Foodie Software Professional.

#edesiadiaries
I work as a full-time software engineer in San Francisco Bay Area and enjoy the technology focused work to the fullest. I’m a foodie since my childhood and find cooking very therapeutic. At this point in life, I don’t know whether I’m more of a software engineer or more of a food enthusiast. Only time will tell!

#bombaytobayfoodie
Bombay (now Mumbai) is a culturally diverse city and known as the culinary landmark of India.  The diversity is totally reflected in the culinary richness the city offers. There are countless flavors and cuisines available to explore in Bombay such as Parsi, Maharashtrian, North Indian, South Indian, East Indian (Bengali), Gujarati, Muslim, and many more. The city is also famous for its street food that offers complementary & contrasting flavors from sweet to spicy and texture from crispy to soft & creamy. 

Here is my attempt to bring the same diversity of cuisines and tastes in my recipes and make ‘edesiadiaries’ a digital culinary paradise for foodies like me.

#multitasking
Multitasking and Multithreading need not be limited to software. Delicacies posts on my Instagram and the blog are solely cooked by me, including preparations, actual cooking, plating, presentation, pictures, and articles. I manage time for my passion, along with a full-time tech job, which is quite demanding. Unfortunately, I don’t get time to click pictures and post all my daily cooking, as I also like to invest my time in honing my technical and soft skills. 

#battle
I find balancing between the job and my passion for cooking easier than a decade- long of struggle and many health battles I have fought all by myself. I wouldn’t say that the fight is over, without going into intricacies, it’s under control and going to be life-long. I am glad that God blessed me with the strength to fight against all the odds. Reminds me of Khalil Gibran’s quote, ‘Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.’ I carry two huge surgical scars on my body and a few emotional scars on my soul. 

#sharing
Life is short. I want to reach out to people for sharing my experience, traditional, fusion, healthy & innovative recipes, and nutrition information (not advice). I am looking forward to your support.
