Entertaining Cooking Sessions- Syed Zainul Abedin

We live by eating food.We always have our foods cooked in our homes.Usually house wives or women prepare foods and serve among the members of the families.The cooking sessions in home kitchens are not usually videoed and shown to the peoples through televisions,internets or other media.
But cooking sessions are getting popular day by day through the blessing of media and information technology.Many house wives,amateur novice of cooking and professional chefs now appear in different media and demonstrate their showmanship in cooking.Some of them draw world wide attention and familiarity.The reason of viewing of the sessions might be the special recipies representing many cultures.Other reason might be the style of presentation of the cooking sessions.Some presentations draw large audience because of the entertaining nature of the sessions.The presenters become famous through their cooking sessions.The stars are mostly women but many men also become cooking stars.They regularly appear in the television programmes.They also operate accounts in social media like facebook and youtube.
They publish articles in newdpapers and periodicals and sell cd,dvd or other technology based products.Some of them talk on radios too,though visual presentation seem more acceptable. Books on cooking might sound as old fashioned,yet house wives and novice who try to prepare a new recipe largely depend on the popular books as permanent and lasting reference material.
I believe that food should be safe,nutritious, as well as delicious.The combination of all these aspects should be considered equally.Besides,the concept of balance food should also be maintained both by the cooking personnel and consumers.Decoration of food should be confined within the limit of safety.The appreciation of beauty or aesthetics will always make a cooking session more entertaining and attractive.Hence,the presenters of the cooking sessions
may try to be creative and decent to be accepted by peoples belonging to different cultures,sex or age groups.

I am presenting this article to showcase special cooking sessions presented by famous cooking stars.I felt that such presentations might provide entertainment in addition to the training on cooking.The response by the visitors on the youtube video of Laura Vitale has inspired me to dedicate my time on cooking.I am presenting some interesting recipies of Laura Vitale at the beginning.Her special style of presentation appear entertaining.I hope visitors will enjoy the presentations and write their comments for their desired recipies.

Boi Mela,Praner Mela (Book Fair,Heart's Fair): Always New and Lively

The Book Fair, popularly known as ‘BOI MELA’ organized every year during the month of February at the Bangla Academy premises is not merely a collection of books.It is a passion of Bangladeshi people.It reflects the history,tradition and pride that grew over thousand of years of Bangladeshi culture.
I visited the Boi Mela again last evening.It was yet another new experience.All the visitors were new.I was amazed to see the completely new set of visitors walking happily.They were smiling,sharing and gossiping with divine pleasure.They were buying books with great enthusiasm.I felt very amazed to see that peoples thronged in front of a number of book stalls.The crowds also looked exceptional and new.They created no chaos.They were very disciplined.
The stalls also looked new with new sets of books and new sets of sales personnel.
Never again I saw the same little child staring at the white swans swimming in the
round pond of Bangla Academy.A new mother was playing with her little kid .
A new set of writers took the seats of Lekhok Kunjo(Writers’ Hamlet) and exchanged pleasantry.
I enjoyed silently all the new things in the Book Fair.It is always a meeting place of passonate hearts.It is always a lively place.
