My Recipe books My Inspiration

My cooking has mainly been inspired by these books which were gifted to me earlier in life by my Sisters, Mabel Dias (Prashad), Zenia Machado (Khana Khazana), Sheryl Newnes (Heart healthy & Low fat cooking).  My close friend Viola Netto gifted me The East Indian cookery book soon after my marriage and it served as a perfect guide to my meal preparation as a new home-maker. My note-books contain precious recipes shared by my Aunt Prescilla Fernandes and my neighboour Irene Vaz. Am not sure if they would remember sharing their recipes with me but I certainly do.  Some of the books are in tatters just proving how much they have been used!

My Recipes My Inspiration

Today, I acknowledge their contribution with a grateful Thank-you!

My collection of cookery books, some gifted to me, some purchased, not very many in my treasure….

I do watch cooking shows, time permitting and my favorite Celebrity Chefs/shows to name a few, are Vah Re Vah Sanjay Thumma, Khana Khazana Sanjeev Kapoor, Tarla Dalal. I have many of Aditya Bal’s recipes from NDTV Goodtimes. I enjoy Fatafeat, especially Take-home-Chef Curtis Stone, Jamie Oliver, Julia Child, Nigella Lawson..love the way she seduces the food on her show.

I am still learning to cook new and interesting foods, something which I will continue doing for as long as I can!
