About Me - The Vegetarian Cook
+ This vegetarian recipes website

Hi, I am Nayana.  You want to know more about me and here it is. I am happy to connect with you through this vegetarian recipes website.

I was a teacher. I used to teach French (up to advance level) as a foreign language. I also used to teach Japanese (basic level) from home. Now I work with my websites.

Most of my students were teenagers and I loved the interaction with them. I learnt a lot from them.

I have always been a vegetarian and I love cooking. So Vegetarian Cooking is a necessity that I enjoy. I cook vegetarian food everyday. I have a big collection of vegetarian recipes.

I grew up where we had neighbors from different states of India. Each state in India has it's own special dishes. We celebrated many different festivals together and exchanged the special sweets, snacks and other dishes made for different occasions.

I also participated in the making the summer special items such as pickles, papads and other preserves by neighbors. I have fond memories of those occasions.

My mother is a good cook and I learnt the basics from her. But she prefers traditional food. I do love the traditional food. But I like more variety, trying recipes from different regions too.

So, after marriage I was happy to get my own kitchen to try out different vegetarian recipes and to cook up my own experiments.

I was also happy to get a new family to try out my experiments on. I cooked not only the recipes from different regions in India but also from other countries.

My husband brought back a few cookbooks from his visits to different countries. So I guess he likes my cooking experiments. My 20+ year old daughter is my critic too.

And then there is Goldie, the cat, who is not so keen on only vegetarian food he gets in my home, but has no choice in my vegetarian kitchen.

After some 30+ years experience of preparing vegetarian food, I have a huge collection of vegetarian recipes which keeps getting bigger as I keep trying new recipes and making my own changes.

Some of the recipes are in my notebooks and many more are not written anywhere but in my head. There are many new recipes that I want to try out.

I enjoy cooking and I like to talk, read and write about food. That is what I do with this website.

I enjoy sharing a meal with friends. As I wanted to share my love for cooking, what better way than building a website?

If not for this website, I would not have met you. And I am happy you stopped by.
