Indian Chef
I'm a food blogger, food photographer and organic gardener based out of India. I enjoy cooking for my family using fresh produce from my vegetable garden. I love to try out various cuisines and perfect my cooking skills. I've always loved writing, so writing is something that I've always done. Food, on the other hand was something I definitely grew into. As a kid, I was the pickiest eater you could imagine. But eventually food started tasting good to me and it became something that I associate deeply with happy memories. My food blog Indian Food Pedia is a humble attempt at sharing my passion for all things food and you will definitely find a lot of Andhra flavor in this space, home-cooked meals I prepare for my family using farm fresh produce from my organic garden and our nearest farmer’s market. I have no formal training in food photography. Taking images of food is a learning process, a creative outlet for me and an enjoyable one at that.
