I am an Indian, a wife and a mother of two little girls, a works-out-of-home consultant, currently a resident of the south of France, a really keen cook who loves to try and create interesting meals for family and friends, very interested in nutrition, and someone that loves to write (I have written in the past for http://www.desijournal.com/).
This blog is informed by the interconnectedness between those various identities.
So it is about what I cook for my family, how, why and everything else around that. Such as my “research”, as documented in the Food Facts section, about the nutritive value -or not- of the things we eat. This propensity for always wanting to investigate the benefits or otherwise of anything we eat and drink prompted Shri, my husband, to long ago label me the Food Police.
It is also the place where I want to preserve some of the little everyday stories and memories of my life with my girls that I don’t want to lose to the passage of time.
One day, I hope, my daughters will find this endevor useful if they try to recreate the tastes of home as I do now, when I try to cook something just the way my mother does.
Along the way, it would be wonderful to exchange ideas with others out there who are as interested in this whole fascinating subject of food.
