Hi, Thanks for stopping by. I am Alka, Blogger Photographer, Food Stylist, Recipe Developer and the driving force behind this blog. Here, I share my passion for home cooked food and commercial assignments which I capture through my lenses . I am a self-taught cook and a Photographer who try to create magic with everyday cooking.
Besides having a full time job, I started this blog to share my passion for food, travel and photography since 2014. Being a Blogger, Photographer, Food Stylist, Recipe Developer, my style of cooking is fairly quick and simple to follow and make. It ranges from simple everyday meal, menu for casual entertainment, experimenting with various ingredients to come up with mouth-watering dishes and cuisines around the Globe.
As a Blogger, Photographer, Food Stylist, Recipe Developer ,I normally cook with locally available ingredients available as per the season. kitchen is the best place where I like to relax , find a sense of tranquility . I draw my inspiration from people around me and try to translate all those memories into food to dive into. Blogging has not only given me an opportunity to try various modern recipes but also our treasured traditional ones which I would not have attempted otherwise overwhelmed by the complexity of these recipes.
I express myself through my food and photography . Blogging has helped me coming out of my comfort zone and try out different cuisines. Being a food lover I try various kinds of cuisines.I relish anything which is tasty, I don’t mind a roadside eating experience to a fine dining experience in a good restaurant just that food should be tasty.
Passion for cooking has also sharpened my other interest that is Photography. I love taking pictures of my creations almost as much as I love making it .Food styling and Photography have helped me in expressing myself through my culinary creativity. Currently I’m using Nikon D3200 with 50mm 1.8 D prime lens. I have been using natural light for photography. You can see some of my Photography work here.
