It has been seventeen years since my first visit to India as a young tourist, but never in my wildest dreams did I think India would take such a significant part of my life. I lived in Pune for several years and still visit every year. I visited every large city in India. Mumbai is my favorite, and feels like my second home. I love the urban vibe - street food, high-end restaurants, Bollywood, contemporary art, shopping ranging from the busiest markets to luxurious shops, the nightlife.
While away from India I manage to keep in touch by organizing events and parties for Indians working abroad, participating in Bollywood dance performances, maintaining a Bollywood dance class for kids, and of course cooking Indian food. (Some of these activities are also good opportunities to brush up on my Hindi!)
It was Indian food in great restaurants that made me passionate about cooking in the first place.
One of my formative experiences was meeting Jaya, a professional and gifted cook, in our hometown, Pune. Jaya was (and still is) a great mentor, and even though I have continued studying and experimenting with modern Indian food forms for the past ten years, I learned all the basics from her. We used to roam the Pune markets together or eat a restaurant dish and reverse engineer its ingredients to cook it ourselves at home.
When I visit a place in India, one my first plans are always culinary - restaurants, food markets and street food. One of the initial facts I learned is that Indian food is affected by regional, cultural and religious diversity, and that there's an entire philosophy behind every dish and cooking style. There is no universal way to make any dish in India. My wish is to introduce the rich, urban and vibrant Indian kitchen.
Since India has thousands of miles of coastline I choose to focus on seafood as well as Maharashtrian classic vegetarian cuisine.
