Creative Cooking


Why do women sulk

When it is time to cook

Saying that it is a dreadful chore

For food is the music of Love

To give the Bard’s words a new twist

Cooking is a result of creativity

It adds wellness and makes us brawny

Just as we balance work-life beautifully

We can evaluate food and health carefully

On positive weighing scales steadily!

Giood health is not available free

The right choices, proportions

Six tastes and a dollop of love

Added to any dish expertly

Can make a difference to the family

Man or woman, child or elder

The ladle, saucepan and rolling pin 

Are the most important instruments

That sustain a family, not its wealth and riches

Money afterall cannot buy you good health, can it?


About padmum

You could call me Dame Quixote! I tilt at windmills. I have an opinion on most matters. What I don't have, my husband Raju has in plenty. Writer and story teller, columnist and contributer of articles, blogs, poems, travelogues and essays to Chennai newspapers, national magazines and websites, I review and edit books for publishers and have specialized as a Culinary Editor and contributed content, edited and collaborated on Cookbooks. My other major interest is acting on Tamil and English stage, Indian cinema and TV. I am a wordsmith, a voracious reader, crossword buff and write about India's heritage, culture and traditions. I am interested in Vedanta nowadays.
