About

This blog is all about food. Everything about food. By a foodie, for the foodies!

Whether it is served on fine china or a paper plate, food always brings us together and stimulates conversation. We feast to rejoice, mourn, strengthen friendships, celebrate and simply to be hospitable. Good eating is, indeed, one of life’s greatest pleasures

A cooking enthusiast since I was barely 11, I have always believed in the power of food. It helps you to not just survive, but also connect with peers at a spiritual level. I have had some very interesting conversations with some very influential people in my journalistic career. And all of these conversations have taken place over good food.

Funnily, even my now husband proposed marriage to me in a plush Oriental cuisine restaurant in Delhi, as I was munching away merrily at Sushi. While I did choke on the Sushi at the unexpected question (unexpected because it was just our second “date”!), I was happy that food marked another milestone of my life!

Food, thus, is an important aspect of my life. And this is what this blog is all about. I believe in innovation. I believe in making the best out of the waste. And that’s what makes cooking a different experience for me.

A hardcore fish eater transformed into a hardcore veggie is what describes me. And this is what will be reflected in this blog. I believe in promoting “green” and though my non-vegetarian friends might be a tad disappointed, I can assure you that once you try out these vegetarian delicacies, you’ll fall in love with green, too. Else, you can always replace the vegetables with meat of your choice while keeping the spices same, and have a dish of your choice πŸ™‚

Enjoy leafing through, and stay connected! πŸ™‚
