I didn’t even say “khulja sim sim” and whoa! what a treasure trove of the sublime to the simply divine has opened up. You owe it to yourself to browse through the yummy surprises that will leap out of this page. I discovered some of these while working on The Times Food Guide 2013 (the white guide) and have been over the moon since. Here they are…
OOOH LA LA ORGANIC
I just can’t stop shopping here, have picked bags full of genuine guaranteed organic products from Austria and Germany. From orange blossom honey to chocolates, Quinoa to pastas. Jams, oils, nut butters, spelt rusks…I buy them all, here in Kemps corner’s Organic Haus and pay only Rs 5000 (Since there are fantastic offers on for a few more weeks). The eco-seal guarantees that strict organic regulations have been met. The fit and toned legendary cricketer Dilip Doshi and the lovely Swapan Bharma explain that these products are backed by more than 1400 years of organic experience which stand for equal protection of the environment, animals, man and guarantee healthy and sustainable agriculture.We salute this and grab the fabulous products high on taste and affordable in price too.
