Chocolates and Christmas are synonymous. The famous chocolate log has an interesting tale behind it. Large slices of wood to heat homes were lit in every fireplace; a fire around which the whole family would gather. During the nineteenth century, the wood fireplace was replaced with iron stoves. Logs of wood became ornamental, and some innovative pastry chefs came up with the idea of turning them into pastry logs. The chocolate icing looks like the bark of the natural log lit before. In Mexico, the turkey has a layer of chocolate on top while in Italy children receive pieces of chocolate from the witch Befana.

Until a decade ago, In India, food gifting was generally restricted to traditional mithai. But now, chocolate has become a go-to gift for every occasion because of its dependable quality, luxurious appeal, heavenly taste and eye-catching wrapping.

My writing was limited to school essays and projects for my kids and out of the blue, my writing career began with writing articles for the magazine section of a reputed national newspaper. I rediscovered my best subject at school and began writing with gusto. I had a weekend column in the newspaper which was well appreciated. I started off writing about Interiors and Gardens and later diverse topics like Fashion, trends, food and events in the city. Juggling my time between various jobs down the years and my writing, I have written content for fliers, brochures for colleges, speeches, social media content and also website content. I love writing and I am open to writing on a plethora of topics. My blog has some interesting insights into my life and travels but now it is mainly a food blog as I am growing organic vegetables and cooking my own produce is very therapeutic. Read my blogs to know me better. I write from my heart and what I write is what I feel... I feel a feel, A funny feel A funny feel, feel I! If you feel the feel I feel You'll feel the same as I!!
