About me

Hi friends,

I am Jayeeta Basu, a Bengali housewife with a passion of cooking. I have started the journey of an independent cook blogger in the year of 2014 with a penchant to explore different cuisines, vow to share it with patrons and exhilaration to enhance my repertoire. Since then, it has been an exciting journey through space and time which changed its course often. During the initial stage, I was staying in Europe and beaming in excitement to play with continental dishes, which undoubtedly shaped this blog in its formative years. Later, I shifted to India and got to know the plethora of Indian regional foods which gleefully started to occupy their space in the blog. On the top of that, my proximity to Bengali cuisine also pushed me to explore the hidden treasures which I tried to pick and place carefully. Over the years, with the unconditional support of my fellow bloggers and overwhelming encouragement of the followers, this blog transcends into a forum of vibrant culinary discourse, which I have not really dreamt of in the beginning. I feel now this blog is truly en voyage to the unknown shore with a band of inspiring boarders.

  1. Dear Jayeeta, I absolutely love your blog’s motto, yes indeed cooking can be a way to one’s heart as it can bring back such memories and feelings of fulfillment. I have also made a move from home recently away from family and friends, the food I cook definitely makes me feel at home, I hope you are adjusting and enjoying your new experiences, I look forward to your recipes and hearing about your new adventures 🙂

      As you wrote in your blog that you become a good cook because of your grandmother and mother of course, for me also they are the inspiration. Here, far away from India, I love to cook our traditional food and that’s how i feel home like atmosphere.
      Both me and my husband are very fond of non vegetarian food. I know Afghan foods are very delicious. I love to learn them from you. I hope you also settled well away from home. 🙂
