:Vanshree: Synthesis of Old and The New

Manish Patel, known for his vast experience in F & B industry, part of Rajvadu family now ventures out into a completely fresh and new Avtaar where nature is kept alive and so are the traditions which are deep-rooted food as well, the food which runs in our veins. The new Avtaar retains the old values in every aspect, yet branches out into an open sky full of various cuisines. Charvi along with her team has put in all her hard work experience and effort to curate the menu where they have used maximum ingredients that are rich in nutrition, yet very innovative and unique.

Vanshree reflects an amalgamation of food and nature, as their tag line goes, ‘Prakruti nu saundarya, swad nu madhurya”. The food connoisseurs when step into this newly renovated place will get nostalgic about old Amdavad food days when this location used to be one of the most preferred gastronomic destination.

“Beyond just food, we have put in efforts to a very minuscule level in order to impart the essence traditions. The utensils used are that of brass and bottles are made of copper. We ensure that water is stored overnight after the cleaning bit is done.  These were the practices of older times which we are trying to keep alive. Though we serve a surfeit selection of cuisines, we made a conscious decision to stick to the traditional tableware”, says the young enthusiast Charvi Patel.
Charvi is a young entrepreneur, having a strong zeal and commitment level, after doing Hotel Management; she started her career with a five-star hotel so she gathers industry expertise and the finesse required in the industry. Now she is part of a family venture along with her father, husband and brother who are partners. Charvi is also is a mother to a year and a half old son with whom she spends the first half of the day and the rest goes into Vanshree where late nights are quite normal as a routine.  
I tried my hands on “Coras” to begin with inspired by the English version or maybe a coconut juice or rus, this coconut water-based drink having a hint of rose and lemon, loaded with chia seeds is very healthy which rules over the synthetic artificially flavoured mocktails. Cuboholic is another highly recommended fresh fruit based innovation.
Dahi Waffle Chaat, have you ever tried a waffle in this healthy format where the fried vadas are smartly replaced. Aloo candy chat is another creative version where the age-old favourite Aloo tikki is crafted in a candy format, topped with cheese.. can a Tikki get even better!!!
Aloo Candy Chaat
Tandoori trails are a must try! The Kebab studio platter carries all the goodies from the hot oven.. khichu fried and rolled into a kebab, mushrooms stuffed with cheese,  dahi kebab, Brocolli mutter lollipop is a craftsmanship where the greens are served in the interesting shape of a lollipop, good indulgence for the health freaks.
Brocolli Mutter Lollypop

Have you guys ever had a vegetarian Tunde Miya ke kebab, here Vanshree has it all, made from yam and ratalu, served on a mini warqui paratha.. your taste buds will just get flattered!!

Tunde Miya - veg avtaar

You will go nuts on the Special nuts and veggie pizza, plated with silver!!

So from a Masala Khichdi to a Once upon a Time loved Veg Stroganoff with herb rice..

Once upon a time, the rice becomes a stroganoff 
From a Kachori Kulcha to make your own wood fire pizza..

And from the Gulkand shots to a Mishthan Thaal, where all the goodies from sweets come in a platter!!

So be it, friends or family, Vanshree is a place where you feast and interact amidst nature. The circular glass house tent has water coolers smartly fitted, so that you don’t miss out on the breeze amidst the greens.

To encapsulate in a line, Vanshree carries the true essence of all!!

We are what we eat!! (not just think...)

Ahmedabad, 16th December 2018: Food has been known not only to impart nutrition, but also develops our mind, body and certain spiritual qualities. The essence of food which has been traditionally developed over years is somewhere getting lost between fad diets, western influence, new age ingredients, cafe culture etc.
Indian tradition and culture has developed over food. Food is one ingredient which is also present in religion, ayurveda, medicine, and social connect too... Food is part of our entire eco-system, it is nature, hence we connect with it the most.
Sattvik is one such initiative to create awareness about the lost traditional cooking methods, regional and seasonal food. Apart from this Sattvik brought in by Srishti Innovations is also a platform where home- makers, villagers and commercial outlets showcase their food-related products, services and serve delicacies too.
Sattvik 2018 will be held at AES grounds, Bodakdev from 22nd December 2018 to 25th December 2018, from 11am ti…

Reservoirs of Heritage..

13th September 2018: India as we all know; not only has a diverse culture but so stands for its architecture and heritage. In my recent trip to South India, wherein my plan was to touch upon some key points in the Indian Peninsula, beginning from Hyderabad, thereon heading to Nanded , back and then reach Kochi in Kerala, drive to Munnar to view the spectacle of an era i.e Neelkaranji flower bloom; reach Kodaikanal in Tamil Nadu, take off for the southernmost tip of India – Arichal Munai via Rameshwaram and come back to Ahmedabad.
As we all know, due to the man-made catastrophe in Kerala, I was in constant hope that rain will certainly stop and things in few days will get back to normal (first week of August), but things worsened as water from reservoirs was released, adding on to the upheaval of nature’s fury which made me cancel my bookings from Hyderabad to Kochi... which was quite disappointing; but the news reports of “Neelkaranji” flowers blooming in Kodaikanal urged me to resch…

The women who feed the Amdavad foodies..

8th March!!! International Women’s day is one of the days to realise and spread the power and ability of a woman who still is fighting for her rights and position in society. Gender Parity, Female Foeticide, Right to Education, Women Safety and protection are still some of the burning social issues. Those who emerge and excel in various fields are either very strongly supported by their parents or post-adolescence they have their own ‘nerves of steel’ and will power, in creating their own niche in the fiercely competitive world where at times her voice is not either paid heed to, or she disappears in the womb itself, dumped after birth or various other complex factors in the male-dominated patriarchal society.
On the other hand, however, females or womanhood has been celebrated during Navratras in India, that too twice a year, the biggest question lies... does this kind of respect for gender, where she is synonymous with SHAKTI, trickle down in Reality. Do we Practice what we Preach?
