Resolutions...

No, it's not new year yet. But this is Bombay Foodie's 100th post. I've come a long way in the past months, made a few starts. More importantly, I've made so many friends...lovely people who have stopped by with beautiful, encouraging comments and mails.

And yet, with the last 100 posts, my wishlist of foodie flavors yet to explore hasn't diminished, rather it's grown. This is a wishlist of things I would like to do, but it's a list I fully expect to get longer for my 200th post. So here goes:

1. Bake a whole loaf of bread

2. Eat at one of the top 50 restaurants in the world. And no, Bukhara doesn't count, even if it ever makes to top 50

3. Make sushi

4. Delve into the alchemy of food. Create something, anything that qualifies as molecular gastronomy.

5. Bake and decorate a cake

6. Make fresh mozarella cheese

7. Make macarons

8. Make fresh pasta

9. Taste blood oranges

10. Cook with rhubarb

11. Make mango pickle like mom

12. Make appams

13. Eat a Meyer lemon

14. Make S'Mores

15. Make a cream puffs tower (who knows what it's called; can't pronounce it anyway)

16. Make a perfect cup of hot chocolate

17. Taste wild rice

18. Learn to pare and cook globe artichokes

19. Buy blue cornmeal

20. Try Ethiopian cuisine

21. Taste Gucchhi (morels)

22. Cook with 20 different kinds of beans and/or lentils (11 so far and counting!)

23. Bircher Muesli - make it or find it

24. Recreate the egg korma I once ate in Hyderabad

25. Grow my own herbs

Congratulations on the century!That's quite some list. I've done some on that (and a few not very successfully) and I can see some I need to put on my own list.
May you complete this list and make a new one to keep you going.:)
