As a multi award-winning chef, bestselling author, TV channel proprietor and hugely successful syndicated show host, Sanjeev Kapoor is arguably the world's most revered exponent of Indian cuisine.

For the past 18 years he has concocted a handful of new recipes every week as the host of "Khana Khazana," said to be India's most watched, and Asia's longest-running, cookery program.

As if that weren't impressive enough, Kapoor has penned 36 cookbooks, while his website consistently attracts a hungry audience of 25 million users a month.

Suffice to say, the man has a distinguished rep in the venerable tradition of Indian cuisine.

Ray Isle (@islewine on Twitter) is Food & Wine's executive wine editor. We trust his every cork pop and decant – and the man can sniff out a bargain to boot. Take it away, Ray.

Spring is in the air, which means you're either gamboling in the grassy fields (or your nearest urban park) and looking for love, or else you're sneezing your head off and wishing one of those gamboling twerps would just trip over a rock or something. Regardless, you need a drink.

Dread solo dining on the road? Site serves up safe company

Rochelle Peachey, the founder of the dating site I Love Your Accent, is sitting alone in a restaurant, gabbing away on her cellphone, when a few minutes into the conversation, the phone she's talking into starts to ring. Busted!

Such is the length Peachey once went to in order to battle the embarrassment and awkwardness she - and so many female business travelers like her - feels when dining alone.

"I detest walking into a restaurant to request the dreaded table for one," says Peachey, who typically makes three or four business trips a month. "When I walk into a restaurant or bar alone, I feel others see me as either a woman out to pick up men or a sad, lonely spinster."

A new website called Invite For a Bite aims to change all that. The site serves as a sort of meeting place where women who hate supping solo can post invites and make plans to dine together.
