Hi. I’m Deepika Nandal, and I run this blog. I’m extremely passionate about authentic, simple, fuss-free food. My native place is Jaisalmer, and I grew up in Surat.
It breaks my heart, every time I try to make my food ‘look good’. My mum never did so; she just fed us good food. But Instagram-worthy food has become a trend now; and I try hard not to follow these trends.
I’m a freelance journalist, and a mum. My articles have been published in the Hindu, Gastro Obscura, Reader’s Digest (website), Better Homes and Gardens India, New Woman and more.
Here, I share food stories that are close to my heart, and random stuff that I feel I should write about. Recently, I started an interview series called Taste Memory Talks.
My mother and my mother-in-law are my biggest inspirations, and I want to pen a book about their food. But that will happen when it has to happen. Hope you enjoy reading my blog.
