Meet the Chef 🙂
“People who love to eat are always the best people” ~~ Julia Child.
Well, can’t argue on me being the best or not, but yet, I consider food to be the noblest job of all – be it making or serving.
Hello Peeps! Welcome to my blog. My name is Chahat ( My friends call me CK,Chikoo, Chiya 🙂 ). An IT professional & a free spirited, fun loving person, living in Montreal, Quebec ( Canada ) and I pretty much love and appreciate everything that I see or live.
Cooking: My ultimate passion
Cooking is my passion because when I am cooking (for self or my close ones or anybody), I enjoy it to the core. Well, probably more than just a passion, its like meditation for me. It helps me relax, rejuvenate and oh well “remain calm”. The sweet colorful sight of fresh vegetables, playing with all kinds of heavenly spices, smelling the luxurious aroma of fresh bakery, there is not a single thing about food that makes me unhappy. But the most admirable thing that I find about food is, it isn’t affected by any race, region, religion, caste, creed, or sex for that matter.You like, you eat, there is no digging on the whereabouts of the dish. That’s how I found my extreme love and respect for cooking and serving. If you love cooking as much I do, we have loads in common and if not, then I hope I change your mind 🙂
Why this blog?
Its Chahat’s style 🙂 : Adding that personal touch is very important to me.
Use of simplest ingredients easily available in any local superstore or an Indian grocer.
Quick and simpler way of cooking.
The uncompromising taste.
Best of all, even though I’m born Punjabi , it doesn’t really affect my food. I can make Punjabi tadka (Indian seasoned and tempered spices), just as simple and delicious as I can make South Indian lip smacking chutneys. And currently, I’m trying Italian and Mediterranean as well. I have no sarhadhs (boundaries) when it comes to cooking. “Because the recipe I follow is “passion” (smiley)
The name “Gorge & Serve”:
Gorge : Being Indian, I’m a hardcore desi food lover, just like everyone else.I love Indian street food, shaadi (wedding) dinners, Diwali/Holi sweets and desserts, home cooked brunch with friends and family. But staying so far from my home country, I miss those moments but it doesn’t stop me from trying out those interesting delicacies at home. Sometimes, when I cook something really good, me and my friends cannot help ourselves and that’s when we keep hogging till the the last drop. Yeah! (victory sign)
Serve: I consider myself a really good host and I take great pride in that. My friends love it when I’m hosting a dinner party or just celebrating with wine. Nothing can replace the happy faces when I see when I serve home cooked food. So the whole “food service” thing is kind of a big deal for me.
So here I am to share with you some finger licking, super easy, delicious recipes that you can enjoy at home.
So let’s escape to a better world of aroma, taste and happiness…. Happy Cooking!!
