Hi! I’m so glad you stopped by.
My name is Heena and this blog is my playground for everything related to – you guessed it – food, travel and photography.
The short of it: Engineer-turned-Pastry-Chef (Ferrandi, Paris). Blogger. Dreamer. Traveler. Mumbai-Toronto-Paris-Mumbai. Sharing my adventures through words and photographs.
The whole story: I grew up in Bombay, India – a veritable melting pot of cultures and my job as an analyst (yes, you are allowed to yawn) gave me a unique opportunity to travel, which in turn opened my eyes to new experiences. This blog was my way of sharing those stories until it became a lot more.
I took a good hard look at my life one day and realized that this is not where I want to be. While I sat in front of the computer analyzing business flows, all I really wanted to do was bake and cook and travel. Someone told me once that life is a matter of choices. If you want to live, choose. So I did. I spent the next year learning the art of pastry and bread baking at ESCF Ferrandi. I am now a professional pastry chef looking for my next adventure in my beloved city of Mumbai.
To say that I love food – cooking it, eating it, sharing it – would be an understatement. In fact, one friend once commented – “You know what’s amazing? That you don’t weigh 300 pounds given the trance-like state you go into simply thinking about food.” (Thanks buddy!) I love exploring new places and trying new cuisines, and as much as I love food, it is the stories – of people and places – that inspire me.
You can find out more about the story of this blog, why I started it, and answers to questions like – what on earth is a tiffin? – here…
I hope you’ll join me in my adventures as I start and share a new phase of my life.
