  • Experiences of a gastronomadBy Experiences of a gastronomad

    An organic chemist. A daughter, a daughter-in-law. A sister, a sister-in-law. A wife. A friend. An avid traveler. The journey more relevant than the destination. An amateur shutterbug. A diehard admirer of Indian folk art. Midnapore pat, Rajput miniatures, antiquated Tanjores make my day. A passionate cook. A wannabe recipe revivalist. And you may say I am a dreamer, I do believe in angels, something good in everything I see. And before I forget, I do write this blog on soul food, sweet nostalgia and random musings :-)

    “Until I discovered cooking, I was never really interested in anything.” ― Julia Child This aptly sums up my singular passion for cooking.Since the age of 10 when I realized that stirring, chopping, cutting, smelling and tasting is what gives me pleasure.

  • Sundari GiriBy Sundari Giri

    Hi, welcome to my space on the blogosphere. I am the human behind all the kitchen experiments on Ladles and Spoons. The blogging bug caught me pretty late in life though dabbling in the kitchen was always kind of a stress buster for me. In spite of a full time job and a family to take care of, trying out newer recipes and cooking was like a hobby that energized me immensely. I am a herbivore and you will find vegetarian recipes, from around the world, here. Come let's cook together.

    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.
