Menus & Miles is our family food and travel blog where we share our travel stories and culinary adventures….we hope you enjoy a slice of our journey…
Meet the ‘Menus and Miles’ team….
Swati (c’est moi!)
I started my career in advertising and was later associated with a corporate communications company before becoming an entrepreneur. Today I am a business coach and also have a retail women’s clothing business. Food is a passion but to be honest I love eating more than cooking. I cook occasionally too…and bake sometimes!
I’m mainly vegetarian though I enjoy eating fish and chicken at times. I savour different cuisines (Thai is one of my favourites!) and I really enjoy going out to new restaurants! I relish a good Indian meal every now and then and I’m still on the lookout for an amazing authentic Indian restaurant in the UK. Everything that I’ve tried so far hasn’t quite met my standards!
And as far travel goes – well just the thought of it gets me buzzing! I’m always planning our next travel adventure – the next one in the pipeline is a road trip to Netherlands in a couple of weeks….looking forward to this one…
Neel (my food and travel partner…and husband)
Neel is a versatile and talented individual and has worked with several organisations providing consulting, advisory and project management services. He is a perfectionist with a passion for technology and number crunching.
Neel is also a passionate photographer and in his spare time is busy clicking away! I’ve told him several times to start his own photography blog…which hasn’t happened yet so we’ll showcase some of his pics through our posts. And you will see him posting on this blog too every now and then!
Si and Ri (our beautiful children)
Si is our bright and beautiful seven year old daughter who has a passion for food! She loves to watch Masterchef and often helps me out in the kitchen. She’s our little sous chef and has even cooked some meals all by herself….well almost! (just a teeny bit of help!). You can see some of them in the ‘Home Cooking’ section!
She also loves reading and writing and has started writing a dairy…which she calls her written blog!
And Ri is our car crazy four year old boy! He’s very shy and timid around others….and you’ll hardly ever hear his voice! But once he does get to know you his real personality will shine through and he is a little cartoon character….who loves to show off his car knowledge to anyone who will listen to him! His favourite television show is – Top Gear!
And he also loves singing! And mind you not children’s songs – his latest ones are – ‘A Million Dreams’, ‘The Heat is On’ and ‘Hungry Eyes’!!!
