About the Practical Cook

Hello, this is Utsa,a Bangali ( since I hail from West Bengal in India, that is what we are called) living all over the place, currently based out of Frankfurt.I am an absolute foodie and I love my 'Maach Bhaat'( fish and rice- cooked the Bengali way of course). After moving abroad, I started missing Bengali food so much so that I used to spend a lot time in the kitchen after work experimenting and trying to create that comfort food that I grew up eating. 


Then I realized that globally people are hardly aware about what Bengali cuisine is let alone its diversity. It's been my passion ever since to give the world a taste of Bengal at the comfort of their home and without spending hours in the kitchen or super markets looking out for spices.. 

The Practical Cook spice mixes literally makes cooking simple and practical, as you don't really have to look out for or buy special Bengali or Indian spices, rather use these easy to cook spice mixes and make Bengali food right at home.

Here's me giving you Bengal in every bite!
