Canada’s comfort food
The Poutine Fest at BAR BAR has been extended till May 13. BAR BAR, described as India’s first bar with wholesale pricing is presenting a menu of fries and curries with 10 poutine dishes that can go as a side, or a main with your favourite pint.

Poutines have long been Canada’s comfort food and are said to be "the perfect thing after a night of drinking", say the good folk at BAR BAR. “With this festival, our chefs have given this historical dish a complete makeover. Taking the humble potato and highlighting it in all its glory from wedges to mash and ‘Salli’ to fries, this festival has something for everyone.” Highlights include Chaat Poutine (potato dices, sprouts, chilli cheese sauce, green chillies and tamarind sauce),Oink Oink Poutine (shoe strings fries, bacon bits, ham, pork sausages and belly),Korean Kimchi Poutine (potato wedges, gochujang chilli cheese sauce and fried sesame noodles) and Mac N Cheese Poutine (potato smiles, aged cheddar cheese, parsley and jalapenos)

While the word Poutine in Canadian slang actually means ‘Mess’, the BAR BAR people say these are insta-worthy.

Indoor picnics
Just when an outdoor summer picnic in Mumbai seemed like an over-ambitious idea, Gateway Taproom has lined up their kegs, kitchen army and a stack of board games with an upbeat picnic feel and décor. The month-long picnic at their BKC outlet is accompanied by three craft beers and freshly baked flatbreads with toppings.
Take a sip of the refreshing Valencia Orange Wheat with citrusy notes or opt for the copper-hued aromatic and aptly named Picnic Ale. Or try ‘Time Please’ and check out their naturally soured ale made with locally grown wheat and barley malt. There are eight summer flatbreads, including ‘The Mangonificent Flatbread’ with mango, arugula pesto and feta, ‘Appley Ever After’ with apple, goat cheese, jaggery and walnut candy and others with toppings selected by foodies.

Egg-free Parfait
Founded by Sharmeen Indorewala, The Parfait Co. is India’s (and the world’s) first packaged French Parfait brand. French Parfait is a cold dessert-like ice-cream but is richer in texture and flavour. Traditionally, it is made with four ingredients – egg, sugar, cream, and a flavour (chocolate, fruit), making it off-limits for strict vegetarians and egg-sensitive customers. The Parfait Co now launches egg-free parfaits using a whey protein from Germany as a replacement for the eggs. The parfaits are currently available in four flavours – Belgian Chocolate, Passion Fruit, Salted Caramel and Hazelnut Crème. They are priced at Rs 99 (inclusive of taxes) for 100-ml single serve tubs. The products have no added stabilisers, preservatives, additives or colorants and are gluten free, the company says.
