Kolkata beckons

Guys, I am going to be away over the coming weekend. Can never resist a Kolkata visit, despite the travel time and the ridiculous flight schedules. I love Kolkata, and I'd like to believe Kolkata loves me! I have relatives there from my husband's side of the family (Hello Arjun!), and I have wonderful friends ( Hello Jayabrato!). Good company and great food form the basis of this on going love affair. As good a reason as any! I mean , think about it - good food cannot be enjoyed in isolation. And good frinds cannot be met over lousy food. They can.... but what's the point? Years ago, My husband and I spent an enchanting evening at Jayabrato's home discussing the BEAUTY of Topshe maach for forty-five minutes. We got to the taste later, after it was consumed. Post-dinner conversation revolved around, what else? Maach! What we should eat the next day, and the next. I have yet to master the subtle art of relishing betki\hilsa with refined delicacy . This involves an intricate skill using a dextrous tongue to discreetly remove the fine bones of the fish INSIDE the mouth, without choking or spitting. I tried it once and nearly died gagging on the damn things. I guess I had to concede I was no Sharmila Tagore at that point. Ever watched a Bong lady sucking on a fish head? Man.... that's what I call erotic! Surprising that Rituporno has not included such a sequence in his movies so far.Well.... I'm off. Smoked Hilsa, here i come. Back on the blog on monday. Ciao Ciao till then.
