Every once in a while we have a talk that pulls the crowd. Once every couple of months or so we here at IDG decide to host a different kind of session. This time around the theme was sure to be a hit. Food. Italian Food.
Chef Ritu Dalmia of Diva restaurant in Delhi turned our cafe into her kitchen. She spoke about her travels in Italy that transformed her from a rookie to someone with whom Italian food in India really arrived. Two students were her sous chefs for the day who cooked for us Bruschetta, Quattro Formaggi Pasta (Four-cheese pasta), Tomato-base pasta and chocolate fudge. Along with the cheeses came discussions about Nigella Dawson, food and pornography and a little too much wine. The conversation lingered while devouring little pieces of Gorgonzola and Mozzarella. With our intellectual and culinary appetites full, all we really wanted to do was Kiss the Cook!
