About Me

Hello everyone! A very warm welcome to my Food blog!! 

So you want to know a little bit more about me, huh? Okay then…Let's get started!

I'm Jayanthy Kumaran, originally from India, I now live in Dubai, UAE with my fantastic husband & two gorgeous kids. I studied Masters of Philosophy (M.Phil) in Chemistry and worked as a Lecturer in College. My husband is my Cheerleader & Love of my life!! We are best friends without a doubt and he has been the best part of my blogging journey from the get-go! 

I officially started my food blog Tasty Appetite in October 2009 with the intention of creating an online magazine featuring healthy and easy home-cooked recipes with easy to follow stepwise photographs. I wanted to inspire my friends and readers, with the simple click of a mouse, they can prepare something wonderful in the kitchen. 

I believe in "Wellness starts from within." I am fiercely passionate about creating recipes that are fresh, seasonal, mostly healthy, simple to do, and sometimes peppered with a hint of herbs mixed in! I'd love to share the valuable traditional recipes, which I learned from my Mom, Mil & Grandma with the future generation. I love experimenting with authentic recipes and readapting them to easily doable modern meals, with a perfect blend of tradition and modernity! My goal is to inspire food lovers to make these tasty healthy dishes at home. No dish can go wrong if you have got the right recipe, tips & guidance to understand the process!
