Everyone has a unique palate and my reviews are purely based on my likes and dislikes. This blog reveals my lust for food, pictures that I own, food that I love, cuisines that I  tasted, imperfect culinary skills that I possess and to top it all this blog is my passion which doesn’t yield any monetary benefit for me. Each review calls out the history of how I ended up being at a particular place. Join Me in this culinary journey of comfort food, the rich and hearty meals, delectable platters,  distinctive recipes and savory Gourmet!



Gaurav Dharamwani,

Gaurav Dharmwani 

I am an adventurer, dreamer, marketer, musically inclined, traveler and foodie to the core. I believe food is one of the greatest gift from GOD. I have always believed in that theory and have been trying to improve my dining experience. I am learning to appreciate various tastes, and expanding my horizon. For me, a great dining experience will be something where the serving challenges the conventional taste and stamps its authority. Be it a lavish spread of a five star hotel or a plate from a road-side shanty, my taste buds should be able to experience every single ingredient in the serving and   the heart should always allure for it.

A lawyer by profession, a foodie by passion, I relish what all life has to offer. As much I like to explore new cuisines I like to explore new destinations. I believe in moving around as a traveller not as a tourist. Food is an inseparable part of every culture and reveals an untold story beyond what the history books have to offer. Food brings out the child in me and makes me curious as to how much legacy and brilliance has gone into making a dish as common as butter chicken or maybe a biryani, which are now just sold as a commodity.

Food-oholic, Eat-oholic or whatever you call me, i just love food!!! Learning about different cuisines and cooking them has helped me discover a whole new world, and it’s endless….Sharing it with all of you through my blog brings me joy! All for the Love of Food!!!! 🙂

Photography is what i do to destress..Right from clicking birds who come to my balcony for food and water, to nature, to the pets i board and of course food…its so much fun to click…click…click 🙂

Pets have always brought a smile to my face… My love for pets made me work for a couple of Animal Ngo’s and now i do pet sitting from home…Writing articles for dog blogs and magazines as a freelancer has helped my knowledge about them better. Cook…Click…Eat :))
