Hi! I’m Belinda. I come from a huge family that loves food, and loves to feed.
A communications executive by profession, cooking has been my passion since I was very young. I started out by doing simple dishes like the traditional “potato bhaji” before moving on to the more intricate traditional ones and then experimenting with international cuisines. Over the years I have adapted many recipes to my own style of cooking, and developed many more of my own.
I have a simple philosophy in life. Nothing can go wrong with anything done with joy. And nothing gives me more joy than cooking – except of course spending time with my husband Mark who is my pillar of support and my son Mikhail who is the inspiration behind this blog. Mikhail, who is all of 10, also shares my passion for cooking.
This blog is my way of saying thanks to my mom and grandmom, who sowed in me the first seeds of this art, and to my ma-in-law who introduced me to a whole new world of tastes.
I hope you enjoy trying the dishes on these pages as much as I do. I would welcome any feedback or suggestions that you may have.
