Story
Tagline
Whatever happens in my kitchen, stays on PreeOccupied!
Introduction
I cook because I care. I studied English Literature and Communications, and did Knowledge Management for a living. Now I have a nine to five job and three sole interests: food, rock music, and books.
Bragging rights
PreeOccupied is my personal space for a creative and culinary catharsis. I am a Bengali and pride myself in replicating some traditional Bengali recipes from my family. I cook because I care. PreeOccupied is technically a food blog, but more importantly it is cooking for friends and family, though certain times just vicariously. Predominantly there is a collection of Indian and Bengali recipes with stories and memories woven around them. It also has some world cuisine thrown in good measure. Few other things make PreeOccupied more special. Its your comments and feedback and sometimes just telling me how to better a recipe. I invite you to share your own food stories- memories from childhood, recipe feedback, restaurant reviews, travel notes, cookbook reviews, anything that can interest others in the true gastronomical sense.
