What's Cooking Today is all about recipes that are curated from different sources in my experience of food - books, television shows, friends, food blogs, Pinterest, Facebook, this list could go on. For the most part, the recipes are from a source close to my heart - my mom's handwritten recipe book - complete with it's smudges of turmeric and with pages that barely hang on by a thread.My intent here is to capture some of the old memories, as well as the momentary pleasures, that we continue to receive from this food. I want to recreate the same experiences in my kitchen and then share it with family and friends on the World Wide Web. All the recipes are tried, tested and tasted by my team, which is my family. Create the experience in your kitchen as well and remember to let me know how you enjoyed replicating my recipes. When you write back, don't forget to include twists or turns that you used to suit tastebuds, cooking style or available pantry stock

    A decade ago I started cooking during my bachelorette years. That was survival. Then I met my finicky husband with an insatiable hunger for perfecting dishes. Together we took our family meals and perfected it. This blog is our experience.

    A Chartered Accountant by profession and a passionate foodie. I was born in a family of foodies. I learnt cooking from my Mom and then later on, from my sister. I believe one of the key ingredients of a good recipe is love and patience. Being a working mother I know the importance of time and therefore I try and keep most of my recipes simple and quick. There is nothing better than a simple home cooked nutritious meal. Each dish has a related story, memories to share- Kitchen Fables

    Hey! I'm a super busy mommy to 3 year old mixed gender twins. I guess that's enough said about the amount of time i get to spend cooking :). Most of the food I cook is about saving time, but not compromising on flavour. My biggest supporter is my hubby, who loves trying out new recipes and experimenting with different flavours. We love entertaining friends, and our home is the usual watering hole in our gang. So we try to come up with some innovative, fun food. Hope u guys like them!

    Everything is better on a full stomach. I cook when I am happy, tired, depressed, anxious, and it always makes my day better. And we always have people over, and it gives me plenty chances to keep trying out new recipes.

    Since my pre-teen days my brother & I’ve been experimenting with food that started all the way from Maggi noodles to choco brownies & anchovie pickles these days. These recipes represent a lifetime of learning’s from my mom, wife, magazines & my grandparents.

    I cook because I love to eat. It's really as simple as that. Fortunately for me, I married a foodie (who happens to be a much much better cook than me). Fairly early in the marriage I realized the best way to avoid ego clashes about each other's cooking was to make things Karan had no expertise on. And thus my tryst with baking began. Today, I can't imagine a life without my oven, maida, butter and sugar :)
