Namaste, I am Krati Agarwal, the face behind Simple and Sustainable. Glad you made it to my blog!
This blog is a lovely nook where I share what I cook and bake in my tiny kitchen. All the recipes that I write about are made from scratch. That’s a key thing in my cooking. I try to use seasonal and local ingredients as much as possible. I found a couple of local and farmer’s markets that sell seasonal produce here in Rotterdam. Love shopping in these markets! I also photograph the atmosphere and moments in these markets, something I absolutely adore!
This is an ongoing photography project that I started back in the UK. It also gives me an opportunity to understand and talk to the producers about the seasonal and sustainable practises of growing food.
Forgot to tell ya, I grew up in India and that’s where my love for spices started. Before moving to Netherlands, I was living in the UK and fell in love with English countryside and afternoon teas. That’s why you will see my food stories are mostly influenced by my spice box and English bakes.
Talking about bakes, I will head to the kitchen, put the kettle on and bake some scones now for my afternoon tea!
It was lovely to meet you all and in the meantime you can either look for some recipe on my website or hop onto my social media accounts to devour on some food pictures or find out about the local markets.
Bye for now!!!
