TOP 5 CULINARY COLLEGES IN INDIA

In today’s day and age, the limited streams and ever increasing competition in traditional avenues of education has given rise to a number of alternatives for students who have or are just about to pass XII grade. Alternative UG courses are the way forward as more and more institutions open up streams of higher education for all those who wish to pursue their own interests and passions as a career. Such streams are proving both comfortable and profitable in the long run for those willing to put in the required effort.

The demand for certified professionals is more than ever, as most organizations simply can’t count on raw talent. It needs to be tamed and nurtured. One such field which has seen a tremendous shift towards professionalism is that of culinary arts. More and more people today are focused on working and putting in the maximum time that can be spared. As such, a preference for food cooked by others has developed for most of the working class families. Since the demand is high, many are taking up culinary courses as their choice of career.

Making recipes and taking pictures are now -a- days always happened in my kitchen. My three year daughter always asking me to take photos before eating any meal. She is also inspired by my food photography 😉 , though it is not that professional way. Currently, I am using the iPhone to take pictures. I am not using any professional camera, but I would love to take pictures with a professional camera. One day I will use.

1st blogging anniversary

When I started my blog, I was a bit confused regarding how to tackle with technical issues and designing but few of my office colleagues helped me out in this technical issue. My office friends always motivated me to try new recipes and help me a lot. Another person is my husband. He is most critics for recipes that I have made in the kitchen and he is the sponsor of my blog and my costly hobby.

I have also started monetizing my blog slowly and steadily. I had started guest post also. Yes.. I am quite happy with the way I got responses and critics from my viewer and reader. Comment on my each blog make me happy always.

Thank you all to support me and love my recipes. This always motivates me!!!  I hope it brought you a healthy dose of pretty insight into my creative journey as a food blogger! And again, thank you so much for being here. It truly means the world to me!

thanks
