Hello Everyone, My name is Latha Kishore and I originally hail from Bangalore or Bengaluru in Karnataka India. I come from a mixed background, my Dad being a Teluguite, Mom being Tamilian and myself being raised in Bangalore I have been lucky to experience the diversity of the three South Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Also having lived a short time in the North my cooking is very much influenced by both the South and North Indian culture.
Born and raised in what is a Foodie’s Paradise i.e Bangalore, I developed a keen interest in cooking when I was pretty young. I lived in a joint family during my growing years and with a household full of women, the action was always in the kitchen! My grandma was eternally cooking and dishing out some traditional fare, while my more modern mom and aunts explored the world of jams, marmalades, squashes, cakes, cookies and several other non traditional delicacies. Back in those days I really wanted to do catering management for a major and somehow the idea never took shape and my culinary experiments stayed limited to my kitchen at home 🙂
Here I am today in USA, the land of opportunity..working and juggling with home, work and kids just as everyone else. I have 2 girls who are just a joy to be with. My family and my friends are my strength as I go through this roller coaster journey called life.
This blog is more than just a food blog, it is a glimpse into all of my life’s experiences and all the wonderful stories that I like to share. Also not to mention the forum where I get to share the pictures I take, amateur I confess, but all the same fun ones 🙂 All my recipes here are tried at home, some my own, some from my family – mom, grandma, aunts, cousins etc, some from friends and some from other wonderful food blogs out here in blogosphere. Food blogging has taught me so many things and has got me in touch with people from all over the world who share similar likes and interests! It is my outlet to the creative side of the brain!
Hope you enjoy my blog and recipes. I look forward to hearing from you. Happy Cooking.
