About Me: Kanan Patel

A little story on How I learned cooking
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 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.
You will always find fresh ingredients in my cooking. I try to reduce the use of processed and ready made canned stuff in my cooking.
I, hubby and kids 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.
