About


Hi All! 
Welcome to Cooking for Kishore!
Emily & Kishore

My name is Emily. I am a half Costa Rican,half Irish-American who is married to my Hyderabadi love, Kishore.

My exposure to cooking came from my Mother, my Grandmothers, Aunts, Aunties, and other women in my  family. Meals were not exclusively Irish, Costa Rican or American; they were international /fusion cuisine before it became popular. Mom's peanut noodles, Grandma's black bean soup, Grandma's roasted root vegetables; being in the kitchen offered different smells, spices, and tastes.

The dreaded Pasta.
My adventures in cooking began one day when my mother was preparing dinner. I asked what was for dinner and she said the word I was dreading, "Pasta." 

"Pasta! Pasta? Really Pasta? Again?" 

Coming from a family of runners pasta had become the norm for at least 3 dinners a week. I had reached my limit and apparently so had my mother. 

"This is not a restaurant. If you don't want to eat the food I make, you better learn to cook for yourself."

That was all I needed to hear. Me being the hard-headed, strong-willed teenage I accepted the challenge. 

"Fine I will!"

I wish I could say that, that night I made a wonderful dinner that put Mom's pasta to shame...but I'll be honest I made a tuna-fish sandwich.  


Beef with Broccoli
After that began the test phase. 

There were some hits....
Beef with Broccoli

and some misses....
Aloo Matar( Potato and Pea Curry)


Overall the family has been pretty good; bearing with my kitchen experiments and giving their honest opinion, and I appreciate it.

This blog will be dedicated to those who've contributed to the culinary cacophony that resonates from our multicultural kitchen. Hope you enjoy!
