I wanted to take an opportunity to thank all of you who have have liked my recipes, encouraged me to do better, inspired me and honed me to be a cook that I am today. I started my culinary journey 4 years ago with a very basic skill set but with the help of my family and friends I learned how to appreciate different cuisines, the different aromas and spices as well as the skills needed to make them. I began this subtle dance with cooking with my blog on Tumblr and today 4 years later, I am proud to say that I am launching my own food website!
It has always been a dream of mine to launch my own website one day and I am very excited to realize it and share this dream with you all. This journey has been very enriching and I have had some amazing experiences while putting this together. This website is my step forward to achieve bigger and better things in the culinary world and as always I would love for all of you to be a part of this journey.
While, this dream was solely mine, I have to give credit to my amazing husband Sushruth who stood by me and encouraged me to develop and pursue this passion of mine. Along with being a great partner in life, he is also my man for all the technical support to get this website up and running. Another key person who has been a part of bringing umamikitchen.co alive is Sowmya. Sowmya and I took few classes together while I was pursuing my MBA. Being from the same city in India we got talking and clicked instantly. She comes with a rich background in online advertising and shares a great passion for social media marketing. She is the woman behind all the creative writing here so you gotta thank her for all those crisp one liners you come across in this new abode!
Along with my recipes, you will also find my food photography portfolio. During this culinary journey, I realized that the appearance and presentation of the dish is equally important as the taste. And so, I started experimenting with food photography too! Today, I can confidently say that I have come a long way from where I began and I feel proud to share my portfolio with you all. I would love for you all to share with me your comments and suggestions on how you like them and what you can suggest to make me a better photographer.
Thanks again for being the amazing friends and subscribers you have been so far. I look forward to continuing our journey together!
