I am Shyamali, the storyteller, the cook and the recipe developer behind Foodies Hut. I believe that a home-cooked meal does not fill only the hungry stomachs but also creates lots of good memories. A home-cooked dish tells stories, the stories that a generation handover to the next generation. I love to cook Indian and Bengali dishes with local Australian produce. In this blog, I share the recipes, food stories and meal ideas. While I cook and document recipes, tell stories; my Husband Biswajit loves to capture all the pictures, videos. He creates all the visual contents.
