    Food magazines and Books

    Well I'll thank to everyone who stopped by my post and helped me out with your suggestions. I am definitely putting those recommendations and questions that some of you asked into consideration and starting to work on it. And yes, the main purpose of asking this question was because am planning to study a Post Graduate course in Gastronomy. I intend to learn about it, at least for now, from some of the books, links and magazines that you all shared. I know it would have been easy for me too Google it all, but I think getting some personal ideas and talking to new people from the same community would help me in a better way. Also, I have some Universities in mind which provides that particular course, but am always open for suggestions. Looking forward to hear from you all. Have a great day !

    What is it to own a restaurant ?

    I was just wondering that how does it feel to own a restaurant. I know it's more of a practical thing rather than just thinking about it. As I have worked in some of the standalone's and hotel's till now, what I feel is you have to get started at some point. Obviously as it's a business category there are many risks, uncertainties, courage, investment issues and a lot more. But then that's the beauty of it I feel. You live everyday with some kind of responsibility and goal. Every industry and industrialist faced some up's and down's at the beginning but that's what it is. That's temporary. But now it's up to you that how you define "Temporary". Also it's all about you and your dream, if it's firm and strong enough, only you can stop yourself. Other technical aspects like staff, management, food, capital etc. etc. are the part of it, but as a whole what I think is that if you are quite determined and positive about your decisions and yourself, you could own anything. That's what I think, but I would love to know about your opinions as well, as this is an amazing platform for us all to share and add our ideas and thoughts to others ideas and thoughts. Also adding a picture of a book am reading currently. Looking forward. Cheers !!

    About Me

    Cookwhoplaysdrums, that's what I call myself. Am a student specialized in food production from IHM, Mumbai. Recently completed my culinary training from JW MARRIOTT JUHU, MUMBAI. Have been into cooking and music since a while now and willing to take my knowledge and experience of the same through words. Came across many experiences which made me realize that I can portray the world of food, music and travel more decently with my writing. Some years back, I traveled to Europe with all my artists for a music fest. That experience gave me a different dimension to start thinking about writing. Came across many personalities from different countries which were also the part of the fest. Got to know a lot about different cuisines, music genres and lifestyles. Few months back, in my college, I found that I could express my experience and the journey to make a dish quite well with writing as we had a Buffet Assignment to be made on Odisha Cuisine from India. Faculties gave us a set menu to prepare for the college as a part of the assignment. As, I being the Chef In Charge for the buffet, had to share a report at the end. That was a calling for me. Since then I have been into writing and living a life with different perspective.
