I love eating, and I will be honest in admitting it..and that’s how it started I guess. Slowly I entered mom’s kitchen and learned silently but quickly. About me, I am a certified Food Nutritionist, a self trained Chef today and I love cooking. Can you get up at 3am in the night and cook if asked to?, I can. My love to experiment with recipes from all over the world has appealed to my readers. When I introduce my little Twist to it to enhance the beauty and richness of the dish and its flavors, home chefs further like it. Cooking is like making love. Do it slowly, do it gently, you tend to enjoy it more. You end up with a happy face and a fine cooked dish. I could travel to the north pole to try something new and innovative to eat.
Over a period of time I learned to write about my passion of cooking. I also traveled to various places in order to eat. I guess I am good with words and expressing my thoughts. People started liking it and friends insisted on me starting an independent blog (that’s how the original fashionablefoods.net started and is now popular as UK Fashionablefoodz ). I realized I have a flair for writing when, a few years back, I was actually offered money to write and now I get paid often to write posts and invited to do reviews.
I love to try new ideas in the world of Food, Travel, Fashion and Fitness. All go hand in hand and these are the 4 subjects which I love to write about, though I have also written on other subjects too for the past 5 years. I do Content Editing and Proofreading, as they say when I am working. This blog had crossed the 1,00,000 views mark in the first 2 years itself, after which I never maintained a record of people viewing the Blog and the posts. I have my own reader base who love me, my style of writing and keep coming back to my Blog to read more.
I am lucky to be in an Era where Celebrity Chefs like Sanjeev Bhai Kapoor (who taught me to cook through his shows), Culinary arts specialists Chef Ranveer Brar, Chef Vicky Ratnani, Chef Ajay Chopra, Chef Varun Inamdar and Chef Saransh Goila along with the Michelin Star chefs Gordon Ramsay and our own Vikas Khanna always inspire me to boldly experiment with ingredients to improvise recipes which sometimes come out good, sometimes don’t. 🙂 Welcome to my world of eccentric Cooking, mad Traveling, Fitness mania and simple fashion. I hope you like it….call me Uttpal, Uttpal Krushna, Uttpal Krushna Khot or simply UK.. 🙂
