A LITTLE ABOUT MY SELF
By Ronel Naidoo-
I am a young South African Indian woman who has been married for 12 years and have a wonderful family. I was born in the beautiful city of Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal, in the year 1984, and later on re-located to the city of Johannesburg, South Africa, in the year 2006, to start my career and family.
My passion for food came from many aspects and people in my life, mainly my late grandmother. Since a little girl, I have had a love and passion for food. I would spend most of my days in the kitchen with granny wanting to learn everything including keeping track of her recipes so that I would never forget them and even when she was no more I would still be able to prepare them just as she did for many years...From then until now I have gathered great information, knowledge, experience, creativity and a talent for cooking.
I wanted to create cook books that would showcase many of my grandmother’s recipes so that everyone would be able to taste the delicious Indian foods I enjoyed throughout my childhood, and also still prepare in my home for my family and friends to this day. Everyone who has tasted my cooking or baking has surely enjoyed them enough to have asked for a recipe at some point, so after much thought and gathering of recipes, I finally decided to share them with the world.
Best Regards and Happy Cooking...
