Spices and Seasons – Au Revoir


patatasbravasHi All, I write this post with some mixed feelings, as it is the last Spices and Seasons, post on this site, I am sad that we shall not be connecting through this column, as writing it on Mondays has been a good source of inspiration for me to start the week. However, it will help me make more time to post on Spice Chronicles, where you will still find all the stories and inspiration from my backyard.Can you believe it has been over four years, a fun journey that took us from cumin to rosemary, recipes from Keema (Ground Lamb with Green Peas) to  Ginger Molasses Roast Chicken and of course two cookbooks, The Bengali Five Spice Chronicles and Spices and Seasons, Simple Sustainable Indian Flavors.

An assortment of winter spicesI hope you will hope over to Spice Chronicles and continue to follow me there, Social Media is always fun, I am out and about on Pinterest, where I have my recipes organized by various categories, Instagram where you see my cooking as real time as it gets, Twitter and Facebook and if you want to watch my show and tell there is Youtube.

Thanks for all your support of this column and do continue cooking some of the recipes, I have cobbled together over the years.

All the best,
