On This Mother’s Day, Let Your Mommy Enjoy A Day Out In Jaipur

11 05 2018

Moms are the most beautiful and caring beings ever created by God. They take care of us when we are sick, cheer us up when we are sad, and also show us the right path when everything in life is going in the wrong direction.

Despite the ample love showered by our mothers, we sometimes get short of showing affection towards our mothers. Show your love & care to your mother by taking her out on a weekend trip to the beautiful Pink City on Mother’s Day. 

  1. Visit the Forts & Monument

Surrounded by the world-famous forts & monuments, a visit to Jaipur with your mother opens a gateway to the cultural history of rich Rajputana. Spend your mornings by enjoying the elephant ride at the Amer Fort or admire the Jaipur skyline at Nahargarh Fort or else take numerous selfies at City Place with your Mumma dearest. We bet this trip to Jaipur with your mother will be the most cherished memory of your lifetime.

    2. Dwell into Shopping Spree

The streets of Bapu Bazar and Johari Bazar are filled with colourful handicrafts,  stoles and jewellery pieces that are enough to tempt the shopaholic in your mom. Also, make sure to gift to your mother a Bandhej or Lehariya saree as a souvenir to your Jaipur trip with her.

Before we start talking about the event, let’s start from the fact that why is it called ‘Beerup’. The name comes from ‘Tweetup’ which is an event where people who tweet come together to meet in person. A tweetup is a great opportunity to really connect with the people in your network and share just a little more than 140 characters at a time, and when this connection involves chilled beer, lots of fun and Forresta, then #KFBeerUp 2014 is what takes place !!

Talking of ‘experiential marketing’, this event set a great example. Being one of the best events in Jaipur, this event saw a new and fresh face of social and digital media marketing where an event infused brand enthusiasm among the twitter users and gave a kingly feel to the beer lovers.

Kingfisher Beer, a very popular brand known nationwide organized this event for the twitter community. A tweetup for beer lovers that limited to “Twitter Users” only! Kingfisher promises #KFBeerup in a city one month in advance and if you have registered you can drink as much Kingfisher Premium Beer and have as many delectable floating snacks as you want, which might even leave you floating at the end of the night 😉

In the backdrop of the adventurous forest type ambiance and lush green environs, the event kicked off with a lot of enthusiastic faces, foot-tapping music and head-rolling beer games 😀

The event was captured live and live tweets were done from the venue itself. The word started spreading and twitter world buzzed with hash tag “#Kfbeerup” as people tagged their friends on twitter to inform them about the #Kfbeerup.

The rocking event began with #KFBeerSipper where turn by turn, men and ladies participated and all they had to do was sip up the beer as fast as possible !!

By now everyone was almost buzzing in the trance of fun and beer, and the magic was multiplied by 100 times with the music being played by DJ Jasmeet.

We moved on to the next game ; #KFBeerSucker !! It was time to get a little naughty 😉 There was a team of boy and girl each and the girls had to help the boys suck up all the beer from the milk bottles, sounds a little funny right? But then what else were there for 😉 And just to inform you guys, Jaipur Jugheads broke all the records by finishing the race in 1.29 seconds and became the best sucker in India 😀

Then came #KFBeerPong where in the drunken state, two teams of boys had to chug and throw balls into the opponents’ beer glasses and whoever dropped more balls in the given time would win !! #JaipurJugheads surely did very well even though they did very well even though they did not break the record.

Delight in Do Pyaza

17 05 2013

Chicken do pyaza , Mutton do pyaza, bhindi do pyaza, egg do pyaza, Paneer do pyaza… Are all these dishes sounding very familiar? Have you noticed what’s that one thing common in all these piquant dishes? Yes, you are absolutely right – it is the word ‘Do Pyaza’. But do you know what does this mean and from where did it come into existence or why it is used post some of the dishes? We got to tell you the logic behind it.

Do pyaza is a Persian word meaning (having) two onions. The term is generally used for South Asian curry dishes. Such dishes are prepared with large quantities of onions, added twice in a single preparation. One at the time of preparing curry paste and other for garnishing.

paneer do pyaza

Do Pyaza has a very interesting history of its origin. According to a legend, once the courtier of Mughal emperor Akbar Mullah Do Piaza accidently added a large quantity of onions to a dish. The dish further evolved in Hyderabad, India and became a necessity of Hyderabadi cuisines. Since too much of onions make dish very sweet so, they are accompanied by adding something sour to the dish. Generally, raw mangoes, tomatoes, gooseberries are added but people often use lemon juice – the best and an all time available souring agent. Simplest of recipes of Do Pyaza are made up onions, garlic, ginger and whole hot ‘Indian’ spices such as black cardamom, cloves and peppercorns, salt and chili powder.

Paneer do pyaza  is a unique paneer recipe and the recipe calls for more onions and less tomatoes unlike the usual tomato based paneer recipes.

Try the delicious and yummy Paneer Do Pyaza at Forresta Kitchen and Bar and taste the magic of onions in this summer !!





Cheese and Wine-Let’s dine Honey!

2 05 2013

Now that’s a bit cheesy affair as the way we love cheese is applauding. The craziness goes in leaps and bounds as we have several days dedicated to showcase our love for cheese.

To name some we have National Cheese Day(June 4), National Cheese Lovers’ Day(January 20), National Cheese Doodle Day (March 5), National Cheese Ball Day (April 17), National Cheese Pizza Day (September 5). Be that as it may, there’s a lot of cheese in the world – hundreds of different kinds, made from the milk of everything, from buffaloes to yaks and every last bit of it, to my mind, tastes even better with wine!! Well, except for Casu Marzu Sardinian cheese with live cheese-fly larvae in it.

So that goes for talking about the lovely wine as well and perhaps the fairer sex would be more amused to acknowledge the fact that woman, in general, tend to absorb alcohol quicker than men due to their lower  body water content and difference in levels of stomach enzyme. And so their moderate levels of consumption tend to be lower than a male of equal age and weight.

But come what may! Wine and cheese have gone hand in hand for centuries; however, with today’s ever-increasing options for both wines and cheese the pairing decisions can be staggering.So here are few tips to keep in mind:

Pairing wines and cheeses from the same region is a good, “safe” place to start wine and cheese combinations. For example, a good Italian Chianti and potent Parmesan will provide a fascinating mix. Also, remember that the harder types of cheese (i.e. Cheddar or Parmesan) can handle more tannic wines (used to describe Red Wine). While creamy cheeses, such as Brie,typically pair better with wines that have more acidity, like a Chardonnay and remember to give salty cheeses a sweet wine partner (i.e. Blue Cheese and Port)!!

Back in the old days, red wine and cheese were thought to belong together as surely as pomp and circumstance. It was customary to serve the cheese course after the meal; to be consumed with the red that remained in the bottle after the roast had finished. The custom of drinking red wine with cheese grew from the natural order of long, involved feasts.

As a matter of fact, most of the creamy and delicate cheese works better with white wine. For example, the slightly grassy character of Sauvignon Blanc makes a perfect match for goat’s cheese and in fact the fresh acidity of most white wine cuts through cheese and this aids whites to be a better partner.

wine7

Also, sweet white wines, such as Sauternes, make terrific partners for cheese especially salty, blue cheeses.

Words of warning: Avoid oaky whites as they can clash with many cheeses! In conclusion, you can find great partners of red and white wine and cheese, but they are quite specific and it is not true that ‘all reds and whites go with all cheeses’ at all!

But you can always say cheese, with your dear wine 🙂
