Food Matters was a site that I ran from 1995 – 2007. 11 years. you may remember it. it really had been around for a long time. it was a blog before blogs were created. unsupported by technology

it was the album of my life, cast in food and recipes, from the 1990’s. and, yes, it had a bit of a cult following. and thousands of recipes, all personally cooked, mostly in my own kitchen. during that time I began to explore Indian cuisine. it has developed into a life time passion

in August, 2007 I finally closed that site and entered the world of blogging. there are now other sites called Food Matters. not related to me or this chapter of my cooking and food writing

life has changed, and now there is not so much time for food and writing and cooking and cameras and all of those delicious things that used to cradle my world

as life goes on, time becomes shorter. but maybe, just maybe, I can squeeze in a minute or two to share with you some of my new and old recipes and many of my new thoughts

i hope that you stay and let me cook for you. Eat well. Stay healthy. Enjoy.

aum shanti
