About Me…

I am a wife to Pete, mum to Rudi and Aadi, step mum to Amy and Sophie, sister to Saloni and a daughter to Shobha and Navin. I am also a complete and utter FOOD NUT! Family and food go hand in hand for me. We all love food and most of us love cooking – it’s in our blood. I can’t remember when I learned to cook. It just happened, a bit like walking and talking!

I am heavily influenced by my Indian heritage and cooking this food comes as second nature. I have had a very varied and fun filled life so I am also influenced, and continue to be influenced by many different cuisines across the globe.  I will turn my hand to any style of cooking from British comfort classics to spicy flavourful Thai salads and curries.

Food & Family.

My grandmother was a fantastic gujerati vegetarian cook and my mother taught me how to cook Indian veggie and meat dishes. I passed on my love of cooking to my son, Rudi, who is a chef.

You will be hearing from my Ma and Rudi from time to time as this site is a celebration of family and recipes that you too can cook for your own loved ones.
