A Fight Against Plagiarism and a humble giveaway results.


Recently,  I started cooking and writing about Kamalabai Ogale’s book Ruchira. My aim is to cook each and every recipe she has put up in her book and rise to the standards she has created. I am so much hooked on to this book now that I am creating and collecting my work inspired by Kamalabai’s recipes at one place on Facebook called as Ruchira Videshini. I had an event on my food blog about Marathi Cuisine. This is to bring in a revolutionary thinking in bringing Marathi cuisine on every table around the world in a modern way and to fight plagiarism which is an issue which every blogger fears of. This of course is possible only when we create within the frameworks of traditional cooking but with modern thoughts.

I am so excited about the Giveaway!! Mehta Publishers are giving the three books and Neha Dandekar has helped me choose the winners for this giveaway:)  Neha Kaku is such an active lady. I wish I can stay as active as her. She has participated in cookery shows of different Indian Television Channels like ETV (Marathi), SAAM TV and in Weekend Mejwani- Shodh Sugranicha, Mejwani Paripurna Kitchen, Sugran, Khadya Bhramanti.

She conducts classes for Saree draping in different forms, Salad decoration,Flower arrangements,making different types of Vide(Betelnut leaves), Managalagauriche khel(festive games). If that is not all, she supplies Chirote to local sweet vendors and her average sale in a year is 150kg per year!!

She is an excellent judge for cookery and food shows. She has been judging both in Pune as well as outstation. I am so very thankful to Neha Kaku for helping me judge the giveaway:)
