Comeback


My last post was on the 26th of January. A bunch of my readers have reached out to me to ask why I am not posting any more. Some had even tried to contact me for specific advice on some of the recipes, unfortunately I was not even able to respond to most of them.

End of last year my dad came to visit me. He was supposed to spend 6 months with us. My cooking objective was to make a whole bunch of traditional Bengali food for him, stuff that I had already posted. That was how the initial blog silence began. Unfortunately on the 1st of April he passed away peacefully in his sleep. He was one of the main inspiration behind this blog and even his last meal was one I prepared. It has taken me a long time to recover and finally I am back and hopefully will continue to do what he would've wanted me to do. Share the joy of cooking and great food with everyone.

In-spite of my radio silence the readers have not left me. My blog continues to get great traffic and I am deeply grateful for everyone's patience. Thank you my dear readers!!!

Hello Somtapa,
Truly sorry to learn about your loss. I know nothing would compensate for this void, yet I hope you find solace in the fact that you got to spend time with your father during his last days on this earth.

I found your blog last year while searching for a good labra recipe and got immediately hooked to the stories behind each recipe, especially the authentic bengali ones. The stories bring back so many memories to me as I come from a similar background as you and after living in many parts of india now have settled in the east coast of USA. Also I find most of your bengali recipes to be quite similar to how my maa or grandma (when she was alive) would cook the same dish, may be because of our common east bengal heritage.

I was really disappointed to see you gone for so long and started to wonder if you would ever be back. I am so glad to see you in action again. Keep up the good work
Best Wishes
Moumita
