We’ve started a new series of events on Festival Cooking. We’re a family that loves festivities – no we dont have grandiose celebrations neither do we indulge in sweets like we’ve never tasted sugar before.
But festivals give us the opportunity to celebrate the lovely little things in our culture, bond with neighbours and friends, wake up to white rice flour patterns on baked red earth (or even kolam on mosaic or tar road) , drown in the smell of camphor, be mesmerised by the golden glow of sesame oil lit lamps, sink our teeth into delicious goodies and end meals with a classic natural digestive or some such remedy for all the feasting :D
Festivals are born out of human beings’ need to congregate and escape from the routine of life for a while. Most importantly without doubt one is left with a clean fresh home at the end of festivals because the preparations call for cleaning.
We’re hosting the first of the series here – starting with Srijayanthi that is on September 4th. Thanks to the logical arguments of our fellow food bloggers – we’ve postponed the deadline to submit entries to September 10th.
