Everyone is born with a passion, there are time to time hobbies but then there is only one passion in One’s life which takes around 8-10 years to actually burst out. My passion is food and travelling; especially food. I love travelling through world and collect authentic vintage recipes that expressly represent the wide and varied regions of any country. Cooking has always been a stress buster for me. My blogs are packed with the best of my home-made delicacies which will help you conquer the art and science of home cooking. All of my recipes are written in easy-to-follow steps. These recipes will help you plan not only your daily menus but also help you cook a splendid spread for parties. So far I have traveled around New-Zealand and India. Both of the countries have huge culture and a great food history and archaeology. Through these blogs I try to bring out the two lovely acculturation from the two countries. I’ll start off my blogs with a brownies recipe, its egg-less, fun and easy to make.
