The commonest question I am asked is why have you named your blog as “The Mad Scientist’s Kitchen!
The simple answer is my daughter, Apeksha she was schooling and in her tiffin box whenever I put something that I cooked without a recipe or just put together this and that she was happy.
Like I put Reposting Franky or Wraps which is nothing but peas palak made up in a cutlet, or I made Cutlets with leftover rice. In fact, she came back with an empty tiffin box and a demand for more. Naturally, I was at a loss I did not remember what I did this happened regularly.
So she told me, “Mamma, please do not follow any recipe, please do the mad scientist’s recipe”! This stuck and she kept asking for more. So I had to make a journal!
Naturally, she named it “The Mad Scientist’s Kitchen!”
By this time tragedy had struck us twice, I had lost my Mother-in-Law at 4 Dham Yatra, Hrishikesh quite suddenly.
By the time we stabilised my mother who was suffering from cancer became bad to worse and we lost her!
The Vaccum was tremendous and I had started a blog for Recipes years ago as a tribute to the two greatest influences in my life, both my mum and mom-in-law, who were great cooks!!
The encouragers venture were my husband’s sister and my brother both are very comfortable with the virtual world.
