Story of The BBQ Story

Paneer Makhni is now passé. Vilayeti Sabzi Makhni (with zucchini, baby potatoes, cherry tomatoes) is in. Hey, don’t cry ‘sacrilege’ yet!!! It isn’t. The economy opened up two decades back and so did India’s appetite for global cuisine. Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean speciality restaurants are now present in almost every ‘gully’-‘nukkad’ of Indian cities….

But how about Hungarian goulash and Spanish kebabs? How about finding out the origins of Biryani? How about making your own sausages and steaks in your house? How about growing tomatoes and chillies in your own porch or window sill? Looks like we finally have your attention…..

Presenting to you the The BBQ Story — The brain-child of Sarabjeet Singh, BBQ Story, in collusion with Sushil Dwarkanath (Sarabjeet’s HOD at Christ University Dept of Hotel Management, Bangalore) and Faseeulla S (Co-Founder and Partner with Sarabjeet in their venture called Green Umbrella Kitchen solutions) organises grilling and cooking lessons on the first Sunday of every month in Yolk Studio, Koramangala, Bangalore. These classes are called ‘Chapters’ and so far, four chapters have concluded. With that, enthusiasts have learned how to marinade their meats to their tastiest best, grill a complete meal, make creamy chicken tikka and murg biryani the Bangalore style, grill mutton kheema patties, grill fish wrapped in plaintain leaf, and most recently, make country style grilled steaks and home-made fresh sausages. Once cooked, the food is matched with an appropriate brand of Nine Hills wine and instantly devoured!! Mouth-watering? You bet…

But what is most endearing about BBQ Story is the fact that they enthuse in their participants the cause for ‘life’ – they ensure that every participant goes back home with a sapling (tomato, chilly, so far – with promises of coriander, basil in the near future) so that they can be a part of the growth of the plant, partake in the joy of seeing the plant bear flowers and fruits, and appreciate the cycle of life. Haven’t we all gone far away from these little joys in our every day chase to make a living? Time to re-consider…BBQ Story shows the way.

Unfortunately, BBQ Story has so far been organised only in Bangalore. But, take heart, the success of the last four chapters has encouraged Sarabjeet and his team to look beyond their home turf and organise such delectable ‘grilling’ sessions in other Indian cities too. Keep watching this space for all updates…

In the meantime, write in to us to let us know if you liked reading about the BBQ team and if you want them in your city too. Guess if we manage of raise a good ‘demand’ storm, BBQ team will have no other option but to oblige us……..
