About Me

PeachyTales (2).jpgHello my sugah buns!

Warm welcome to the blog where passion and food sum up pretty much my life story.My mornings are basically waking up to the only thought of what am I going to cook for today. And during the day it will be gazing at food on the street while having other food in hands. Then by the night it will be endless binge watching of food series and constant drooling over food safaris somewhere around in this world. As you can see it turns out that food is the only thing that makes me alive! This blog is therefore, just a passionate diary of mine where I share my deep love for food and all the sweet reminiscence linked to it.

 Why PeachyTales?

Well why not PeachyTales! In fact it all started from Instagram really. I was always so intrigued at how people on Instagram would have such lovely IG names and I wanted to have same. I still remember how I spent nights searching for a particular name for my IG that will instantly ring a bell in my heart. Something a little unfamiliar, something a little weird and something that would definitely sounds like ME! And there it was, I found it!

‘’Peachy’’ is just an informal way of saying that something is ‘’attractive’’ or ‘’excellent’’. And ‘’Tales’’ as we all know means a ‘’Journey’’.  With time things bloomed in such a way that I don’t think I would choose any other name to portrait my passionate journey with food.

How did it all started?

I have been cooking since the age of 14 and at that time I never knew that food would in fact grow into my passion. I started from helping Mum in the kitchen as it was getting a little out of hand for her to look after everything. Then gradually I ended up abducting the whole kitchen space for myself by cooking for everyone at home. On weekends it will be experimentation time where I would recreate restaurant dishes. On birthdays it will be special menus and then on Christmas and New Year it will be a feast. Until my friends told me that it would be so amazing if I could write up about all these recipes on a platform. I was quite insecure really about the whole idea of blogging but now when I look back, it has been one of the most incredible thing I have ever done really.  Besides there is another beauty when it comes to home cooking. Everything can be the star of your plate really. All it takes is a little planning and some good amount of love, toss and turn it all and voila!

My little jewel island: Mauritius

I am born and raised in what I like to call as my little jewel Island, Mauritius. Because it is truly a little jewel found in the Indian Ocean. Everything about it is amazingly spectacular,the sea of an exceptional blue, the sand of an amazing white and the air always giving you the feeling of holidays. And Oh mine! The food is one of the richest culinary adventure that you will ever get on trust me. Exotic flavours, tropical tastes and all merged together is almost like sunshine on your plate.

Mauritian cuisine is an amalgam of different ethnicities which has led to a fusion of cultures into one dish. Taking bits and pieces from the Indian, Chinese, Muslim and Creole original cuisines, Mauritian food is a sheer pleasure to the taste buds of everyone. You will definitely remember the food anywhere you are really!

And this is how it has become my actual theme for the blog really. Because Mauritian Food is also about family , about love and about sharing in all its simplicity. Therefore I thought why not re create the dishes sometimes with a little twist of my own and revive all the memories that make it truly ‘’Traditional’’. I am sure we can all relate to the Bon Souvenirs once shared around the table with ‘’Ene bon Cari Poule’’ that Mum used to make! There is really no other purest form of love than that of our traditional GrandMa or Ma home cooking.

 Thank you

I would love to express my heartfelt gratitude to all my kind supporters and also to each and every one who is  there constantly following and expressing their love to PeachyTales.

I don’t think I would have gone any further without the love and amazing support of you all. You all contributed to where it is now and I am truly thankful and certainly beyond blessed for such an appreciation to what I do. It definitely helps to keep strong and aim even higher with everything.

So to all my beautiful supporters as well as to all those who take the time to comment , like and share, THANK YOU.

Let every bite takes you home!
