I am currently living in the UK for the last 11 years with my family-hubby Dinesh, and two adorable kids- thirteen year old Rengoni and twelve year old Agastya. I am originally from Assam ,India- the land of the mighty Brahmaputra river,the land of hills, the home of the one-horned rhinocerous, and most importantly the land of the world-famous Assam Tea!
A one time lecturer of English literature, and also a qualified lawyer,I gave up work outside home to give more time to my family. At the moment, I work from home as a tutor for primary school aged children, preparing them for competitive exams. In addition, I am also the proud owner of a baking business, and also take Indian cookery lessons. Apart from blogging, my other interests include, reading, listening to music, cycling , nature and food photography.
This blog is a space where I record my day to day ramblings as well as the hits and misses in my kitchen, where I do spend quite a lot of enjoyable time. I have recorded quite a few recipes, most of them, coming from my oven as I simply love baking. I have always loved cooking, but, baking was my first love. I try to keep most of my bakes as healthy as possible.’ Eating healthy does not have to be boring’, is something I firmly believe in. But, of course, I do give in to cravings and indulge once in a while.
I have had no formal training in cooking/baking, and what you see on this blog is a result of my passion. I have developed most of the recipes myself through trial and error and through my never ending thirst to experiment with various ingredients and techniques. And the fact that I cook fresh meals on a daily basis does help too.
Some of the recipes in this blog also reflect the rather simple but pleasant flavours of my native Assamese cuisine, which I have grown up with. All the recipes posted in this blog, have been tried and tested in my kitchen, and have been made to suit our taste buds. I love experimenting with food and most of my recipes fall in this category. If you have tried any of my recipes, I will welcome any feedback, but, please keep in mind…palates differ from person to person.
I also have a feature in my blog- cooking videos, which, I hope, will be a real help to all my readers; after all, ’seeing is believing’, isn’t it?
After running successful Indian cookery classes in Ipswich and Colchester, I am now starting my cookery classes for small groups on a regular basis. For more details, check out my Cookery Classes page.
After more than eight years of blogging, it feels really nice to be a part of the wonderful food blogging community.
