About Me

Welcome to Krithi's Kitchen..!!

I am Krithika, an Indian currently living in the United States. 
A software engineer-turned-home maker, foodie and cook. 

Why this Blog?
I was introduced to the food blogging world by my good friend Denny. I had been a regular reader of her space and few other blogs for the past couple of years but never thought would write one. After working in the IT industry for nearly 7 years I decided to take a break since work was getting kind of monotonous and it was cutting in most of the family time. Being at home was a different experience which I enjoy but trying to keep myself occupied was really a challenge. I had a lot of time at hand and wanted to make good but also an entertaining use of it. I started this food blog because I thought it is a great way to record my recipes along with the traditional ones passed down by my family. Though I started cooking at an early age of 15, I really wasn't into full-fledged cooking until after marriage.  

What keeps this blog going?
My family. 
My DH is a great foodie and had always been very encouraging and supportive on my ventures. He never really thinks twice if I need some time to shoot some food pics or to buy any food props I need. He shares his thoughts on choosing props for a dish and gives ideas to try something new if my blog recipe index is missing a style. My little 2 yo is an adventurous foodie and tries everything I make. 

Camera and Photography
I love my camera Sony Cybershot DSC - H20. It is a regular point-and-shoot camera. The feature I enjoy most is the built-in gourmet shooting mode which is great for clicking food pictures. 
I am an entry level learner in food photography and my key learning is, a good natural light is THE most important thing for good pictures. I try to take my pictures in broad daylight (not directly under sun though :)).
Since December 2013 I own a Nikon D5200 SLR. I have come a long way in food photography since I started this blog but I am still learning.
