Welcome to Sprouting Kitchen, my food corner, where we create food memories!
Cooking is my stress buster especially baking, it is therapeutic and relaxing to me. I love creating twists in classic recipes, you shall see that in some of my recipes. I also believe that some classics should not be tampered with.
Growing up in Mumbai, India, I spent a lot of time learning to cook from my mom. I have also learned a great deal of cooking from my extended family as well. Shortly after getting married, I moved to the bay area, California. That is where my passion for cooking grew even more. These days however we spend most of our time entertaining our little one, well he’s not so little anymore! When we are not at home you will find us out exploring nature either hiking or camping. We are blessed as our son is big on camping and hiking as well!! He will pick being out in nature any day over a movie!
Over the years, I have collected recipes from Family & Friends, snippets from books & magazines or recipes from TV & online media. This blog is the process of compiling all this in an online journal. It is also a way of sharing some of my food memories. Like all of you, I am self-taught and do have my fair share of mishaps and failed recipes. Well, we are all human after all! I will try to share all tips and tricks that I have learned with you in the recipes.
Thanks for stopping by… happy cooking!! Have fun creating your own Food memories!!!! – Mukti Patel (memoryminion), the cook and writer behind this blog.
