About This Site


Welcome to Fun and Food, and thanks for dropping by! This is your one-stop destination for all your cooking needs, and no one says you cannot have fun while cooking! That is precisely the motto of this site: To enjoy yourself while cooking good food, and spreading the joy of culinary bliss!

The Inspiration
This site was created as an outlet for my passion for food, cooking, having fun, and sharing my knowledge with people. Everyday you come in touch with something new and exciting in the culinary world, and the chef inside you craves to take up the challenge and create something marvellous. But cooking should never be just a "chore"; it is fun and adventurous, and no matter how things go, your aim should always be to create something you and the people around you would always cherish. That's the idea behind Fun and Food. We are ready to serve you the best, and our recipes range from the basic to the most drool-worthy varieties, something for every chef, be it a novice or an expert. We care a lot about health and fitness, and have a separate section dedicated to Healthy Recipes. The sections about Restaurant Reviews, Kitchen Appliances and Gadgets, Chef Biographies, Health and Travel contribute to the Fun part of the site, so that there's something interesting and helpful to browse when you are not in the mood to cook!!

The Author
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, I am an Indian living in USA, and hence have the advantage of being exposed to several traditional and fusion styles of cooking. I think of myself as a "Self-proclaimed Expert Chef", who dreams of having her own restaurant some day. I live with my family and work as a Software Engineer(yeah, need a stable job to pay all the bills, you know!). I manage this site to cater to my passion for cooking good food, and to help others do the same. Besides Cooking, I enjoy travelling, adventure sports, reading, writing and singing. I happen to be a Featured Publisher on "FoodBuzz", "Well-Fed Network", and also write free-lance articles every now and then.

Mansi Desai said...

Nupur/TBC,

On paper even I haven't changed my name...but we still connect to them and embrace him and his family, right??

Times have changed, but feelings haven't:)

thanks for visiting my blog. I loved your recipes on the openeing page. Infact the photos were so tempting. I am wondering, you must have had a lot of parties to get you off on a dessert roll :). I am fond of making desserts, but never got to do many after my children. Anyways, i have subcribed to your blog, so i will be a regular visitor. Thanks for sharing the recipes. I can see a lot of effort has gone it.
