Growing up in a liberal Indian household, my earliest memories of good food involved a fusion of traditional Konkani, Maharashtrian, North/South Indian and Western cuisines.
My mother is a talented cook, a well travelled individual and inspired in me the tradition to innovate and to blend the spiciness of my heritage, with the cuilinary traditions of the world. My efforts were always encouraged with a smile.
As a teenager my initial experiments with cooking were not always successful. My first chicken curry was a disaster, with it turning out to be a half cooked horror. I remember being in tears and inconsolable. It took a fabulous takeaway from a restaurant close by home to banish my embarassment. I learnt since then to take failure in my stride.
My passion for perfection in good food urged me to take up a career in Home Science and a Masters in Dietetics and Nutrition. I am now a full time mom to two growing children and the better half of a committed foodie, who challenges me to innovate and adapt my cuilinary skills to new highs.
Now with time on my hands I want to share the stories of two decades of my cooking and integrate my passion for good food in this website. Not to forget constant encouragement from family and friends too. So here’s to traditional old recipes and new ones too. Ready steady cook!!! Hope you find it enjoyable and in your taste is my satisfaction.
