When did you first get in to cooking and do you remember the first recipe you tried?
I started cooking only post marriage when food became something more than just take-out. I don't really remember the first recipe but I'm sure it was disaster.
But I do remember that for the first time I baked Banana Bread following Joyofbaking's blog. It turned out so pretty and absolutely yum that I immediately started pinned all sorts of baking recipes.
What's your kitchen like and how do you keep organized when cooking?
I have a very open kitchen with one side french window overlooking parts of Pune. Its bright and airy.
To keep things organized while cooking, I keep all the necessary things near my cooking range and lined on the cutting board.
Saves me time and energy of going through the drawers while cooking.
What tips would you give to someone wanting to become a better cook?
Only three things:
Follow you heart. That's your best cookbook!
Keep everything handy while cooking or baking. Mise en Place is real.
There is no substitute to Butter. True.
Who would you invite to your dream dinner party and what would you cook for them?
That would definitely be Dorie Greenspan and David Lebovitz.
Don't ask for the menu, I'd be too star struck to think any further :P
Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?
I don't follow any particular craft technique but I do love DIYing things for home and my toddler. I also love to read, not just the cook books ;)
Which cooking blogs do you love to read?
