My Love For Cooking
My love for cooking has led me to my cooking blog. Welcome!
I grew up in India and have been cooking since the age of 12. My father used to always compliment my cooking skills and joked about me opening a restaurant. Ever since my mom bought her first gas cook-top stove, I have been the one cooking family meals daily. I am a life-long vegetarian and have raised two children who are also vegetarian. After immigrating to the US, I started enjoying Western, Italian, Mid-Eastern, and Mexican food from a variety of restaurants. My interests lie in practical vegetarian and Indian cooking that can be done on a daily basis. I have adopted ideas from other cultures and recreated these menus at home with a pinch of my secret sauce. Recently I have taught a vegetarian cooking class at Indiana State University and at Clabber Girl cooking school. The kitchen is my lab where wonderful tastes come alive.
In addition to great taste, my opinion is that all of my recipes should be quick to prepare and include all the essential nutrients. I believe that you are what you eat and it is important to get a well-balanced meal that is practical to cook in today’s world.
