About Me

One of my fondest memories as a child is sitting on the kitchen counter watching my mother cook. 
Hi, I am Akshay, I am a Software Engineer by profession but a foodie at heart. I am in love with food! I enjoy the explosion of flavours on my taste buds and am always ready to try different cuisines. One of my fondest memories as a child is sitting on the kitchen counter, watching my mother cook. But as I travelled for work, I missed the tastes of home.
That was the birth of the Simply Simple Cooking YouTube Channel & later this blog.

Experiment

I am in love with food! I enjoy the explosion of flavours on my taste buds and am always ready to try different cuisines. One of my fondest memories as a child is sitting on the kitchen counter, watching my mother cook. But as I travelled for work, I missed the tastes of home. And so began long phone calls home, noting down recipes followed by weekend experiments in the kitchen; some notable successes, some memorable disasters! But I learnt. And as I learnt the art of cooking on those long Sunday afternoons, I started adding a twist of own to many of those recipes.

Share

As my cooking improved with time, I was bold enough to share my end products with my friends. Many of my works were met with appreciation. I soon learnt that food shared with good company tastes even better.

Enjoy

Over the years, the piles of my recipe books have been transformed into my YouTube channel, which has now been augmented by my full-blown website. I do all this because of the sheer pleasure I get in doing it. I am not professionally trained in the culinary arts, but well, neither was my grandmother, nor my mother! Cooking belongs to everyone. So come, celebrate food with me.
