Spiced Panna Cotta with Raspberry Pomegranate Jelly

I’ve worked hard to champion the everyday. To savour and appreciate the little things, like good conversation. Some of my best conversations have included food. But, bringing family and friends —old and new—together over a meal, doesn’t happen as often as it should. With life so chaotic and a constant need to move faster, it’s easy to forget to pause.

Arrival of Autumn’s Jewels – Pomegranate & Asian Pear Salad with Chaat Masala Dressing

Despite the usual hustle bustle – surrounding raising four children, my parents took offbeat pauses to appreciate life with food. It was their way of displaying love. Because of this, every autumn, my siblings and I anticipated the arrival of pomegranates.

Pomegranates were not in vogue. They were unfamiliar, evoking another world, ancient and far away, especially in the small town where we lived. Their exotic appeal made them expensive. That didn’t stop my parents from buying one or two. Generously, they would decline eating any, stating they had many growing up in India and that it was our turn. So sweet.
