Hello my name is Binjal Pandya! I’m a Gujarati but originally from the beautiful city of Mumbai, India. I have traveled a great distance from home and now residing in the beautiful state of Pennsylvania, USA. It has been quite a journey for myself, wonderful Husband and two of the most amazing little people in my world, my beautiful daughters Riddhi and Maahi, who are “My biggest food Critiques” ?

I’ve been very fortunate to be raised in family business all of my life. I represent four generations in our family business and doing my very best to continue my families legacy. As a child raised in a single parent household, my mother had given me all the tools necessary, which –I feel- was pivotal and so much more than what was afforded to most children surrounding me at that time! She’d given me every opportunity to fulfill all my wishes and exceed even my greatest expectations. She is the biggest inspiration and -by far- the most influential person and woman in my life. Without her strength, perseverance and loving care I am nothing! She’s taught me so many things and most importantly how to survive, how to achieve, how to stand tall apart from the crowd as an individual, and how to become successful in any path that I would choose. So I am dedicating my blogging successes to my guru, my inspiration, my motivation my Mom.

Now, just a little about myself, I have achieved a Master’s degree in commerce (M.COM) from Mumbai. After 12th grade and obtaining my college education I was completely submerged in family business, so there wasn’t much time to do some of the things that I loved and enjoyed doing. However, through all the studying and hard work there’s always existed a strong desire for cooking. So whenever time permitted, cooking is what I seemingly found myself submerged in. I began cooking various styles of food for my entire family inclusive but not limited to my grandpa, granny (My Mom’s parents) and my cousins. They were my first food critiques prior to marriage. However, it wasn’t until I met my husband and was off and married that my real journey and experimenting with cooking began. Living with my new parents I cooked every day, breakfast to lunch, lunch to dinner and everything was prepared by such a special person, yours truly, Me!
