Born in India and now living in Chicago. Food is celebration for me. Indian foods are not only great in taste but have a health factor related to it. Indian food and spices are not only tasty and flavorful; they also add a lot of benefits to our health. I have tried to take advantage of herbs and spices and infuse the American and Italian lcuisine. It is sort of East meets West. My dishes are easy to make and everyone can do it. Just come on and join me in my kitchen. We will have a lot fun! I use a unique mixture of Ginger, Garlic and Tumeric (in equal parts) with peppers, like long chilli spicy, habernero even Ghost peppers. It is potent and healthy. Dont't live to Eat, Eat to Live. Worked at Chefluciano's Restuarant in Chicago for 30 years. Now I am retired.
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.
I'm relatively new to the cooking thing. These are a collection of recipes gathered from family and adapted from books as I experiment and learn along the way.
