My connection with good food began with my mother's cooking who loved to try a lot of vegetarian recipes from across the world and I would then be her taster. Cooking began only after I started with my family. Cooking with fresh ingredients always refreshes me. I keep looking out for interesting recipes by reading or watching and reinvent recipes with ingredients that I have at hand and like to call it "Inspired cooking". I personally believe that 'Food which makes someone happy and brings smiles is the best food'
