A welcome note
I am glad that your wandering self has stumbled upon this little food haven in the lust of finding an idea to fulfil the craving hungry stomach. I most humbly welcome you here, stranger, starting with a little prayer for you. I hope that your mind finds an inspiration to cook here, your tummy finds satisfaction in what you made from here and your soul finds a positivity from all the healthy benefits.
I come from India, a land of species and taste. I grew up with the smells of chilli infused oil, roasting nan breads, sizzling tandooris, basmati rice, masala chai and ripe mangoes. Only another fellow Indian will be able to truly understand how central food is to the Indian way of life. But for those don’t know this, trust me that on what we Indians live to eat. For us, food and cooking is the most important chore of the day, a way to start and end the day, a way to worship, a way to express, a way to celebrate…it is life in itself.
As strange as this may sound coming from a person who is just about to start a blog solely based on food, up until a few years back, food was not important at all to me! But then, I flew away from from my roots, into a foreign land, where food worked its magic for me. It earned me a welcome, acceptance, friendship, love, peace and a new passion and inspiration. It brought me great joy to cook for my loved ones, to put a smile on their faces with my food and to wittingly fish for their compliments. Here, in UK, food gave me family. It brought me a chance to not only re-discover Indian food, but also experiment with global cuisines. What better place to train the palate in international taste than London!
So, here I am with this blog…to share the joy of cooking, to inspire others to not only cook, but to cook healthy and tell my tales of woe and foogasmic ecstasy. I hope you enjoy this experience just as much as me. I shall look forward to hearing your tales in my comments section.
See you soon and until then, keep cooking healthy and delicious.
