Frequently Asked Questions

Winola Peris

Where are you from?

I’m from a lot of places, really. My parents are from Mangalore, Karnataka, India; but I was born in Muscat, Oman, and continued to live there till I completed 10th grade. Since, I have lived in Mangalore, Manipal and Mumbai, India. I’m currently ‘taking a break’ at my parents’ in Muscat, Oman.

Why do you blog?

The blog is a nook where I can be myself and do what I love. It’s a space within which I’ve managed to combine my love for writing, food and photography. And it keeps me happy! 🙂

Do you have a day job, or do you blog full-time?

I am a magazine journalist by profession. But I quit my day job a few months ago to blog full-time. This status, of course, may change and I will keep you posted as I go.

When you’re not working on the blog, how do you spend your time?

I am a VORACIOUS reader and can be lost in a book for hours. I also spend more time that I care to admit ‘Netflix and chilling’ with the boyfriend. 😛 I do love travelling, but I don’t get to do it enough!

What camera and lenses do you use?

I use my trusty Canon 600D. To shoot food, I use the 18-55mm kit lens; a 55-250mm when I’m lazy; and my favourite – the 50mm.

Favourite food?

Sushi & Cake; not together, but I can eat both all day, everyday. Oh, and also coffee!

Favourite meal of the day?

Breakfast & Dessert. Dessert for breakfast is definitely a plus!

Kitchen tools you cannot live without?

  • my snowflake silicone spatula
  • a kitchen scale
  • cup measures
  • wire whisk
  • cake tins of all shapes and sizes!

Favourite Quote?

“Stop. Count your blessings!”
