Meeta K


FFF LOVES… Meeta’s discerning eye for the delicious things in life.

What are your staples?
Pistachios, saffron, couscous, bulgur, pasta, “good” olive oil, a variety of different flours like buckwheat, spelt and of course all-purpose, beans and lentils & canned tomatoes, lots of (too many) spices.

What are your indulgences?
Oh I have so many! But I’d have to say chocolate and cheese, not really together though. My perfect meal would be a lovely wooden cheese board spread out with cheeses from around the world, good bread, crackers and chutneys, chilled white wine and a good girlfriend to share it with while we giggle about the 80s and a lot of girltalk. As dessert it’ll have to be something decadently chocolatey!

What can’t you live without?
I think it’ll have to be my morning coffee. I drink two cups a day and the morning one gets me rolling for the day.

What is past its use-by-date?
It’s mostly yogurt. Living in Germany, where there is a huge variety of delicious fruit yogurts to choose from, I usually get very carried away and buy too much.

What is your pantry craving?
Fresh, luscious and sweet Norwegian strawberries tossed in quark and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Born in India, Meeta was brought up in and went on to train in some of the world’s finest hotels where food was always a huge part of her life. Meeta’s love for food photography stems from her obsession with food itself and she combines her two greatest passions on her multi-faceted, globally-oriented blog ‘What’s For Lunch, Honey?’ reflects her life and lifestyle and is a mix of research, discoveries and elaborate cooking experiments gone sometimes right and sometimes wrong.

When she is not styling, photographing or writing about food Meeta loves traveling around the world, exploring new cultures and capturing it all on camera.
