Hi, I am Payal, a foodie by birth, a mother, blogger and a Home Chef. I have always enjoyed cooking as early as my teenage days when I used to help my mother in the kitchen. But, it is only after marriage and thereafter living abroad with my husband, I came to realize my passion for cooking. I quit my 6 year long career in marketing, communications and journalism to be a full time mom. It was my husband who encouraged me to start this blog and I can't thank him enough for all the motivation and support. The most amazing part about this blog is sharing recipes with the multicultural readers around the world and receiving their feedback and comments. My inspiration has been celebrity chef Ina Garten and her best-selling cookbook, 'The Barefoot Contessa'. I like to make Indian vegetarian recipes and love to explore the various cuisnes around the world. My motto is to live and enjoy life to the fullest and believe "there are many wonderful things that will never be done if you do not do them". So my friends, make the best of what you have with you currently and be happy always!!
