Here is a brief info by her:
Hello/ Namaskar, I’m Sharmila. I was born and brought up in Kolkata which is well known as “the City of joy and food”.
I’m a die-hard foodie before a good cook. My cravings for food extends me to my kitchen. Through my childhood and college days, I was only an expert in eating, observing my mom and aunt cook, occasionally cooking, collecting recipes from newspapers, watching cookery shows, and drooling all time.
First I introduced in the kitchen at the age of 6-7 for an emergency landing. As my mom was not around, I had to take out boiling eggs from the cooktop to make it ready for my school’s tiffin box. And what I did was technically correct (transferring the eggs from hot water to cold water to get the boiled eggs at right temperature so that it could easily be peeled off ). Cooking was in my blood already.
Then introduced making Maggie, tea, omelet (basic cooking ), and at the age of 14, I prepared my home-style delicious chicken curry which was liked by everyone. Whatever I loved to eat, I loved to make if I get a chance.
My real culinary journey began when I started working in Hyderabad (2010) – for survival. First 2-3 weeks I enjoyed eating Hyderabadi biryani, chili chicken, and all Dhaba foods. But soon after the stomach and purse, both became upset. 🙁
I started craving for home food and sometimes Kolkata street foods which were difficult to get in South India. I started following many food blogs, websites, YouTube videos, and collecting food memories from my past little experience. I combined all of them to learn some tasty dishes to satiate my hunger for good food and also used to experiment with my dishes on my friends and would be…
Some of the dishes came out super hit and some were a disaster. But I didn’t stop. Thus the necessity makes me cooking obsessed.
Soon after i got married and the kitchen became my full time “experimenting hub” where I continued to enjoy this exciting and adventurous culinary journey with few kitchen disastrous, some blunders and good food on the way spicing up my life.
And one day, observing my interest in cooking my hubby suggested me to share my recipes through a blog – that’s what was in my mind ( I already left job then for my daughter).
My brother in law also supported and came up with an idea to create video recipes. He loves experimenting with videos/ photos like I love to do so with cooking. So we both collaborated and the new channel “Sharmilazkitchen” born.
The first recipe was Fruit Custard, we released. We waited for the whole day and got 11 views. Not bad for the first time. We were very happy with those views.
Slowly I realized that you are also loving my recipes. Your positive comments encourage me to post recipes more and more.
With your love and support, now sharmilazkitchen has reached 30K+ subscribers, 5 million+ views and verified by YouTube. And it’s awesome.
The channel is growing up like I made my child grow up. It has been more than three years for both (my daughter and channel). So I couldn’t even think to discontinue the channel, because it becomes part of my life. I put effort, dedication, and lot of care to create a single interactive video so that you can easily learn the recipes and serve good food to your family..
I have learned many things through this journey and become a self-taught chef/ blogger/ content writer/vlogger/videographer/ food photographer.
It’s still growing up. Long way to go.
Stay with me. Learn to make awesome foods. Treat your family and enjoy the journey. have fun!
