Some of us Bloggers are pretty close knit when it comes to visiting each others’ profiles, leaving comments, and sometimes just getting very inspired by one another.
I have my pet favorites too. People I have never met. But these same people are part of my Blogosphere. I wait for a post from them, to tickle my taste buds, to inspire me and sometimes just copy their recipes onto my own dinner table.
Meet Soma, a Mommy of two girls, living in Texas. She is the eCurry queen. Let me warn you, her photographs and recipes will increase your appetite sharply, often resulting in you heading straight to the kitchen to try her recipes. ASAP. Her energy shows in the way she presents her food.
Sharmila of Kichu Khon will mesmerize you with her endearing stories, food memories and simple recipes. Not to mention a very human side of her. I click on her Blog’s link every day to see what’s waiting for me there. Simple, homey, and very, very close to my heart. She can even make the humble lentil look like a bowlful of exotica.
When she wrote her Aam Panna story, the Blog world was full of recipes of the earthy green mango cooler photos and recipes. This is the power of Sharmila. She touches your heart from her kitchen.
Sandeepa, the quintessential Bong Mom needs no introduction if you have been around looking up on Google for Bengali recipes and food fiction. She is the uncrowned diva - inspiring, infusing, and creating a revolution with her posts. I have often wondered is it just me who is smitten? The answer is a loud NO.
He is a man and he cooks. Too bad he is taken. That’s Kalyan “Bourdain” Karmakar. The local foodie from Bombay who is taking the world by storm. His tweets, photo journalism, and travel bytes are a picker upper. Kalyan of Finely Chopped makes liberal digs at his friends, and laughs the most at himself.
Kalyan is currently travelling but you don’t miss him much. Why? Because you travel with him and see things through his lens. My favorite man food writer, second only to Tony!
