I am quite excited to have a cool Bombay gal on the blog today. She’s a talented business analyst, photographer and cook who inspires us to no end with her photos and small gatherings. Bombay as a city has been one of my nests and Anita captures its soul through her clicks.
I also do monthly foodie meetup for my Facebook group “Crave Cook Click” which focuses on food, photography, culture and travel. The idea is to promote learning and sharing of each other’s expertise.
HOW DID YOU GET YOUR START IN FOOD STYLING & PHOTOGRAPHY?
Photography was my second love, needless to say first was my husband. When I moved to US and was not working, camera was my only best friend. Then I started cooking too. When I started clicking food I realized that isn’t it the best subject..its so colorful, vibrant and the best part it doesn’t move
I started learning about food photography online. Followed work of many food bloggers and professional food photographers. Food network became my favorite channel Whenever I learned/read about any new food photography trick, I used to try it in my upcoming blog post.
SAY I AM VISITING FOR THE WEEKEND, WHERE ARE YOU TAKING ME?
Life in “Bombay then” and “Mumbai now” was like a dream. The fast paced life, soothing breeze at the chowpatty, lip smacking street food, romantic rains, travelling in local trains, dramatic bollywood, the beautiful marine drive(queens necklace), the historic gateway of india, smashing night life/clubs in south Mumbai, happening suburbs of Bandra, celebration of festivals, cricket craze, spirit of mumbaikars..trust me i love everything about the city. It’s very difficult to choose one thing.
If you are visiting for a weekend I would surely take you to Bade Miyas. It’s a late night eatery in South Mumbai and Haji Ali Juice center for best Sitaphal cream at Tardeo. If you are in Mumbai then you should definitely try the vada pav and chaat. Shree Krishna Vada Pav in Dadar is the best and nothing beats Juhu Chowpatty for chat. You can read the below 2 posts to know more about the amazing street food and life in Mumbai Mumbai Times and Street Food of Mumbai.
