About Me


Welcome here, I am Tara , author of theeatgallery.blogspot.com. 

Little about me 

I am  from "Alleppey" in the southern most state of India called "Kerala". Moved to the United States 8 years ago. Though initially we were like migratory birds, as we moved  different places ,am glad that at present we have made our small nest now in a very beautiful place called - Salt Lake City. I am really sad that I am unable to update my blog regularly ever since I started working but I have no plans to end blogging and have decided to continue learning to organize my life and attain a stable work-life-hobby -balance.Amen.

Very inspired from my sister in law who started a blog out of her passion for cooking, along with motivation from my friends and  a little of knowledge I received through my most preciously attained degree in food science, drove me to start a blog.
I have to write about My Achachen (Dad) here...Am not sure if cooking and love for food comes with one's gene as my Dad was a lover of good food.He was the first person who inspired me to love food and cook with passion. He passed away few years  ago after being diagnosed with Cancer and I had a life changing experience during those last days with him, while in his deathbed , his words wasn't clear he asked for some fish curry and Kanji (Rice porridge) and I served him fish without permission from his Doctors, few memories which never fades.
 I am blessed to have a food lover / critic as my husband, I love serving food to those who enjoy it , love watching them eat and always happy to hear constructive criticisms which helps everyone to improve. And we are blessed with two daughters,

A 9 year old helper of mine who's another tough food analyst and a fuzzy eater and a 3year old.
I was taught that MAN IS WHAT HE EATS , I believe it too 
so lets eat healthy and enjoy the good things that God has given us in this life.
