About- Me Myself and foodie

Smita's Cookery

 Julia child said "You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients" . My grandmother was just like her. She taught me the techniques of cooking when i was 13 that included buying fresh produce from farmer's market to how to cut, when to add spices and what utensil to choose for cooking.There were no written recipes because she said that once you know the techniques, you can be as creative as you want . 

I am Smita Chutke , and welcome to my blog. Cooking for me is an art. You have freedom to explore and experiment with variety of foods. I hardly remember following a recipe and using measurements. I grew up eating fusion of Marathi and South Indian cuisine as my family tree extends to these regions. My style of cooking is mostly  based upon the flavors from these regions. On my cookery blog you can find all the food i cook, eat and share along with ingredients and cooking techniques without measurements.   

Cooking Class


Cooking social- Do you and your group wants to relax and dine with me ?  I bring all the ingredients to cook, delicious snack and my famous Chai to your kitchen. You can watch me cook, learn and hang out with your group all at the same time. This is a very casual. 

Cooking class-  A pinch of my finger is a teaspoon and handful is measuring cup. If you want to learn the techniques and basics of traditional Indian recipes then this is for you.  Check the schedule on calendar for my upcoming classes or contact me if you are interested in organizing a class at your location.
