About Me: Kanan


KananI lived in Ahmedabad and came to USA in 2008 as a student. I have bachelor’s degree in Bio-medical Engineering from Gujarat and master’s degree from Stevens Institute, NJ. Right now I am an IT professional in Pharmaceutical company. And with this full time Job, I happily managed to get some time for food blogging.

I started cooking when I came to USA. I have never entered the kitchen when I was in India. During my masters, I learned little bit of cooking from my room-mates. But still I was doing just OK that time because roommates were always there, so I never got chance to cook alone. But when I got married, I need to manage the kitchen by myself. To keep mine and dear hubby’s stomach happy, I started to learn cooking from cookbooks. I have read lots and lots of cookbooks (nearby public library has very good collection of Indian cookbooks). No, reading doesn’t end here; I have read tons of culinary books which explain cooking & food science. As I understand the food and how it works with other ingredients, I started enjoying it. And Now I can say that I know cooking and I can cook good food. But still learning is in process.


About the Food I cook and We eat:


As being vegetarian, I only cook vegetarian food and so this blog also has veg recipes posted. I have started using organic produce, food in cooking from beginning of 2013. So Now I have everything (almost 80%) organic in my pantry and fridge because I am not able to find everything organic.

You will always find fresh ingredients in my cooking. I do not use processed and ready made canned stuff in my cooking.

I and hubby eat all the food which I cook and post here on the blog. If I need to I freeze some, eat later. Sometimes he took it to his office for his co-workers. But we never waste or throw anything.
