The very lovely – Patricia TanumihardjaPickles and Tea interviewed me today for the Christian Science Monitor:


Q. In “A Life of Spice,” there are chapters titled “Food and Culture” and “Food and Identity.” You were born in India and raised in Bahrain, and now live in the United States. I’m sure your culture, childhood environment, and where you live now have played a huge part in influencing your writing. Has this multicultural background shaped you into the writer and person you are today? What’s your response when people ask you, “Where are you from?”

Answer: I like to consider myself a global citizen – India is my soul, Bahrain is my heart and my spirit is the US!
