Most memorable gastronomic experience would have to be this late Saturday lunch at The Taj West End (Bangalore), on the garden concluding with a set of musician’s performing at the table.
I met my food wife in Tokyo; discovering tonkotsu in ippudu roppongi, shirako in nishiazabu, yakitori in higashishinjuku, sui-gyoza in omotesando and sapporo with otsumami in any local izakaya. one day i’ll return to her…
Stumbling across a farmhouse kitchen in Croatia whilst driving through the countryside. There was no menu, the owner recited what he had caught in his field/forest that day and how he was going to cook it. It was also in the height of truffle season so it was impossible to avoid this ingredient;-) Was an absolute lucky gem to find and every morsel was seasonal, delicious and memorable.
Celebrating my 30th with a Banoffee Pie, made by my husband who has never baked anything in his life (he never had to, i’m a pastry chef). It wasn’t the best pie I have ever tasted but certainly the sweetest and most memorable.
I got the chance to ride in an 18 wheeler with a truck driver and it was in the rain and this lady was driving slow in the rain so the truck driver got into the fast lane and all of a suden the lady came over in front of him (some feet) and it literally scared the crap out of both of us because he could not slow the truck down like you slow down a car. It takes so much more time. It was horrifying
Most memorable… I would say eating homemade Maine blueberry pie made by wild blueberries that I helped pick!

From engineering graduate to being a pastry chef – one of the biggest decision I have made so far in my life, and I did not regret it one bit.

My most memorable gastronomic experience was having the most delicious artichokes I have ever had in my life at Hotel Lanzillotta prepared by the owner’s nonna. Nothing beats having the chance to taste what the italian nonnas’ cook!
Best food experience…the simple things are best, I think a little English style teahouse that was stumbled upon in a small midwestern town!
I turned from a staunch vegetarian into a crazy carnivore over 3 days spent in Tasmania, Australia. From delicious venison to smoked salmon and truffles, I have never eaten so well! And not the slightest bit guilty, kindof…
Must be the dinner in the hills south of Rome. The restaurant was so outraged by my manners – eating the salad WITH the main meal as opposed to eating it on its own – that he asked everyone to shut up and listen. Then, he reprimanded me publicly. I’ll never forget the lesson, nor the meal.
My first and only cookery course at Blue Elephant in Bangkok. Went to the local markets in the morning which was very interesting, then cooked various Thai dishes. Didn’t know that I could cook something which tasted so good! Lol
Roganic because it was my first time sampling a 10 course menu!
It would be the meals i had in Bali as they were all home grown and made the old fashioned way. Babi Gulings which were grilled for hours in woodfire and an organic menu in front of vegetables patches in Sari.The orgasmic food experience was also a feast for the eyes and senses.
The most unique experience I had in Italy eating homemade pizza prepared by an old Italian lady. It was delicious!
Most unique gastronomic experiences was when me and my husband went to Garmisch Germany and try stuff from rabbit to sushi and all kind of delicious stuff

Had the chance to try some of the great cocktails in Finland when I visited the Arctic Icebar in Helsinki during the summer….having alcohol in the ‘winter time’ is just awesome and invaluable….

my most unique grastronomic experience would probably be a 5 course dinner we had while no a dinner train in 2008, it was fun.
Traveling in Madrid we followed directions posted on a wall to a small cafe hidden behind a locked door. A sign telling guest to knock to enter. Amazing discovery, great food and wine.
Sitting down at a restaurant in Lisbon and letting the waiter order for us.
Food tour in testacio market, Rome.
at Chiquitos in London!
Raw Oysters slithering down my throat @ Island Creek Oyster Bar Boston MA
Okonomiyaki in a small little alley in Tokyo where no one spoke a word of English – had to pantomime our order and hope for the best!
Off-the-menu noodle dish with pork, spice, and XO sauce in a sizzling metal bowl at an unassuming restaurant in Chinatown, New York City.

Extra spicy tom yam from Absolute cooked by Mr.Thai
Enjoying fresh home-made spinach + ricotta and pumpkin filled ravioli with an Italian family at an Bosco Del Fracasso, Scandiano, Reggio Emilia , Italy
2am in Tokyo and stumbled upon what seem to be a traditional ramen shop which Sonia and
I ordered (via a vending machine) two bowls of ramen (without any expectations) and ended being two bowls of ramen that changed our lives forever – Two bowls of ramen sent down from the sky, how can it be so perfect I ask why, two chefs added Japanese affection, ramen made to absolute perfection.
Costa Azul, Old Kent Road
never paid so little for a chopping board so full of meat
plus they play live music next to you so loud you can’t even hear the person next to you
plus its so dodgy you never know if you’re gonna leave alive
The most memorable food experience recently is when I made duck and watermelon salad, after trying it in Gilgamesh (Camden Town). It turned out to be a true Mother-In-Law Pleaser!
