This blog is being co-authored by my mom Mrs.Shyamala Sivaraman & her best friend for over 40yrs Mrs.Gita Venugopal. Amma is 66 years young. She is a culinary expert & has been imparting her knowledge in various types of Cookery, Baking & Icing (the latter two being her forte) for 31 plus years. Gita aunty as I fondly call her is in her early 60s; prepares authentic Iyengar style cuisine and other vegetarian food. Look up for me on my profile.
