Ananda hails from Hyderabad in Southern India, traditionally a land of Nawabs and Kings. The cooking is very much influenced by Moghul cooking which has its own distinctive traditions and flavours. Her story is typical of Indian family heritage:
“I spent my childhood in a big joint family where food was a central part of life and learnt to cook from the very young age of ten. My parents are my leading inspiration, combining their passion for great flavour and their zest for providing fantastic food for guests. Hence, the culture of ‘Ananda’s Gourmet’ is about pleasing the palate and satisfying the soul.
I have a passion for cooking and over the years loved spending time in the kitchen and was ready to experiment with various ingredients, mixing and understanding the spices. I give utmost attention to picking the right kind of spices, which add a distinct aroma and taste. I played around with various dishes and believed in traditional methods using fresh ingredients making the dish authentic and flavoursome.”
From my kitchen to yours….
“I want to give an unforgettable experience of mainly Indian food, which is influenced by different regions of India. I want you to experience the taste of my kitchen in your own home. The recipes offered by ‘Ananda’s Gourmet’ are the ones that I learned from my Mother, Grandma, Mother-in-law and other sources , which I developed and refined over many years. It gives me great joy in sharing the rich tastes with you all.”
