  1. I heard they are very expensive. How much do you think four or five will cost? Or do I have to do the mortgage thing
  2. Locally? Online? suggestions on how to tell if they are "good"? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
  3. The Economic Times features Monica's Choice
  4. Anchita - belated welcome to the forums. I appreciate your posts and look forward to hearing more from you.
  5. Now if I only knew someone at Penguin who would kindly send me a review copy.
  6. Hi all, sorry to have dissappeared for a while. I was in India on assignment and then took an extended vacation. It was good to be there and it feels good to be back. It has been hard for me to start a thread on how wonderful my trip was since the news of the terrible disaster on that side of the world. I hope you will forgive me if I choose not to post too much right now and begin to do so in a few days. Although I understand life goes on, it seems ridiculous for me to gloat about a great vacation at this point. I do want to say that I have pictures and stories that i am sure you all will enjoy. I met with India's leading chefs, restauranters, food editors, and many more wonderful people and their stories are amazing Thanks to all those who have kept the forum going, I hope we can drum up more energy here soon. Best wishes Monica
  7. Helenas- quite a bit has been written about how to use these.. I think a quick search on the threads will help you out. Do come back and ask more questions if the search is not as helpful as I think it will be.
  8. I keep thinking of the right words to say and so have been waiting to post. I am not sure there are any right words anymore. This is more than terrifying. I have never seen such devastation in my life. I hope that aid gets there in time so as to stop the spread of any illness. It is so very terrible
  9. Thanks! I was out and then ill and getting better now. I may be out due to some impending surgery but hope to post more asap.
  10. I cannot even begin to comprehend the magnitude of the devastation. I wish we could help somehow...
