I’ve loved cooking since I was 6 & owe most of my talent to my mom. My latter inspirations came from cookery shows, cookbooks, restaurants & the places I’ve been around the world, leading to my interest in sampling diverse cuisines & reviewing restaurants. Join me as I re-live some of my fondest food-n-resto moments and share my recipes & ideas with the whole world! Check out my recipes, home remedies, ‘food.sify.com’ features & ‘yelp.com’ restaurant reviews. Feel free to send in your feedback, favorite recipes or smart tips & ideas & Join in on the fun!
I LOVE TO COOK… That’s apparent!
I like to experiment in the kitchen with recipes, home-remedies or handy-tips and enjoy improvising with available resources to make the most of whats available – I use my idli-steamer to make dhoklas & momos, for example! There’s SO much you can do, trust me!!!
Outside the kitchen, I indulge in food-writing (food-blogs, magazine-entries and features on food.sify.com) and restaurant reviews (on yelp.com). I like to keep up with the latest in movies, music cars & technology (I’m still quite a compu-spaz, though!) Apart from this, I love spending time with friends & family, reconnecting with long-lost ones (thanks to google & facebook) and networking – socially or professionally – basically, anything that involves PEOPLE, which is probably why I’m an HR professional.. Its all about the people!
Y my recipes n resto-reviews are so FAB – cus I KNOW food…. Can tell the ingredients by the taste!
Guilty pleasure – A large bowl of warm CERELAC ( Yeah, u got THAT rite!)
Latest edible discovery – Bacon-flavored Flame-grilled Tiger-prawns…… OoOoOoh Yeah!!!!
Last meal on earth would be – Beach-side BBQ with chilled beers in Goa!
To-heaven-n-back moment – Enjoying some Spicy Samosas and Masala Chai… IN THE RAIN!!!
If i write a book, it’ll be called – Live Laugh Love… And oh yeah, EAT!
Favorite Books – I don’t read.. I’d rather watch the movie..
Movies I love – My best friend’s Wedding!! The Rush Hour, Transformers & Fast and Furious series. ALL Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts & Will Smith movies. Smart movies like Sliding doors & Wicker park.
Music I move to – I appreciate the 80s, like the 90s and love the contemporary.. anything to suit my mood.. But yeah I don’t dig country & can’t stand ‘gansta’ rap!
Food for thought – Life’s not about worrying about the storm, its about learning to dance in the rain!
