A Vanilla Afternoon

We watched the NDTV 24X7 Show, Aneesha Baig's "Will Travel For Food" with great interest, specially since it featured our friend and food blogger Kalyan Karmakar and his favorite Bandra hangouts.It also covered another food blogger Shaheen Peerbhai who is famous the world over as the Purple Foodie.Shaheen spoke of her favorite finds for baking ingredients including a small place called Evellene International at Mahim,Mumbai.As it was close to where both Sue and I live,we decided to explore the place,after an afternoon by the sea with Finely Chopped, listening to his tales of Spanish travel.He went off to Fort to organize his next food walk there which he plans to hold on 16th March.

Sue had forgotten the slip of paper with the vanilla supplier's address at home so I googled and found it.We called him up and he gave us directions.When we reached,he told us he would give us a little presentation on vanilla,which made both Sue and me happy as we both love food stories.…
