About Us

Dear Reader,

Welcome to our little kitchen, filled with sweets, spices and wonderful tales! We’re so glad to have you here. My name is Preeti and with my husband Gaurish, we’ve embarked on this delightful online adventure of exploring culture, heritage and delectable food.

We love to explore different parts of the world and the cuisine that’s unique to every place. Trying new dishes and incorporating a variety of novel flavors in our food is what we enjoy! This blog is our way of sharing our culinary adventures with you. We add a unique story or literary reference with most of our recipes. For, after all, the best meals we’ve ever had have comprised delicious food and great stories.

We’ve set our stories in the early 1900’s. Through our stories, we celebrate love, life and a rich, flavourful cuisine that’s steeped in history and culture. Our stories are entirely fictional, inspired by childhood tales, local legends and books on Goan culture. Our recipes are inspired by our families as well as cookbooks and other wonderful blogs.

We hope that you enjoy exploring our food adventures as much as we do. Feel free to grab a cup of tea and read through our stories, cook up a lovely meal and celebrate life with us. Welcome to The Storyteller’s Kitchen!
