of fun, fables and farms around them.As a child, I studied sanskrit and I still recall that in sanskrit we used to call banana, kadali phal. kadali was the name of maharishi Durvasa’s wife. Maharishi Durvasa is known for his anger in Indian Mythology .He once got very angry with his wife Kadali as she woke him up from his sleep and cursed her to turn into a banana tree. Kadali sought pardon. Durvasa granted her relief saying that Kadali tree will be worshipped in all Hindu religion as an auspicious fruit and so will be its leaves.
Banana is part of every pooja thali ,prasadam and naivaidyam in Indian religious ceremonies.
