RIP Issey Miyake. He was, in my (admittedly controversial), opinion easily the greatest designer of the last half century. He transformed the design aesthetic and offered an alternative to Western notions of fashion. He was one of a kind.
Okay, don't know who shared my email with a whole new bunch of PR folks but I don't want to profile your son's new venture in silver & brass jewellery, not blown away by the smart STP/SWP facility and there's no 'editorial opportunity' for your renowned industry name. #pleasestop

It was. In Rick’s Bar. And, I wouldn’t have thought about it but for your column. As I told you before I put on a kilo reading it and now maybe two more following your culinary potions. twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

Thank you @airindiain for taking the feedback about baggage delivery so seriously. Impressive follow up.
The Taste : Did your grandmother use many tomatoes in her cooking? Was it normal to use cheese with Indian dishes? Did your grandfather eat instant noodles? This week’s Taste is on the new ingredients that have been introduced into our meals. hindustantimes.com/opinion/the-ta…

@virsanghvi Spot on write up Mr Sanghvi. By the looks of it an Umami tsunami is fast approaching the Indian shores ! Probably Parmesan and mushrooms will be the next candidates to be ubiquitous?

@virsanghvi Nice one! Just yesterday there was a debate at a gathering at home on essentially Indian vegetables, that veered into topics of cheese, tomato, etc. Strangely almost all swore tomato is indigenous and core element of our generational food. This article & I see eyebrows raised now

Very engaging write-up by @virsanghvi . And yes, if I run out of tomatoes, i get restless. Even my sambhar is made w/ tomatoes instead of tamarind. Also, the fridge is never complete w/o cheese, soy sauce & mayo. However, didn’t think abt the outside influence till I read this👇�twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…ad

@virsanghvi In our traditional home Dakhni style recipes... cheese was never used. As a child, cheese became an acquired taste first with imported Kraft slices. And then of course, pizzas. Had avoided paneer for years and started eating it only as an adult.

Interesting piece and theory by @virsanghvi - that most recent developments in Indian restaurant cuisine have been caused by the subcontinent’s discovery of umami flavours hindustantimes.com/opinion/the-ta…

Another insightful piece by @virsanghvi about one of my fav snacks :-) Apart from the amazing version at the @OberoiGurgaon that @AshLilani introduced me to, the other version I love is the one at the Chambers in @taj_coromandel :-) And Vir, I LOVED that Welsh Rabbit story :-) twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

@virsanghvi here is the home version today, inspired by your article. Used whole wheat bread and avoided peppercorn!

@virsanghvi Thanks you Vir for sharing details about Cheese Toast . Most importantly giving credit to Chef Arora and also his hand written recipe which is simple but most delectable stress buster.

In response to my column today there have been those who say the Yogi Model works because there is less lawlessness in Uttar Pradesh. Wrong. On a daily basis come reports of brutal crimes against women and Dalits.

@virsanghvi Only Vir could have gone into and written beautifully about the genesis of Indian cheese toast. Such an interesting read. As simply described as the recipe of Indian cheese toast.

A staple of the old colonial Clubs of Calcutta and it delighful as usual from @virsanghvi to get back to the Mumbai roots of the Chilly Cheese Toast. Do read. twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

@virsanghvi Thanks for a piece that’s as simple as the CCT and equally interesting start to end. Kudos to your efforts for finding the origins of various dishes and giving the creditors their due. Clearly see material that’s worth a book.

I recently watched a chilli cheese toast recipe video by @ranveerbrar where he’d revealed how many they made on a daily basis at Lko Taj in the ’90s & the younger lot had to sweat it out at the salamander. @virsanghvi introduces us to the inventor of the hit recipe- Satish Arora. twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

#ExpressOpinion | Karnataka CM should be ashamed that he has become a proponent of this jungle justice. Those who believe that it was this kind of rough justice that won Adityanath a second term in office should also be ashamed. @tavleen_singh writes: bit.ly/3Q4AnvZ

All Hail Satish Arora for his amazing creation called "Chilli Cheese Toast" twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi Interesting article. Was never a fan of cheese toast as most times I across it as finger food at drinks/cocktails. But Satish Arora’s recipe has stirred the anxiety to try it again - maybe in more appropriate way
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
Trust Vir to whip up a gastronomic delight each week. Like a true detective he went into the thick of cheese ( this time ) and presented us the entire journey of chilli cheese toast. Enjoyed reading the writeup and now feeling really hungry and guess what I want to eat ? Lol TX twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

Such an interesting read, as usual, @virsanghvi ... You may recall The Item (plain form) from #MissionCafe & #Status, both near the #ABP offices in #Kolkata & #Mumbai , respectively... Atlanta Bldng & 6 PS... Pity everybody can't get it right... #RudeFood twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

@virsanghvi Thank you for writing on the humble chilli cheese toast & its origins- brings on so much nostalgia ! & the Taj can be credited with so many firsts, some of which one would otherwise never know about

Used to be all time favourite snack, thanks for rekindling the tastebuds once again Vir ji twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

The best chilli cheese toast I’ve had in Bombay is at two places - Wongs in Juhu and upar wale neighbours. Just a delightful read! twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

Thanks Vir for this fascinating “slice” of cheese toast history. Had no clue that the honour of inventing it belongs to Chef Satish Arora! @virsanghvi twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

Cheese chilli toast is one of my favourites and I had no idea about it’s origin nor the history around Welsh rarebit . A great read as always !! twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

@virsanghvi @seemagoswami A beautiful view from the window can be uplifting for our mood. All I remember about some busy work trips is the #viewfrommywindow. It makes all the difference- not just during a vacation, but also at work. Or at home. Totally agree with @seemagoswami

@nirupamakotru @virsanghvi If I were a Vice Chancellor of some University, I'd straightaway award a doctorate degree to @virsanghvi for his immaculate research. I love cheese toast and after reading this, I guess I'm going to love it even more....

@virsanghvi My fav to order at the IIC. As always @virsanghvi pleasure reading
Retweeted by vir sanghvi
@virsanghvi As usual, a toasty 😊 slice of an article on one of the most underrated snacks, stringed with tasty anecdotes; cheesy delights; and clarity on a rare bit of info about Welsh rabbits. My fav version is with cheese, fresh coriander, green chilli, pepper, grilled in a toasty.

Delightful history of my favourite cheese toast! Will remember Chef Arora next time for sure! twitter.com/virsanghvi/sta…

Rude Food: Chilli Cheese Toast may be India’s most popular cheese dish. But it was only invented in the 1970s and the man who invented it has never got the credit. hindustantimes.com/lifestyle/brun…
@virsanghvi @seemagoswami Yes, it is one thing I always love to have in a hotel, not that I succeed every time. My best was this view from the Hotel at Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad, Mar 30,2019. Swimming in this pool was a delight

@virsanghvi Terrific piece on the irresistable #chillicheesetoast! You've traced the dish so intriguingly, from England & the 'Welsh rabbit' to the great city of Mumbai, India! This is #foodwriting - celebrating history, chefs & deliciousness - at its best!

@BarthakurAmrita @MathiasSuhring @TSuhring @virsanghvi @RaajSanghvi @AshLilani @_varunengineer Absolutely! One of the best curated meals I've had in a while! Thanks @virsanghvi and @RaajSanghvi for bringing the Suhring Twins to Bangalore for one amazing evening! We totally need more such events here! @MathiasSuhring @TSuhring , thank you for the (culinary) music :-)
