  1. “I love to be able to cook for myself. Nothing beats the satisfaction of turning out an exquisite meal that everyone is pleased to eat or a delicious lunch and then have something sweet at its side, and then you just need to whip up some snacks so everyone goes back for more of what I like best. If someone doesn’t agree with it, don’t worry. I will have my own opinion and tell them it’s all theirs, but only after they’ve eaten”.

    I am not going to write about her favourite food everytime, because life brings me changes. But sometimes I was wondering about those dishes she likes. Some dish she cooked and others, her parents cook with. When my mum first cooked a Bengali dum (a Bengali style vegetable curry) and I got addicted to it. Though I liked Bengali cuisine when we were little. And it was very common, every family used to make different styles of bengalyans. There were simple ones, there’s also the sophisticated one’s with a lot of spices and things mixed into it. So one time as a kid I asked mom why dad did not make us…
