About Sonali Raut
Sonali Raut Co-Founder
Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.
I love to cook, read and travel (and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipes.
I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate… One that’s fascinating.
Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.
Cooking is something that began early at home for me. Being an elder sister to 2 siblings helped me brush up my party planning skills… I have been forever planning birthday and new year parties from the scratch. Be it planning the menus or cooking for the same. But I must say I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it.
Thankfully for me both my husband and son are die hard foodies who are ever ready to try out my creations or even disasters. They are my biggest critics and my favourite Guinea Pigs!!!
My hubby has actively been sharing my interest in cooking and forever egging me to try out new cuisines or even to replicate some recipe we tried and loved at some restaurant. So I get to eat at different restaurants and he gets to pay the bill!!!
Reading is another thing I am passionate about, it keeps me updated. I am a total bookworm; I can eat a book in a day!! I love collecting books, as much as I love reading them! So much so that I have run out of place on my bookshelf.
So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cuisines.
