Asha Pagdiwalla of Fork Spoon Knife–
“Two years back, I swapped out of the world of high finance to that of the high heat of the oven, traded in the excel sheets and complex models for the precision science of baking and art of flavors and moved from penning creative investment ideas to creative culinary experiments. My quest to satiate my voracious appetite takes me on a culinary journey across countries as I try, test, repeat, experiment and master techniques along the way. I am most comfortable swishing around a little of this and a bit of that, while crossing my fingers (secretly!), waiting for the magic to happen. So far, it has worked and it’s been much fun sharing these experiences on my blog!!:) My work and photography can also be viewed at Facebook and Flickr.”
Denise and Laudalino of Chez Us–
“Denise is a foodie who’s first thought each morning is about what she’ll be cooking that day. Laudalino is not a foodie; he’s an eater and aspiring home chef. They met when he was a starving climber and bachelor who longed for his mother’s good Portuguese cooking. She cooked, he ate and eight years later, he still prefers her food to any restaurant fare. Follow their culinary capers in their 20-square foot urbacn kitchen at their blog, Chez Us.”
