Komal - Sweet & Masala

Komal, the foodie behind the blog:

Raised in Cambridge, England, I was born into a Gujarati family where food is central to family traditions. I was taught from a young age that travel is the greatest way to learn the heart of a culture; that truly connecting with people is best done through food. So as early as I could I started to see the world – first savoring the spices of India, the fresh simplicity of Mediterranean cuisine by way of Italy, France, Spain and Portugal, the indigenous and unfamiliar tastes of Australia, and the melting pot that is the U.S..
