Budding blogger : Srivandhya

Meet Srivandhya of Vegetarian Zest blog in the Budding blogger series

Here is what she has to share with all ..

Hi readers,

The Vegetarian Zest is written by me, Srivandya Anand. I have degrees in Economics, Education, and Information Technology. Don't ask how that came about - it just happened. After slogging in many IT organisations as a content writer, I decided to quit and became a freelancer. Husband’s work brought us to Johannesburg, South Africa and since then I’m enjoying my life being at home.

I’m obsessed with food. Not so much with eating but more with cooking. Both my parents love cooking and seeing them I started cooking at a very young age. Mom always encouraged me to make my own sandwiches when hungry. Even today if my dad comes up with a yummy experiment, he shares it with me.

Apart from cooking, I like to check new food stores, go grocery shopping, buy storage containers, and check new recipes on internet. Also, I love to host dinner parties for dear friends and family.

‘Vegetarian Zest’ was born as a food journal and for learning food photography. I’m still in the latter phase. In each post you’ll find a story. I prefer to tell you where and how the recipe came or who passed it down rather than the techniques behind.

The recipes you find on my blog are put together with care and lot of passion. I usually get my recipes from my parents, magazines, internet or friends. Some are even found accidentally. All the recipes are tweaked or modified to suit my taste. As the name suggests, this is a vegetarian blog so you’ll not find any meat or chicken preparations. I make sure that my family eats healthy and fresh and in that spirit I buy high quality ingredients, fresh produce of veggies, and organic products… even if I have to spend extra.

Long story short, please do come by every now and then to check on new posts – I would love to see you around. Your feedbacks and comments are always very much appreciated, I can also be contacted via vandya.foodie[at] gmail [dot] com.

Bon Appetit !!
