We are on Facebook!
Each week's menu, along with the original recipe links, is posted up on the Govinda's Catering Facebook page. I was very pleasantly surprised to discover one day that Govinda's Catering is very Google searchable - meaning that if you search for "Govinda's Catering jackfruit," our Facebook post for an entree with jackfruit in it will come up in the first several search results. In a world where there are literally dozens of Govinda's restaurants and caterin
Good morning! I don't know about you all, but I really, and I mean, really have missed you all. It has been a very busy several weeks so far. The National Animal Rights Conference in Alexandria, VA was an amazing event. I worked harder than I thought was possible, had a huge boost to my confidence due to the overwhelmingly positive reaction to our food, and met many, many beautiful new friends.
I definitely needed last week to recover from my adventures though. There is no
Even if you are one of those "Let me skip this long-winded blog and just read the menu" kind of person (no hurt feelings, just acknowledging that this happens), please do read this section today, as it contains important information about our schedule for the month of August.
A couple of weeks ago, Helene, the organizer for the Triangle VegFest, asked me if I would be interested in being a vendor for the National Animal Rights Conference in Alexandria, VA. Hmm... being a v
This Saturday my band, Samadhi, had a beautiful kirtan at Triangle Yoga in Chapel Hill. I realized that I had been sadly negligent in promoting the event. In fact, if it hadn't been for Facebook, I, myself might have forgotten to attend... Uh, that's when you know that you might have too many things on your mind. Nearly forgetting your own performance is right up there with forgetting your child somewhere (which has happened, but fortunately only twice in 11 years). That bein
I don't know if April 15th has any significance to you all other than it happened to be Easter Sunday this year. After spending several years in the tax and bookkeeping business, April 15th is a kind of bold type day for me in that it is generally Tax Day. This year the tax deadline is tomorrow, April 18th, yet that doesn't really mean that my world has been any less crazy than it would have been if the deadline were still the 15th. Suffice it to say that between a few tax cl
We are back in action with a "Save the Date kind of email. For those of you who did not place an order last week, let me fill you in. I had the opportunity last week to experience that old saying that "First you tell God your plans, and then He laughs." After I diligently put together last week's newsletter and sent it off, my son was diagnosed with a good, strong case of the flu. Despite my valiant attempts to stave it off, I was delirious with fever by that night. There was
This is a "Save the Date" kind of email. There are many events coming up in the next few months that I would love to invite you all to. Some of them are music-related, while some are events that feature Govinda's, and some are both. All, I hope, will be fun for you. Please mark your calendars and let me know if you plan to come so that I can make sure to be on the look-out. I had originally intended to make this a compilation issue of resources for combating political insanit
This is a Save the Date kind of email. There are many events coming up in the next few months that I would love to invite you all to. Some of them are music-related, while some are events that feature Govinda's, and some are both. All, I hope, will be fun for you. Please mark your calendars and let me know if you plan to come so that I can make sure to be on the look-out. I am pulling two events out of chronological order because, well, I would love for you to read about them
Good evening everyone! As I promised you last week, here are the reviews for two local Indian food establishments. My partner made a wise observation that perhaps it doesn't make so much sense for me to review my "competition," since I am not likely to be impartial. As usual his insight completely took me by surprise, but made perfect sense, once I thought about it. I had originally begun writing reviews, not as a means to slyly denigrate other chefs, but to give my readers a
You know that I am committed to exploring the Triangle and exploring its culinary and cultural offerings, just so that I can report back to you. ;-) Or perhaps it is more accurate to confess that I have a thirst for newness and variety. And because I have a weekly readership of sorts, I get to satisfy my social cravings in the name of doing research for the blog. I love it! The mind can rationalize just about anything... The other day it actually crossed my mind that The Indy
