Grandmoms at Work!

We all rely on cookbooks, cooking shows on television, and wisdom passed down from our grandparents. Of course, the braver would try new things in the kitchen, recalling the successes and mercifully forgetting the failures.

Nowadays, many food blogs offer delectable recipes, helpful hints, and beautiful photos, tempting us to head straight to the kitchen or the supermarket. Hundreds of culinary blogs are available to entice your taste buds. But of course, we cannot get close to the precision in the art that our elders have when it comes to cooking. Grandmas express their love by cooking delicious meals for the whole family — as it is for many grandparents.

Cooking was an inherent talent. Most of the time, friends appreciated their cooking and made me ponder the possibility of taking it up as my profession. When the farm stay was started, it helped convert their culinary skills into a full-fledged kitchen for the farm stay.

Every day, Lakshmi and Kasthuri amma feed entire families visiting the farm stay with finger-licking, modestly priced, exquisite meals that leave their taste buds fulfilled and tummies purring with happiness, leaving them wanting more.
