I was born in New Delhi, India and was raised by a large family of foodies! Since I was a toddler, I had a strong desire of spending all day in the kitchen. I watched my family members as they cooked and wanted to eat everything in sight! I observed my mom watching video recipes by one of her favourite chefs, Sanjeev Kapoor Khazana, and diligently taking notes. I also loved going out to eat with my family, experiencing new dishes and falling in love all over again with old favourites.

About Me

I arrived to Canada in August 2013 for university, and I'm now proud to say that I've completed my degree in Software Engineering! My passion for cooking stemmed not too long into first year, when I was really missing homestyle Indian food and restaurants just weren't cutting it for me! I tried to make butter chicken based on Sanjeev Kapoor Khazana's recipe for paneer makhani, the vegetarian version of butter chicken. Everything took off from there! gotta beat that record with 10!    


Hi everyone! My name is Anadi Misra, 23 years old from Ottawa, Canada! If you couldn't tell by now, food is literally my life, whether it's thinking about a new dish I want to make or thinking about the next meal or snack I'll be eating! I'm so excited when it's time to plan the groceries, diving my nose right into a great cookbook or look up a variety of food blogs for some inspiration.

I created this blog to share so many exciting recipes with you that will bring gourmet-quality meals right to your home! Not only that, I want you to see how fun cooking is! This is a place where us food lovers can interact and enjoy the experience together!

Through this blog, I'm thrilled to be sharing my culinary journey with every single one of you! Let's see where this road will take us!

I would love to hear your feedback

Meeting my girlfriend in 2014 gave me additional motivation; she would get so excited to try all of my new dishes and I've successfully converted her out of a picky eater! When I first cooked for her family, I remember very clearly they said afterward, "This boy is so talented and really needs to do something with that!" I went with it and got my first job as a sushi cook at a start-up restaurant in 2016. Later that year I got another job as a sushi chef and line cook at the restaurant where I'm still working.

At the beginning of 2017, I began posting my daily creations on Instagram, being encouraged by my girlfriend and sister. I began this website and my YouTube channel in the spring of 2017. I first wanted to share my recipes with the world because I found that there was very little good information online about proper Indian cooking. Then, it grew into a motivation for myself to always learn and to help others cook great food no matter the circumstances. I hope you all find my recipes helpful and tasty and will join me in my culinary journey!

The photo below illustrates one of my proudest achievements so far: Making 8 pizzas for a family get-together. It was intense but I did it and they all turned out lovely! Next time!
