Welcome to Mumbai Food Diaries – A written record of the food adventures from a passionate writer.
I come from a corporate background where I worked in the IT industry for seven years. For obvious reasons, life was hard. As my responsibility was to manage projects and mentor teams, working 12-15 hours a day was normal for me. However, there were two things which always made me uber excited: food and writing. Coming from a family of great cooks, the passion for food is in my genes. I have always loved exploring the versatility of our country in terms of food, and now I would like to put it down in my words. I started food blogging with a recipe blog in 2011; however, with a hectic professional life schedule, I could never focus on it.
When my husband got a great opportunity in Mumbai, we decided to move from Hyderabad. He and I are risk takers, and we like coming out of our comfort zones; hence, this bold move came into execution in mid November 2014. That was the time when we landed into this iconic city Mumbai, and then, I made one of the biggest decisions of my life which was to take a break from my professional career and capture the diverse food culture of Mumbai in my food diaries. In hindsight, this turned out to be my second best decision where the first one was marrying the love of my life.
My story does not end here; in fact, it has just begun. My amazing journey of exploring this city of dreams resulted into this blog known as Mumbai Food Diaries. This blog is my written record of my food experiences. This is my journey to understand the food culture in Mumbai and to write about the same in the most authentic manner. Being a full time food blogger, my focus in the interim is to convert my passion for food and writing into a profession, which includes understanding and creating appropriate avenues.
It is never too late to work on one thing which you are destined to do. Thank you so much for taking out your time to read my monologue
