About Me
I am a self proclaimed foodie :) I love cooking for friends, family and myself all kinds of ethnic food and experimenting with fusing ingredients and techniques. Some of my fav cuisines are Thai and French and so many more potential ones I have yet to discover! Besides cooking I like wines, coffee, traveling, movies, playing tennis, swimming, running, gardening and volunteering and meditation.. in no particular order. I am from India and have lived in the US for many years now.

Samit was a joy to have at the dinner table; very knowledgeable about food, travel and culture! Hope to see you again soon, Samit!

It was a pleasure to meet Samit at Myrna's Filipino brunch meal share … he was super friendly and has this happy and positive vibe about him that's totally magnetic. :) Looking forward to sharing another mealshare with Samit in future!

It was such a pleasure meeting and hosting Samit. He was one of the first guest to arrive to the brunch, so we were able to have a nice conversation with Samit and few others before the brunch began:) I look forward to having him over again soon!

Sharing a meal with Samit was excellent! He is so friendly and easy to connect to. Hope to run into Samit at more meals!
