More about Simi Jois:
Twenty years ago, I would have never thought that the world of food, beginning with shopping for ingredients, cooking, visually capturing thru a lens, writing about it, will sweep me off my feet like it has done. Roughly, about 17 years ago I was doing my post graduation in marketing, I thought that was my world. After working for a few years, I realized it was not who I was. Writing media plans for companies, immersing myself in TRPs…was not me. Marriage…motherhood… changed my life. I did not want to miss a moment, translate that to stay-at -home mom. I would love to cook for my family, it brought me more pleasure than sitting in SWOT meetings all day. Cooking is more than mixing ingredients in the right proportion as per the recipe – it is celebrating the pleasure that food brings to our lives. When you share your food with someone, be it a family member or a stranger, you make a connection…that moment is priceless. It’s just not a meal you serve, to satiate your hunger, it’s more, it is something you can’t quantify or put into words it can only be felt. As I look back my most fond memories from childhood, have been around people and food. ( thanks to my mother, who is an amazing cook)So, with all the action happening in my kitchen, some successful, some miserable failures, I wanted to document them for my myself and for my teen, so if she ever needs one of my recipe, when she grows up, she knows where to look for it. One day, just like that, I had an light bulb go on and I wanted to start a blog, to document my creations. It was not easy to share my food and my memories woven around food with strangers. Thankfully, I have a very supportive husband who pushed me to express myself and to open myself to the world. It has been three years,since that day. I enjoy my little digital home – Turmeric N’ Spice. I love the community of people I have met thru the blog and the friends I have made. I love to challenging myself and I am learning everyday. I would not trade this for anything.My journey started with food, then blogging and now photography. I have always had a creative urge in me, never thought it would take the form of photography. Something I love to do, every single day, from morning till dusk. Light enchants me and capturing light has become my creative obsession. It’s hard for me to put down in words what I fell, I hope I can express it in my images.This is my little digital home where I share who I am and what I do best – bringing fresh food to the table – capturing food through my lens This is me and my blog is a true refection of who I am.
