Like they say...."food is a spiritual channel for love" - I am a firm believer and practitioner of that. I love to invent new recipes both traditional and continental and give them my own twist . Food has always been my passion as I grew up in a family that owned restaurant businesses. I always invented my own ways of making it more healthy and appealing while maintaining its original taste. My mantra in life is simple - "There is no sincere love other than serving healthy and tasteful food to your loved ones".
