IMG-20150108-WA0076

“I am a foodie” and there is no doubt about it. My love for food in my earlier days motivated me to pursue a career in the food industry. Over the years through my profession, I have been introduced to a lot of cuisines from different parts of the world. My craving for food has triggered a new found hobby in me i.e. “Cooking”. I enjoy every minute spent in the kitchen producing traditional and fusion dishes from around the world.
I have a simple motto in life “If you can eat it, so can I” and this has led me into experimenting with a lot of common and exotic ingredients in the food industry.
The photographer in me works on the creative presentation of the dishes, that I produce in my tiny kitchen. My peers used to always say “what looks good, tastes even better”.

Come join me as I unfold my delicious memories of food with you starting with Authentic Goan cuisineย  …..

    Hi Alves, I was sent a link to your site by Jessie from Canada, I will be thanking her for this, I love your site. Please tell me are you Goan, your recipes look very interesting. I would love to try them out. I was looking for bebinca, which is why I asked Jessie and she sent me the link so I probably will try out that first. Thank you.

    Thanks for the recipe, it was fantastic, it reminded my husband of his time in Goa, reminiscing of the good times. Any chance you would have a recipe for Prawn samar curry, some call it samarachi code, my grandmother used to send us the spice mix and all we had to add to it was the coconut juice – milk.

    Thanks
    Shirley

    Hi Alves – love your recipes and have made quite a few of them. I follow you on Facebook too. I wonder if I may suggest making the recipes printable easily? The photos are lovely but make it difficult to print the recipe and a lot of cutting and pasting needed. Thank you
