Hello, This June, as we celebrate World Environment Day, we look at different ways to 'green' &e city. With the news that Tamil Nadu is going to ban plastic shortly, we hope the state too will take stronger efforts to make our city more eco-friendly. Our Tea Talk section showcases how companies too can join the 'green' bandwagon with a pioneer sharing his secrets. What's more? We take you on an unexpected journey along the banks of Chennai's famous river. Yes, discover the hidden tales behind the legendary Coovum.

Even our food trail follows up on an eco alternative to cow's milk. But if you can't give up on cheese like us, you have got to discover this new cheesy haven with us on Big bite. All this and more on our 'green' issue, read on and let us know what you think. Team Discover Chennai

Tree Bank "Though I started Tree Bank in 2008, I have been planting trees from when I was a thirteen year old kid and now I am 51," said Mullaivanam G, founder of Tree Bank. Formally registered in 2008, Tree Bank has been into tree plantation, maintenance and preservation of indigenous species across the country and has planted 75 lac trees thus far. The NGO dreams to give one or two saplings to every citizen of the country. The NGO distributes saplings for free to people all over the country but with one condition: the caretaker must religiously devote time and energy in nurturing the plant which will be monitored and tracked by volunteers. The team also teaches people to maintain the plant and give the maintenance kit. This Environment Day, Tree Bank kick starts 'Vanathukul Chennai' program where the kids across the city will be motivated to plant and maintain trees. This particular initiative plans to make up to the loss of trees during 2015 floods and Vardah cyclone in 2016. To become a member of Tree Bank, one has to plant and maintain five trees at least in a year. Ready to green your ward? Contact: 9444004310

Recently, dairy industry has received lot of flak for animal abuse and there are many who are taking to nut milk due to dietary and ethical restrictions. Those with lactose tolerance can gleefully gulp up the almond milk, extracted from almonds. They are also loaded with high fibres and essential minerals and vitamins. Almond milk also helps alkalize the digestive system and helps treat heart bum and acidity.





It is fascinating to note that almond milk was quite popular in Islamic and christian communities during the middle ages. As a nut, it was considered suitable for consumption during fasting. In Persia, a nut-milk dessert called harireh badamor (almond gruel) is served as a tradition during Ramadan. Raw Pressery has recently launched three variants (turmeric, coffee, cacao) of almond milk to cater to the increasing demand for nut milk across various retail outlets. Vegan or lactose intolerant, fret not, just slurp up this bottle of goodness.

A 'Cheesv' Affair!! True to its name the FROMAGE at Somerset, MRC Nagar is all about Cheese, only cheese and more cheese! It cannot get cheesier than this. The indigo blue French windows and bright yellow cushionedfirniture is inimitably European and all class and style.

The encounter with the Broccoli and Cheese soup was startling. The hot green soup along with the extremely stringy cheese are blended together and served right in the middle portion of - a bowl made out bread itself! The soup is a rich, creamy and buttery broth. The cheese added a lot of drama with its ropy texture that could be stretched to almost a foot from the table which might elicit a few giggles from the fellow diners! The Assorted Fried Cheese balls and the Onion Jam Feta Tortellini are absolute delights with their many distinct, powerful flavours bursting through with each mouthful!!

IUL ILnennal IJune LUIU I w ju

And then came the Beef Lasagna in all elegance and grandeur. The minced meat was succulent and moist in right proportions - stuffed snuggly inside the well crusted coat of cheese!! This rested on a base of tangy tomato sauce which lent acidity to this protein delight. CAUTION: Food aficionadosare also advised to try the delicious extra Spicy Wings resting on a bed of cheese, but are requested to resist temptation and go slow, on account of it being extremely fiery and addictive. Thank god for the cheese and its balming effect on the palate! If that can't get your heart rate going, the 24 Layer Chocolate Cake will surely make you swoon! For anyone wanting to drown in cheese and still stay alive to tell the tale, the Fromage is the destination to put on your GPS!

While Indians bought gold, silver and wine from the Romans, they imported spices and textiles from India. The banks Cooum river have also played a large le in the city's navigation. Yes, the first ane to Madras was flown on its banks in 10 and the first car and bus were made

Currently, the government has proposed a walkway along the river including a butterfly park, solar lighting, wooden seating etc. The city's first nature trail will be created in the 1.5 km stretch between the College Road bridge and the Mumoe bridge, in Chetpet.
