About the Author

Self-employed – equity investor by profession, food aficionado/ enthusiast and blogger at heart. That is not to say equities and this stint in stock markets is not exciting but food and writing hold a special place. Previously worked in the research and content space, post which during a long break the idea of coming out with cookbooks of some of my Mom’s select recipes took shape.

It started out as a creative project, borne out of my love for food but soon became a journey of discovering the magic of flavours, inter-play of ingredients and how simplifying can be the key to great taste. And therein lies a beautiful dichotomy, simple may sound easy but cooking delicious food where you don’t overshadow the main ingredient can be quite a challenge…the result of which is relished….quite literally!

Food Philosophy

Our food influences are mainly from the northern part of India, with our take on it, not confirming to any set style of cooking the dishes. Food at home was never very spicy. Spices are used in just the adequate quantity and the food is definitely big on flavours. Over the years friends and family have enjoyed our food at home and have often asked for the recipes. But what really caught my attention was the surprise on their faces, when told how simple and minimalistic the recipe was. This fact stayed with me and it showed that to get something right you don’t need to complicate it, infact the exact opposite.

“Simplify and only do as much is required, and yes one more thing,
no shortcuts or compromise when it comes to taste!”
