The CityLifeStylist in the Kitchen

On my birthday last year, I resolved to learn to cook before reaching the big two-four. That was in October, and until about a month ago, I was still completely clueless in the kitchen. My childhood fear of stoves and knives would creep up on me whenever I would think about trying it, but one day I woke up and decided to give it a go once and for all.

I started with making the perfect moist, fluffy scrambled eggs--the kind I've always loved but couldn't teach our household help to make because, well, I didn't even know how they were done! After that small success, I started getting more "challenging" recipes from all over the internet, like Jamie Oliver's website and a number of recipe portals. I then ventured into a bit of experimentation by making my own cream-based pasta dishes, and, inspired by a food article assignment, managed to whip up an authentic Peruvian dish.

My newfound fascination with culinary thrills gave me an idea for the blog. Now I'm making a few adjustments with The CityLifeStylist Eats by going beyond food reviews to include tried and tested recipes from around the globe.

Hope you enjoy it! Stay tuned.
