This is a blog, this a website, this is my space where I learn, unlearn ask questions and give answers. This is The Yellow Turmeric.
The Yellow Turmeric was the name of my food blog which in retrospect was more of an experiment and less of an endeavour. Right after a degree in Food Science and a job that required juggling test tubes and analytical equipments in a lab, cooking was my way of unwinding. It still is btw. The blog began with gusto but soon went into the usual state of limbo that most blogs seep into. When I finally decided to shut that virtual space down, I was left with a few bad, “good food” images that I had clicked and an interest in writing about food.
Phase II of The Yellow Turmeric; Three friends, a pastry shop and a buzz to start something new. I won’t go into the details of all that we had planned, but let’s just say some things worked out and the rest were lessons for us. Before the end of this phase I had already signed up for a Freelance Journalism course through the London School Of Journalism and The Yellow Turmeric became the place where I would put things to practice and challenge myself.
Many of the things we jotted down on a used envelope in that pastry shop are no longer a part of The Yellow Turmeric. I did finish the course, and in the meantime, I also talked to some very inspiring people who are changing the way we approach our food and piled my bookshelf (continue to do so) with as many food books as possible. The Yellow Turmeric is now that space where you will find the “food notes” of this curious mind. I do not know if this Phase III. All I know is that the journey is what matters, and this space is here to stay.
