About Me

My name is Krishna Ravikumar, and I'm pretty much obsessed with food! It is one of the first things I think of when I wake up every morning :)

I love cooking, sharing food with friends, trying out recipes, reading cookbooks, checking out restaurants, sampling new flavors and lately - taking pictures of food!

I've stayed away from blogging for so long because I never felt like I had anything to say that others didn't seem to be able to phrase better, but I finally did start a blog. It was really meant to be about everything I love - food, the outdoors, travel, running, animals, books, the works! But I seemed to write more about food than anything else! Still, I was loathe to have a food blog - there are so many awesome ones out there already ...

And yet, here is another food blog!
The single biggest inspiration for this blog is my fellow gastronome - Bindu. She and I have spent many many hours in many cities eating, drinking and making merry. And even more hours in the kitchen working a recipe, nursing our wine and waxing eloquent about the world at large! And now she's back in India and we don't get to indulge in our culinary jaunts anymore. So, I'm doing the next best thing - writing about the food we both love, hoping this is a new way for us to share it. Maybe this'll even be mildly interesting albeit entertaining for others who stumble upon this blog.

Obviously, feel free to send comments, ideas, recipes to
