Being a global citizen and a member of the information explosion era, I have been fortunate to be exposed to flavors of the world, both in person and insilico. I have always been passionate about all aspects of gastronomy, right from knowing the qualities of each ingredient that goes into food to styling and food photography. Being a mom, wife and a trained food scientist, I have growing passion in the creation of healthy, fully home cooked meals with wholesome ingredients without compromising on the taste front. It is a challenge which i thoroughly enjoy. Moreover being a firm believer in the saying that "you are what you eat" especially in this era when it is easy to make wrong food decisions, the long term effects of which on the family is far reaching. I must say, I have been fortunate to have a family and group of friends who really appreciate and encourages my culinary efforts which is the prime force that keeps me ticking. It is true that there is a lot of variation in taste preferences between individuals and one person's "lip-smacking" recipe might not feel so great for another, hence i tried to incorporate those recipes which can tolerate a wide variation in spice levels and still turn out good.
