Happy New Year From Tamil Nadu

Happy New Year to everyone!

We’ve just spent a week on the Coramandel Coast in southern India. I had intended  to be blogging  madly about South Indian dishes but we just couldn’t stop eating the fabulous beef – most notably at Nautilus Restaurant in Mamalapurram where we all ate Steak Frites for 4 nights running (their calamari was also excellent), but also at Le Club in Pondicherry.  We also loved the authentic baguettes and pastries at Baker Street in Pondicherry – close your eyes and you’re in Place Vendome!

I snapped these candy floss vendors on the beach front at Pondicherry – the pink looked so dramatic over the last of the monsoon skies.
