NT BUZZ

The seventh edition of ‘Ishtann’ (in English) was released by chairman, de Souza Group, Ralph de Souza, and co-founder Capvent AG, Varun Sood, in the presence of publisher Sapna Sardessai along with the daughters of the author late Padma Mahalé Megha Thakker and Varsha Deshpande, at Barcode Lounge and Grill in Porvorim recently.

Translated from the original Konkani version by Sapna Sardessai, ‘Ishtann’ is a collection of traditional Saraswat and other recipes that are immensely popular in Goa.

Sapna Sardessai commenced the event by remembering the late Padma with gratitude and affection and revealed that she was the angel behind Printer’s Devil.

Ralph de Souza spoke about the need to combine both tradition and the experience of the new, especially within the Catholic/Hindu community. Varun Sood analysed the growing popularity of Saraswat cuisine in Goa and overseas.

Megha Thakker fondly reminisced about her mother’s love for innovation in traditional food to make it appeal to her children.
