About Me

Hello friends,

A warm welcome to my cozy space in the ginormous web world. Am glad to have you  her for the first time or as a regular reader of my blog.

Am Shella and Food is my lifeline!! If you ask me, I live to cook and eat, and then cook and eat again!! I love being in the kitchen concocting dishes, blending flavours and adapting cooking techniques. My guru are the innumerable food shows from where I pick up cuisines and techniques and then use them in my own space. Along with that my teachers are the people around me – my mother, my mother in law, friends and relatives from whom am constantly jotting up recipes and tips.

If you wish I can talk about cooking and other food conversations as long as one can endure!! My friends wonder if I have nothing better to do….they dont know what it is to be this crazy about food.

Another passion that completes me is writing. Its almost like painting pictures with words and I utterly enjoy being in that state where my mind looks at a certain situation or landscape or person and starts picking up words creating a picture. It is deep and all encompassing. This site is named on my first Book “Life and Spice” which was inspired by my husband, who has stood like a rock supporting me and encouraging me to do what I wish to . In my book each dish is linked to a memory or a story sporting that dish. In short, its not just a recipe book, its a book about ramblings and recipes. Hopefully the book should be out very soon, and by the grace of God, it certainly it wont be my first and last one.

I love travelling and seeing the world.  Every masterpiece of God is a witness of his might and creativity, which comprehends beyond anyone’s imagination and never ceases to fascinate me.  I love visiting places and experiencing culture and people and jotting it all down in my travel notes.  Its amazing what a beautiful world we all live in.

Above all the above passions come the priorities of life “my beautiful family” – waiting patiently for photographs to be clicked before they can lay their hands on food, collecting platters and paraphernalia for me. My little darling who is as enthusiastic about food as I am, and which secretly makes me so happy. My mothers who are sharing every tip and every recipe they have come across anywhere, enhancing my knowledge. Above all, they are my best critics. Last but not the least, my adorable husband whose pride in my work makes me work with more zeal.  He’s the best husband a girl would ask for.

I really hope you will enjoy going through the site as much I love posting my creations. I welcome you once again with some delicious dishes and a journey to my life, my world!!!
