The Gourmands are Here!

While we may not be champions born with effortless and splendid culinary skills, we proudly call ourselves the Zoink! Gourmands who like to mix business with pleasure (gastronomic pleasure, before you jump to any conclusions). While we dine at some of the best restaurants in Bangalore, our minds are always racing and figuring a way how the wonderful product could be marketed and shared better on a social platform.

Yes, we are a social media agency, but we like to focus exclusively on restaurants, because, that’s where our strengths lie. And just because we are a social media agency, we don’t want to abuse this space by just dishing out Facebook and Twitter gyaan taken straight from Mashable. No, sir. We want to create a space where we can discuss our favourite food hot spots, favourite dishes, easy recipes – to unite everyone in the universal love trance of food. Coupled with that maybe, we’d like to share how social media is helping us spread this love! 🙂

Yes, we paid for the Bruschetta:-( No, we didn't get paid for the Z! Approval 😛

Many of you have already seen our FB page (those who haven’t, ‘Like’ us on the right.. Right Now!!), and have been asking us on the food recommendations that we dish out on the pages.

Just a disclaimer – whatever recommendations you see on the page are entirely by the Zoink! Team and are not a sponsored story whatsoever! We do not promote restaurants on our FB page. Period. There have been a lot of people asking us whether we are paid by restaurants to put up these glorious food updates. The answer is a big fat NO! The Zoink! Team dines out very often and knows which are the best places in Bangalore to eat at suiting your taste, cuisine, budget, etc. We will NEVER recommend a restaurant to our Zoink! followers that we ourselves don’t like, or haven’t tried ourselves. This blog space, and the FB pages and Twitter handles are dedicated to giving YOU honest recommendations that we know you’d love! 🙂

Before we sign off, here’s a little food trivia of the day – Did you know that carrots used to be purple before the 17th century? Yup, you read right. Purple (also the Zoink! Team’s favourite colour :P)

The Ancestral Purple Carrots!

The modern day orange carrot wasn’t cultivated until Dutch growers in the late 16th century took mutant

strains of the purple carrot, including yellow and white carrots, and gradually developed them into the sweet, plump, orange variety we have today. Before this, pretty much all carrots were purple with mutated versions occasionally popping up including these yellow and white carrots among others.

Pretty cool, huh? These Dutch farmers could put Gregor Mendel to shame! Follow us to learn more fun facts on food and get Zoinked! 🙂
