About Siri - The Author. Cook. Photographer. Writer.





Who is Siri?

I am Siri, a 26 27 28 29 30 31 year old, somebody just like you - passionate about food, happiness and life in general. :-)

What is CookingwithSiri is all about?

It was the summer of 2007 and those were the times when nothing worthwhile was happening in my life and 'food' gave me solace and embraced me...and asked nothing in return..It still gives me bountiful love and joy and this blog is a place where I try to share all that with you all :).

All opinions expressed on this blog are purely mine and are not intended to hurt anybody's sentiments.

What does she do for living?

As the day dawns, she works as a software professional at a Fortune 100 company and once the night falls, I become the Chef de Cuisine in her airy, spacious, sun-lit-kitchen, embraced by food that she loves the most.

Is this is a food-blog only?

Not at all..Yes, over time, I have started to focus more on cooking, food photography, event reviews, restaurant reviews and book reviews. though there are some previously posted non-foodie articles that you can take a look at - stories that inspirehumour, food art , articles and other non-foodie posts..

For a complete list of recipes published on the blog neatly categorized can be accessed here. And whenever possible, I do host various food-events and for the roundups done until now, click here.

How often does she blog?

I blog when I find a recipe that connects with me and talks to me.. when I dig into that first bite, my heart either skips a beat out of joy.. or at least brings a smile on to my face...when I know for a fact that dish will be made again and again by me..and hopefully by you guys too.

... this blog is my online 'diary-of-keepsake-recipes'.  Not every experiment of mine in the kitchen is a success, but as Tom Krause quoted - 'There are no failures - just experiences and your reactions to them.', so I keep trying..


Where does she get her recipe inspirations from?

...from everywhere - my own crazy ideas, cookbooks, magazines, websites, fellow bloggers, pinterest and sources of all kinds...and every time the idea/recipe is borrowed or adapted, it is duly credited to its original author.

Who is her guinea pig ..ahem ahem.. the lucky person who gets to taste everything?

That would my lovely husband, Mr.S who is a great connoisseur of food and next my mother who is THE most amazing cook and a not-so-easily-can-be-impressed food critic of my recipes. They can will have to eat anything and everything I make. and sometimes my lovely bunch of colleagues at work get to taste some of the goodies. :-)

Where do she want you to start browsing?

First of all, Welcome to my blog and thanks for taking time. I suggest you browse through the recipe index and see if you find anything interesting. And if you like the posts here, do subscribe to the blog feed , Like my page on Facebook and follow me on twitter..See you all there.

Just curious, any media mentions or places where your work was appreciated?

There have been a few moments during all these years of blogging where I was given a thumbs up for the recipes and work I published on this blog. They have been duly documented here. :-)
