Hello and Welcome to Plate to Palate!
My name is Jayanthy Asokan (my friends call me Jay) and I write this blog.
I’m from the state of Tamil Nadu (India) and have lived in various places of TN as well as its neighbouring state Andhra Pradesh.
Growing up cooking with my mom gave me the opportunity to learn some of my family’s traditional heirloom recipes, I’m very happy and proud to share those unique comfort food recipes here with great honour.
At times I get inspired from others recipes and would try it out. I love French desserts and have great passion for baking. I started this site to feature my Indian and International home-cooking and baking ideas.
I’m married and a mother of a married son who live on the other side of the planet. He’s my lifeline, an ardent fan and critic of my cooking and baking experiments. We bake together whenever time permits. I’m so proud to say that my son is well trained to cook for his wife now . I thank my husband for his backup and support to start this blog. My friends are my constant critics of my recipe and food photography, which helps me a lot and improve my skills. My family and friends (motivation) are the reason for me to start this site.
I also love to spend time with the challenged / special need members at a nearby organization, listen to music, watch movies, craft Tanjore paintings, travel around and network with friends and relatives.
Hope you like my recipes! If so, please try it out, leave your comments and feedback, which means a lot to me.Also please share your signature recipes, send it to me, I will give it a try when I get a chance .
Thank you so much for stopping by !
