The Team so Far @ Kitchen Rings

Sheetal

The “Chief”blogger, cook, photographer and odd-job person for Kitchen Rings! Passionate about hoarding anything connected with food and cooking 😃

Johanna

A perfectionist to the core and very logical thinker!

Meet the Editor and Co-illustrator in the blog. Having taken up this work, she juggles her time between college, activities, hobbies and muttering about how busy she is (And this makes her appreciate the main purpose of this blog even more!).

Normally a sweet person, she can turn into a dragon if she thinks the readers will get even one sentence that’s below the mark.

No mean cook, she can whip up an enviable batch of cup cakes, marshmallows or even marzipan in no time.

Suzanna

Our illustrator and artist is one of those people who has been nurturing her inborn talent quite literally her whole life. She picked up a pencil when she was very small and hasn’t put it down since.

Sunny, with good-natured sarcasm, she can spin a yarn and has ready wit to keep us in splits.

She can bring out the expressions and vibrance of her characters almost effortlessly.

This foodie can manage the kitchen with her eyes closed and casually serve pan pizzas, sandwiches and noodles!

My Food Story

My turn! I’ve lived in big and tiny places in India and learnt from the kitchens everywhere. Finally my husband, our two daughters Johanna and Suzanna (yes, they’re my daughters 😍) have now settled in the National Capital Region.

It is probably due to my background in microbiology & biochemistry that led me to be particular about what I eat and how I cook it. It’s been 25 years of  juggling my career and the home, with parenting and social activities thrown in. 🤹‍♀️

Among things that gives me a glow of satisfaction, is the fact that I have managed homemade foods for the family everyday.

Retrospection!

Thinking back, I know some meals I made were awesome. Because they were nourishing, soothing, aromatic and simply unforgettable food I am proud of.
Although there were also, I admit, some that were forgettable! 🤐

It is due to a combination of my curiosity and an adventurous family who ate all (uh..almost all😋!!) of my experiments, that I managed to stretch my repertoire in the kitchen.

Homemade food nourishes in a unique way

And it has also given me a chance to develop and perfect practical tips and techniques that will help any person, even a beginner, in the kitchen.

Though I am not a professional nutritionist or dietician, I have seen what works and what doesn’t with respect to food, taste and health. A combination of science, observation and experience has helped a lot.

Homemade is not boring as it can have both variety and health. But most importantly, ALL DESERVE HOMEMADE.

You may eat in the best of places and the food may be great. But still, in a ridiculously short span of time, your heart will insist on craving for home-cooked food.

The Evolution of Kitchen Rings

Our very first logo!

There I was, juggling my career in research and my household chores, when I took a planned break. It was to be around Suzanna while she prepared for the Board exams. In order to maintain my sanity (and hers!), I needed to keep myself busy.

Another fact about me is that I have been famous for walking up to even strangers to stop them from eating the wrong things 🙄 This is a trait that family and friends have had to put up with all the time!

Aha! This blend of timing and my interest clicked. Ta daaa! 😎 Thus ‘Kitchen Rings’ came into being, to follow my passionthat of helping people to eat what’s good for them.

It was just meant to be! So naturally, putting down the steps to the approaches I take in the kitchen has been fulfilling, to say the least. 💛

(Incidentally, my other passions are inventing healthy recipes, travelling, building awareness about dementia and old age, photography, gardening and also rummaging through jumble sales. Currently I am learning the Indian Sign Language to be able to contribute to the Deaf Community.)

Let’s Tackle the Kitchen Together

I would love to be a part of your kitchen adventures. Because I get a gush of happiness seeing others take the right step forward to eating great food. And making cooking a part of the daily routine.

Also, I know it’s MISSION POSSIBLE. As following a clear technique ensures success in both the taste and the health departments. Food is so basic that it needs our attention.
