Dido lives & Cooks in Germany. A prompt and compelling foodie, who existed appreciating  gourmets in India for 2 decades – from restaurants to dhabas to roadside food etc.,  But not long ago, for 2 years now, Dido has been experimenting  her cooking skills (?!?) and penning them down through a blog. Her better half is an awesome cook himself, which is one of the things that made Dido’s heart melt for him..sigh.., – she being a foodie. So here you are at Dido’s blog… When a foodie starts cooking… can it get any better?

Cooking is a long evolving trait in human existence. Recipe processing and plethora of permutations of ingredients mark the complexity of human intelligence. The same dish, with identical settings, cooked by two people never taste the same, coz all of us have been bestowed with a idiosyncratic glint of our hand, be it a grain of sugar more or a hint of spices less, or more sauting, less grinding and what not… So flip thru and feel satiated…! This blog goes out to u mom..
