Hello, I'm Vidyalakshmi, born and brought up in Bangalore. I'm a person who loves chocolatecake, cooking, music and facebook.  

Here's my story behind the blog, I used to work in a MNC BPO had to quit my job and take a break from night shifts, during this period I developed interest in photography. 

I owned a point and shoot Sony DSC used to click many pics and share it on social media and in my free time used to create many fusion recipes some where in June 2009 combined both my amateurish photography skills and cooking experiments to take part in blogging community and thus created vidyascooking. 

Over the years as i developed my cooking skills and had actual followers I started earning from my content and was so thrilled with my part time work.

I took my blogging career seriously and now Blog full time. My passion for food has grown so much over the years I took up reviewing kitchen accessories, restaurants, wines and food products.

I most definitely love Amma's traditional south Indian khanna. she has always been my pillar of strength when ever we are alone or late in the night mom and I always discuss on the next cookery project its this bond which is keeping me and mom engaged and for once in our life we don't argue and take work seriously.

About Dad he is always my Hero he does the grocery shopping gives 100% support for my blog.

Please do not ask any one personal questions. There are so many People who keep asking me if I'm married or dating anyone. No I'm not married and not in a mood to engage with dating activity if  I find some one and get married will update this space. as of now I'm a Happy go lucky Girl....

My Hobbies:
Fabric Painting, Embroidery, puja pat, kolam, and doodling.

When and What I Blog:
Every Tuesdays I post a Review this way you can bookmark my post and try your hands on food products or plan a head of time to visit a restaurant on weekends.

Every Thursdays I post a Fusion Recipe these recipes are purely experimental I never copy or recreate anyone's recipe if someone forwards me their recipe I will prepare and do a taste testing if I like your recipe will surely create a video, blog and will give credits to you.

Every Saturday or Sunday I post a special recipe can be veg or nonveg recipe and during weekends people love to relax and create some whole some soul food.

These are the days you can look forward for my blogs.

Camera's and lens used:
I use a 60D and 700D Canon DSLR Camera with 50mm leans for those classic shots and 18-55mm for basic shots I rent out a 70-200mm lens for fast zoom videos recording. I also use a canon power shot sx130 its a point and shoot cam and take it for my travel.

My Favourite editing software:
I'm always a huge fan of pixlr and pic monkey. For movie editing I use MovieMaker, Corel Video Studio pro.
