Namaste! Welcome to My Fancy Pantry!
Let me introduce myself. My name is Shari and I reside in the lovely state of Minnesota. In the city of Rochester, to be exact. I live with my husband, Piyush, and our two kitties–Penny and Harry.
Before I met Piyush, I was a horrible cook. My idea of “fancy” was throwing a pound of ground meat in the slow-cooker along with a couple chopped potatoes. If I was feeling really adventurous, I’d maybe throw a carrot or two in there as well. It’s true! My “crack-pot” creations were legendary! …and I don’t mean that in a good way.
Luckily for Piyush, that all changed. Once we were married, I started seeing food as a hobby instead of a chore–and that made all the difference.
I have also learned that I love unique ingredients. In fact, I hoard them! Lavender buds, black salt, homemade preserves, and probably every spice or masala you could ever need (Ever.) have a home in my kitchen.
I enjoy learning about food, making food, and eating food! I don’t discriminate (usually), but I do have a soft spot for a good, spicy Indian curry!
Aside from what Piyush and I eat, I hope this blog will chronicle our world trips and our adventures around India…
but it will mostly be about the food !
