So here I am writing my first ever blog and on my way to becoming a blogger.
So what do I write on my first ever blog that's going to be published to the ever expanding world wide web I ask myself, hmmm... how about an introduction to who I am and what I am all about?
My name is Rajiv Deb (Raj to you). My love affair with food started from before I was born, it was embedded in me, it was in my genes you can say. My family and I are constantly thinking of food throughout the day, it's my culture, my genetic make up, my love, my passion and the one thing that has always been a part of my life that I haven't got bored of.
I LOVE FOOD! I love the smells, the textures, the colours, watching something simmering away in a pot or admiring the way some dishes are plated up and presented like beautiful works of art. I have got to say the one thing I probably love the most is sourcing fresh ingredients and visiting local greengrocers, butchers and markets not forgetting the good old supermarkets and the wonderful little ethnic shops that seem to be popping up in most towns now.
Food is not just about eating to survive, it's an event that sometime's takes weeks to plan and prepare, it's a medium which people use to bond and converse through.
