It's all in the presentation!




A friend of mine told me yesterday that a lot of times, it doesnt matter what you cook for the children, but presenting it well, will make all the difference. I couldnt agree more.I made the humble potato wedges yesterday.(baked,not deep fried) Also, some stir fried vegetables to go with it.To decorate,I carved a tomato, into a flower shape (cut firm tomato into two, scooped out the insides, and made triangular nicks on the outer edge with a sharp knife), filled it with bits of cheese, and added some chopped coriander leaves around it, to make it look striking.

My kids LOVED it!
They asked
"Mama, who is coming for dinner tonight?"

I said

"Both of you are."

To say they were delighted, would be putting it mildly. They gobbled up every last piece of the vegetables.I couldnt ask for more! (Can you picture a five year old, eating all the vegetables with great relish,without being threatened with dire consequences if veggies aren't finished?)

  2. This is a wonderful idea. I get so caught up with things that need to be done that sometimes I forget the little things that make such a difference.

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017
