About Cannelle et Cardamome-Mauritian cuisine and beyond !

How it all started

I love cooking ! This, since I was probably 7-8 years old when I first started my culinary experience in my grandmother's kitchen. I would follow my grandmother in the kitchen and watch her every moves while she made intricate dishes such as Biryani. As I grew up, the passion increased even more and then I saw myself doing food photography of all the dishes I made. I am inspired by many celebrity chefs on TV. Anthony Bourdain being my most favorite, I also love Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver, David Rocco to name a few and of course Julia child !

I have been planning to blog for a very long time but never got to it. I have always posted my food photography on Facebook . It was easy and quick. No matter how much my family and friends told me I should have a blog I kept postponing ......out of laziness. However, recently I have been going through a lot of food blogs and have been amazed by the incredible blogs out there. I was finally motivated to have my own . I thought I could just upload the pictures I already have and everyone would have easy access to the recipes on the blog itself.

So, Happy blogging to me and I hope you all enjoy my site . Visit often and share ideas ! What you will find on this blog is a lot more than just Mauritian cuisine !
