A heritage structure, lost in memories..........



Have anybody heard or seen a prestigious buliding like this before?

This the world's only surviving Building constructed by Dutch East India Company in the world.

This 350 year olf bungalow once reflected the might of Dutch Empire with offices and imperial residences of Dutch Army Commanders

This large bungalow was one of the places, where one of the greatest Botanical record Hortus Malabaricus were prepared.

Know this place?

Friends, I am not telling about any structure in Netherlands or Holland. This 350 year old historical monument lies in the heart of Kerala's own little Lisbon- The Fort Kochi, which was once the jewel of Dutch Imperial Crown

Friends- may I introduce David Hall, a living lost monument and legacy of Dutch history forgotten in pages of History, revived now to its back erstwhile glory and prestige.

Today the property belongs to Government of Netherlands maintained thro' its Overseas agency- CNO, now leased to Cochin's own leading hospitality chain- CGH Earth.

Today this large bungalow is a Dutch Centre where regular western performances are performed, a large art gallery, a traditional Dutch cafe and museum showcasing memorabilia that once associated with the Mighty Dutch Empire.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

An Article in Hindu

Sure-footed Time has taken its toll on much of Fort Kochi, altering it, except for a few landmarks that remain. David Hall retains its old world character. Here it seems Time walked out roaming carelessly around only to knock on its door recently. T he restored and renovated David Hall has opened as a cultural centre and an art gallery, with a chic, alfresco cafeteria and an art residence as part of its new face.

Makeover

The makeover by its present keepers, CghEarth hotel, who has taken it on lease from CNO India (Foundation for the cultural history of Netherlands Overseas) has been gentle and in line with its historicity.

Prof. R. Ramaswamy of TKM Engineering College, who has been associated with its restoration since 1990 (before it changed hands), is happy that the process is complete. “Any old building cannot survive without functioning. Finally in its new avatar this 300-year-old Dutch building will survive. It will be transferred to the next generation.”


And the new generation will get this legacy with its characteristic features intact. “We have strictly adhered to the Dutch typology while restoring the structure,” he said. Mridula Jose, interior architect explains the guidelines the team placed before themselves in this huge task.

“We wanted the building to be an exhibit on its own, besides the fact that it will be a canvas to showcase art and culture.” Former mayor and Councillor K.J. Sohan who was the custodian of the building till it got its present owners has some interesting facts about the place. Built in typical Dutch architecture, Sohan says that the wooden roof is made of flat face rafters as opposed to Kerala architecture where they stand vertical. These horizontal rafters result in a sag in the wood, which is supported by trusses across them. The restoration has exposed this wonderful old –Dutch style of construction and the roof is a showpiece by itself.

“The shape of the roof is like an upturned hull, which is a Dutch feature. We have removed the false ceilings and applied a protective coating of oil to protect the wood,” says Mridula

The new inserts like lighting, display and furniture are contemporary. The modern lighting highlights the drama of the rafters and the beams, the elegance and strength of wood. The wall, three feet wide in some places, and the four column windows are other Danish features. A historical curiosity arises form the single row of exposed yellow bricks on the front veranda.

Sohan explains the historical evidence: “They are natural stone that was brought from Europe as ballast in the ships! Many structures of the same period, in Fort Vypeen and Fort Kochi have these stones.” An expansive garden courtyard with its old trees has seating around them and the café, which will serve healthy gourmet food.

As the Hall was associated with the well-known Dutch commander Hendrik Adriaan Van Reede Tot Drakestein who is known for his ‘Hortus Malabaricus’, a book on the flora of Malabar Coast, there are plans afoot to grow those very plants there.

Jose Dominic, CEO cgh who ideated the concept approaches it as a centre to enjoy our historical legacy.

“We have done a contemporary adaptation of this historic space. It will be a gallery of art, craft of diverse communities of India and performing art centre of lesser and little known arts.”

Its formal inauguration done by the Dutch Ambassador and Minister of Culture on April 23rd 2009 and it threw open this ‘Ancient Dutch’ treasure the wheels of history once again turn in a new direction taking the vicissitudes of David Hall to a new tomorrow. And then Time would start afresh!

Woww, I visited the restaurant yesterday. It was literary crowded with no space to sit at all. I waited for 1/2 hour to get a seat. I think it was my first experience in any Kerala Restaurant.

The design was gorgeous and ideal for romantic dinners, provided the crowdy noise gets reduced. Perhaps on other days it may be not much crowded as yesterday was a holiday.

Food is really tasty and more good as it as an Star hotel appeal in presentation. I really liked it. Infact Masterchef Anil himself was present among the guests, seeking their opinions. A good initiative at all.

However the restaurant is slightly costly, unless you opt for buffet. Buffets are bit heavy for me. So I paid almost twice, to get my favourites in limited quantities.

I think, may be to control crowd, in today's newspaper ads of Spice Route restaurants are out, asking public to make advance seat booking for Buffet Dinners at 0484-4000040.

Thanks

Kochi will have a ballet dance school soon.

She is as complex and captivating a dancer as her lengthy name, and her dance moves will make you sit back and take note. Cecile Berrebi de Noailles from Paris was in the city recently for a dance workshop at the Daazlers Dance Studio on Ponneth Temple Road, Kadavanthra. The director and professor of contemporary choreographic workshops of dance and an active choreographer of Agora company, her life is dedicated to dance. “This is my second visit to Kerala and I would love to associate with the people here,” says the 43-year-old dancer who hardly looks her age. Cecile started learning ballet when she was five years old under Opera de Paris. She continued with her dance lessons into her teenage.


“I started learning contemporary dance when I was 17 and performed solo at the age of 21,” she says. Cecile who has choreographed almost 43 dance sequences of one-hour duration says she takes inspiration from everywhere, including paintings. “Contemporary dance is totally different from classical ballet as it portrays the evolution of the body, and is all about the freedom of thought process,” says Cecile.

Cecile loves to travel and she takes her dance all over the world. She also tries to learn new art forms during her journeys. “I have been to Japan and the US and have tried to imbibe their cultures as well,” says Cecile. During her first visit to Kochi she enrolled at the Dharani School to learn mohiniyattom and bharatanatyam. She even tried to master Carnatic music. “I wanted to introduce myself to Indian classical dance forms and found them extremely fascinating as well as complicated.” Cecile says she found them tough to master within a short span of time. “The dance forms here are entirely different and I could not adapt them to my dance choreography,” she says.
This international soloist dance’s mission in Kerala is to initiate a new thought process towards dance and implement different ideas on contemporary dance. Her two-hour dance class at the Daazlers was attended by a mixed group of dance lovers and dancers. There were classical and modern dancers and also yoga artists for the programme. She started with some stretching and breathing exercises, mostly adapted from the classical ballet moves. In the second half she taught the class a few contemporary dance moves. The two-hour dance session ended with relaxing warming down stretches. “I got a good response and I simply loved working with the group,” said Cecile at the end of the session. For all those who attended the class it was a big inspiration as it was an opportunity for them to learn contemporary dance with a touch of classical ballet.


“It was very useful for all those who attended it,” said Sreejith P, director of Daazlers Dance Studio who attended Cecile’s class. The Daazlers with Sanchara Dance Company is collaborating with the Parisian to introduce a new-age dance through different projects in Kerala. “Contemporary dance is yet to catch up here and modern dance as such is widely misinterpreted,” says Sreejith. “A dance sequence should be portrayed through body movements and not by using properties as seen in dance reality shows,” says Sreejith whose mission is to promote contemporary dance in its true form. Cecile’s plan is to spend six months in Kerala and six months in Europe. “Ballet is new to this part of the country. I want to start dance classes here so that people will get a chance to experience this classical dance form in all its splendour,” she says.


She hopes there will be many takers here for classical ballet. The city will witness her performance with Daazlers, as a dance event has already been organised in the coming months. So, if all goes as planned, Kochi will have a ballet dance school to its credit soon.

Bat & Ball Inn is joint venture of Robin Uthappa, S Sree Santh and J.K.Mahendra having branches in Bangalore and Hyderabad.



S 36 is the latest venture of Sreesanth in restaurant business. This time he decide to try desi flavour and chose Mughali.

The restaurant is well maintain and can seat upto 30 people at a time. The restaurant of-course upscale and well maintained



It has 2 areas, an indoor area where its very cosy. The outdoor area is open, spacious area with live grills and barbecue corner for evenings. It also has a ghazal platform where regular performances takes place after 7:30 pm



The food is quite good, tasty, though very limited. The presentation is almost equal for a star hotel. However selection remains to a few popular traditional items. The restaurant has good chaat corner and excellent juice selection, some even desi styles



Ideal for romantic dinner and corporate power lunches.

Personally I like the ambiance of Bat & Ball Inn. It is cozy and warm with elegant bed rooms, economical while almost like a home stay facility with only 5 rooms. I remember one Suit is named after Sir Viv Richards. We are one among the corporate customers for Bat & Ball Inn along with LG, ITC and others. The only restaurant serves chinese & North Indian dishes.
I had seen almost all the cricketers, film fraternities and celebrities name and their ravishing comments in the visitors / guest note book.
It is heard that a new group has taken over the management of the hotel from JK mahindra. And the garden restaurant also has renovated and named S32.
Cheers to Sreeshant, Robin & JK

Italian food fest at Le Meridien - Kochi / Cochin


Quote:
We gave you the buzz on the Italian food fest that started on the 15th at Le Meridien, the ‘Festa Italiana’. We got to check the fest firsthand ourselves yesterday. The fest at the Treasure Trove restaurant and the Italian ‘air’ can be seen as you reach the entrance. The whole placed is decked in the Venetian sort of style and the bright colors that do relate to Italy. The staff is similarly attired, friendly and warm. The spread looked impressive on a quick look over; we were greeted by the captain of the restaurant and offered Italian country bread with some pesto sauce, a light gentle start to ‘our’ Italian Fest. The buffet also offers beverages from beer to wines, red or white and the assorted juices or aerated drinks.
Cold meats


Cold meats

We checked out the Classical Minestrone Soup with pesto, the flavors of the herbs were gentle and it was just delightful. What’s wonderful about the subtle flavors of the herbs which can really make a difference to a dish. We checked out the assorted breads which had some interesting candidates like the pita bread, basil pesto bread, soft herb rolls, to be short, there were quite a few . To go along with the breads were a nice set of cheeses. We took our time enjoying the varied tastes of the breads and cheeses over a glass of red wine.
Our next step took us to the cold meats and salads section. You have your usual salad-material, lettuces, balsamic vinegar, olives, olive oil, zucchinis and a lot more of the green. What interested us more was the set of cold cuts, which did look pretty good and tasked likewise.
Assorted Breads


Assorted Breads

Over to the main course area, they had dishes that were already cooked and set, and then they had live stations. The live stations churned out food to-order. From a seafood station to a pasta and pizza station, it took us a while to decide on what to try out. On the main course section, we tried out the Grilled Beef with rosemary and red wine sauce. The meat was finely cooked, tender and properly done on the outside, tender and pink in the inside. That was indeed a fine sight, the meat was delightful, with the rosemary flavor being a little on the heavy side, but it being rosemary, who can complain. There was a chicken and a veal dish that tasted quite good too, cooked with tomato and white sauces, the main course had quite a good feel to it. There some side dishes like the wild mushroom fritters and roasted potatoes with Italian red onions which went well with the main course. italian food fest 023 (Large)
We were very lucky to get a plate of the grilled seafood, which had salt crusted Sea Bass with fennel and lemon salsa and calamari’s. The Bass was the dish that stood out, it was juicy, it was crispy, it was subtle, it oozed gentle flavors and it was succulent. That was the highlight for us, five stars for that dish, it was perfect!
We tried out their pastas which was again a lot, they had sauces from alfredo, carbonara, arrabbiata, mixed seafood sauces and many more. What interested us over the pastas they had was the two that was house made, Gnocchi and Tagliatelle, it added a nice authentic touch to the whole fest.


With the main course done with it was the Dolci ( sweets in Italian ) that we eyed. The dessert section was beautifully set up, there was an arrangement with resembled a tree on which Pannacotta’s were placed. The whole place looked quite nice and being the dessert section, it even intrigued us further. So with no further adieu, we tried out the different sweet savories. The Chocolate Pannacotta was heavenly. There were other like Kiwi, berry, they were also nice, but to me the Chocolate really stood out. And as I hoped they had Tiramisu and it was a welcome addition to the marvelous meal we had.
Heavenly


Heavenly

A good meal should always be topped off with coffee or tea and they brought us fresh cups of the same, as we sat back and looked back on the meal we had, I can say it was quite good. Service was very good, with the staff being very friendly and prompt on bringing you with anything that is required. The whole ambiance was nice and well toned, the spread was nice and varied, authentic to the feel. As a whole on the Italian Fest, is where you can take your family, your date, your friends or yourself for a nice dinner over a nice glass of wine ( or without), it is quite worth it to try out.
