Since :-1 Year
Why did you decide/inspired to start a food blog?
Food is one of the essential commodities for the survival of any human on this earth. Being a citizen of a country like India, we all can experience the diversity in terms of language, caste, religion, and traditions. But what binds us all is the love for food. There is a humungous range of food in the traditional foods which change according to the region. To add, India is welcoming all the different cuisines of the world in a plate here. Said and done that, I am aware that according to FAO, 190.7 million people were undernourished in India. Hence the name HUNGER NATION. To celebrate the privilege of having luxury food with a sense of responsibility regarding the hunger rate of the nation. With the power of digital media/social network, I realized that only such medium can justify my passion for food.
What do you think food blogging will look like in 5 years?
In the current scenario, the bloggers are used as a market tool by the hoteliers/PR companies. Presently, there are at least 10 individuals who are joining this field as bloggers every day. I see the future to be very bright for food bloggers. But I fear that the process of authenticity would be destroyed in large numbers of the bloggers.
Which part of blogging excites you most: the recipe development, the post writing, or the photography?
It’s difficult to answer this question. It is like asking a mother to choose from her children. All the three attributes play a crucial role in the blogging process. Not are they crucial only but all of them compliment each other.
