Where flowers bloom, so does hope feat. Anthea Creation

Bubbly, energetic, full of positivity, and hope, Shreya Bhandari is an artist like not many others in India. She makes gorgeous nearly-perfect, absolutely gorgeous flowers in her studio Anthea Creation. The photoshoot we did thus had to match the energy, vibrancy and positivity of this sweet artist. Anthea creation has beautiful handcrafted gifts that are decorated with ornate, handcrafted clay flowers which are a sight to behold. What I loved about the art is that you can see fingerprints of the artist on the flowers, as if nature herself had created it. A few pictures of the flower-making process. The process seems quite simple but requires a lot of patience. The clay is first rolled and moulded into petal...

From farm to table, feat. zolocrust

If it’s one restaurant and client we love frequenting, it has to be zolocrust. It’s a one-of-a-kind restaurant where the chefs do all the work, from taking the order, to the billing, to operations, and even managing the kitchen along with the cleaning. What we absolutely love is the fresh, homegrown produce that zolocrust uses in their dishes. Many salad vegetables and ingredients are grown in their polyhouse using chemical-free methods. No wonder the taste is out of the planet. A few dishes we got to shoot and absolutely must-recommend. Burrata Salad Ooh, this one’s out of this world and will take your tastebuds places. The fresh burrata cheese which melts in your mouth is an add-on to the...
