An Introduction

A consultant by profession, wearing multiple hats from economist to digital media strategist and F&B consultant. Full-time epicure (vegetarian) and writer by passion. New mummy. Bombay by way of London. Keen on art and travel, with a penchant for pretty handbags.

Now that we’ve got the introduction out of the way, let me tell you more about this Foodie’s Diaries – a curated collection of recommendations across food, travel and lifestyle.

The Foodie Diaries™ is where I chronicle my insatiable culinary quests, sharing my latest discoveries  (from new favourites to hidden gems) in London and Bombay (the two great cities I’m proud to call home), and wherever else my wanderlust takes me. You’ll also find plenty of Kitchen Inspiration here, with tips, tricks and recipes shared by your favourite chefs, restaurants, food writers and of course, me!

Of course there’s heaps else to explore – from discovering comprehensive destination guides through my travel diaries, to diving into the high-octane world of art, fashion and culture with my lifestyle guides. As a new mummy I’ll be penning my Baby Diaries too, in the hope that other mothers can relate and benefit from sharing our experiences!

I just hope you enjoy reading these pages as much as I love writing them for you.
