What: Wazwan food boxes from Kashmir Box, visit www.kashmirbox.com, delivery all over India, Rs 650 for 1 kg Rogan Josh, free shipping on orders above Rs 500.
Why: Too busy for Paradise at the moment? Allow the Kashmir Box to send everything short of a shikara to your doorstep. There’s saffron and cherries, cricket bats and honey wax candles and Rogan Josh on this recently-launched e-store that works to promote Kashmiri artisans. But what you should really be scoping out are the Wazwan boxes – canned food brands selling specialty dishes like yakhni, kofta and more. They’ve been tried and tasted by a homesick Kashmiri friend in Mumbai – he recommends you get the rista, goshtaba and methi maaz - whose mum has been sending him these cans for a while now. Have more questions? Ask Siri(nagar)!
When: You want to get Sweet Valley High.
Why: You’ll have to pull many strings – probably as many as the ones on her celtic harp – to get Nush Lewis to play at your party. Lucky for you, we met the harpist and singer/songwriter in a cab outside Blue Frog, where she played last week with rocker Uday Benegal, and convinced her that it’s a good idea. She does however, come with a set of rules: “I won’t play at weddings and I refuse to be an ornament at your soiree.” But if there is an audience among your party guests, play she will, her pretty acoustic music. Harpe-diem!
When: You want to serve some angel hair with your pasta.
What: Gooey chocolate pudding in a tumbler, to order call Candida on 9930630370 (at least a day in advance), pick up from Tardeo, Rs 280 for 180 gms.
Why: Glass tumblers, almost licked clean, left with Oreo crumbs and bits of berries. Hovering over are happy faces smeared with chocolate. Smile, you’re on Candida’s camera! You can’t help but grin when you dig into digital and branding expert Candida D’Silva gooey chocolate pudding, set in glasses. It’s cold and eggless with dense layers of chocolate, a cookie base and a carnival-like three-berry frosting.
When: You want to visit Trio de Janeiro!
What: Playing cards designed by 54 artists for 54 Project Deck, available online here, Rs 950 for a pack.
Why: Skulls on the three of spades, Ravana-like King of Hearts, retro astronauts floating around the five of spades and a natty argyle pirate on the seven of diamonds—have these uber-cool cards and hold ‘em! On the designer list we spotted Ishan Khosla Design, Harsha Vardhan, Siddhi Yadav and Surgery Minor Kunst. Lucky draw!
When: You want the Queen of Arts.
Why: Advance booking: It was only a matter of time before Pali Village Café owner Suren Joshi, with his big biceps and monster truck, started a venture more tilted towards testosterone. Enter iThinkFitness, his and his partner Mishali's upcoming gym and fitness centre where membership is now open. Spread across 12,000 square feet, the gym’s buddies will include fancy machines, valet parking, aroma showers, a health food café and an adjoining open space where members can play basketball, football or volleyball.
When: Gym-y Boy slated to open at the end of this month.
