Hudson Valley Restaurant Week 2011: Meet Guest Blogger Rinku Bhattacharya


Hello, My name is Rinku Bhattacharya.

I love food and sharing food experiences with people and keep a blog, Cooking in Westchester.  I live in Valhalla, with my family 2 kids, the dad and the cat and work in NYC.

We are a fairly food obsessed family and have a passion for trying natural things around the area – food, restaurant, wine and cheese. I spend a lot of my time in the kitchen and my husband and kids spend time in the garden growing things in our little backyard. This keeps the supply of fresh veggies in abundance about six months of the year and challenges me to trying new ways of cooking with these.  When I am not cooking and have time on my hand I love shopping for kitchen tools that keep the shelves in my kitchen overflowing. I have a particular passion for choppers and assorted blenders.

I love the sense of community and action that all the posts around restaurant week generates on Small Bites, it is fun to read about the different experiences that people are having with the various restaurants and look forward to experiencing it again this year. I look forward to reading all the food experiences over the next few weeks.
