Pork Belly in Master Stock

Master stocks are essential for the Chinese braised dishes. The addition of soy sauce gives it a rich red colour and warmth to any meat or poultry, while the Chinese wine, rock sugar and spices give it a rich and strong flavour. The master stock can be used several times as with every use it grows better and denser.

Truly a ‘Global Desi”

  A world of colourful patterns and textiles, a perfect summer dress, breezy scarfs and comfy pants. All of these things capture the true essence of one of my favourite India fashion brands ‘Global Desi‘ This colourful and young chirpy linesshopshop is the brain child of the ever so talented Anita Dongre. Reeling in from the success from her former label ‘AND‘. Global desi is effervescent and breathing in a more contemporary fresh of air into India fashion. Some of my favourites are the shift dresses with cute camel and tuk tuk prints. Images courtesy: Global Desi

Being “Fashion-able”

Love our industry…I love what we do…Our unapolegetically changing moods…. I love how Anti-fashion is no one is exempted from the chain no matter how unfashionable they may claim to be. I love that because of the likes of us, Cerulean, Cobalt and Prussian suffer from no identity crisis. I love how the word season will always mean something slightly different for us. I love that a Galliano and a Calvin Klein can co-exist so…umm..fashionably?? …and while we’re talking Galliano, I’m on his side, the poor genius!!! I love that we know and create now, for another person, on another side of the planet, what he does not know he will want in 2 years. I love what we stand for and that we needn’t. I love our depth and our shallowness and that we can flit from one to the other as we please…. our kisses in the air and our hunger to leave the world a little more chic than we found it. Ah well!!!… Whats not to love??? Here’s to us!!!! …
