My first word was ‘kha” which is Bengali for “eat” which is funny because as a kid I didn’t like to eat anything – especially anything cooked at home.

Fast forward 20 years, dorm life and the sudden discovery of cooking – and a foodie was born.

Now I lead a super busy life, cooking, eating, writing and hanging out with my buddies. Most of them are foodies to start with, but those that are not find my enthusiasm for food fascinating and usually become converts.

I love to cook, host dinner parties, arrange restaurant outings and cover food events.

A couple of years ago I found that I was going out of my way to write restaurant reviews and cover food events on my beat as a politics/ crime reporter. It was time to start a food blog. One lazy Saturday morning, as I salivated over a delicious plate of french toast at a local brunch hot spot, it hit me and HBT was born.

As a starving writer and foodie who would love to eat out more if she could afford to, my focus is on cheap eats, hidden gems, food news and local freshness. As a reporter I luckily get invited to some pretty swanky stuff that I am also happy to write about. So if you cook me a great meal or join me at a brew fest, chances are it will show up on HBT.

Dig in!

    Hi! I’m one of the organizers for YUM: A Taste of Immigrant City, part of the ongoing work of The Welcome Project, that aims to promote local immigrant-run businesses in Somerville. There are two parts to this initiative: the YUM restaurant card and the YUM event.

    The YUM Restaurant Card gets you 10% discounts on orders above $25 at 10 immigrant-run Somerville restaurants. All proceeds support The Welcome Project’s programs for Somerville’s immigrant families.

    The YUM Celebration and Fundraiser is on Wednesday, April 25th at the Somerville Arts at the Armory. This is where the YUM restaurants will come together to offer tastings of their unique cuisines!

    It would be awesome if you could write about our project on your blog/twitter/facebook. What do you think? Let me know if you have any questions about the YUM card, event or anything else.
