I never thought much about food until I had to start writing about it. Once that happened, I realised that perhaps the beat, softer than most, I’ll admit, needs a certain level of responsible reportage rather than raves about food porn. This is one of my favourite photos — from the many I’ve taken. It’s a bowl of fresh fruit — apples, papaya, mango, chickoo and banana — with plain yogurt, honey and granola. Linked to this is my first blog post for The Indian Express’ Talk Blog which is sort of a precursor, an explanation if you may, to how I plan to approach food — personally and professionally — from here on out.
