வணக்கம்   नमस्ते  ਸਤਿ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਅਕਾਲ। Ola  Hello

A Warm welcome to my space where I pour my hearth & heart adventures. I currently stay in Trichy (Tamilnadu, India )

Who am I :-

I am Priya Sreeram - Chef, Recipe Developer, Author & Photographer of this blog. An enthusiastic foodie, who loves to experiment with a variety of  cuisines and constantly seek to bring a fresh twist to classic recipes. Born in to a Tamilian family, raised by the most wonderful parents and adored by my little sister Suchitra (who incidentally blogs @ Flavors), my world was eons away from kitchen & cooking. Now a SAHM for my 2 kids, I have put my career  in accounting & finance on hold to bring them up. Getting back to work is an option in the future but I have no regrets with this longgggggggg sabbatical. I also blog at Straight from my heart which has our travel footprints and some random musings.

Why this blog :-

My affair with the apron & knife began (10 yrs ago) after marriage and it was not a happy start. Anyone who knows me well will remember me as the person who did not like cooking. Even making tea was a huge task for me & everyday cooking was a challenge. All changed slowly and steadily when I truly learnt that the way to my man's heart was also through his stomach and from then on there was no looking back. Fortunately or unfortunately my hubby who is from the Hospitality field encouraged me, stood by me and bore the brunt of my cooking disasters during the earlier years and is my critic these days. 

The food blog which happened at a time when I had a few very turbulent storms to weather was also instrumental in turning me in to a decent baker. The blog chronicles my growth as a chef, food photographer & stylist and most importantly as a person.


I am blessed to have a loving,wonderful and supportive spouse who is my back-bone. My 2 little dumplings - our Joy & Pride make my world perfect !

Contact me:-

I would love to hear from you all ! Do you have an opinion about my blog, any suggestions to make it better or you simply want me to float on clouds by praising my work - feel free to contact me. I also review restaurant, product and books.
