I do not have any formal training in cooking, I have learnt how to cook mostly from my mother. This is my space to talk about the food I love, foods which cheer me up, memories associated with certain foods, traditions around food, new cuisines I try out, restaurants and cafes I eat in, people who motivate me to cook and much more.

I am a Bengali from India so I guess I know Indian food best. Being a ghoti/ Bengali from West Bengal the food I have grown up eating has a lot of sugar, very different from the hot food of the Bengalis from East Bengal. I will try and post as many ghoti recipes here as I can.
Am a keen supporter of organically and locally grown produce and the Fairtrade/ ethical trading movement! I try to use these ingredients in my cooking. Having grown up in pre-liberalized India, I was raised strictly on seasonal fruits and vegetables. As an adult living in the West, the food options open to me are numerous, but I am trying to find out about the seasonal produce and use these. I try to stay away from the processed, tinned and packed stuff as much as I can.
Apart from being interested in cooking, I like painting. Recently I have started doing small craft projects for our home. I would like to share these also over here.
I also blog at Hold A Thought, Pen It Down.
Of course all this writing and posting on my part will not make much sense if you do not read it. I welcome you to my blogs and would love to hear from you, dear readers. Comments, ideas, views, questions are eagerly awaited.

Affectionately and sincerely,
P.S. The photos in this blog are mostly taken by me with my new DLSR camera. I am a novice photographer with not much talent or skill. Please bear with the amateurish photos.
