There are times at home when hubby dear is out of station and it’s time for others to relish their favourite treats in his absence as he’s very dominating about his likes to be on the table always. In such an occasion, my gal always asks for a few starters, a salad and a soup to be served for lunch with no main course. This salad also was made on such a day where she was craving about a creamy based salad that she had in a restaurant in Coimbatore with fruits and veggies mixed together . As she was just describing to me about the salad beside me in the kitchen, I started prepping getting an approval at each stage from cutting the fruits and veggies to boiling the veggies to the creamy sauce put together to the finally mixed salad. We do make a great team as the salad was pitch perfect bringing in a lot of cool breeze to the hot summer table and tasted exactly like what she had at the restaurant. Now have to mention about many of my recipes being used in restaurants and leading chefs demonstrating my recipes on the telly…. I know , sounds wired… As I had to pinch myself to check if it was happening in reality. I feel humbled first but it’s a good sign to show that we home chefs are not bad at all isn’t it ???
