 Looking back, the year 2011 was a remarkable year for me in my culinary journey!

  • My first TV series “Healthful Indian Flavors with Alamelu” originally aired on MPTV in 2010 was picked up by other Public Television stations around the country. The response I received from viewers across the country was most encouraging and inspiring!
  • Contributing some recipes to “Healing Spices” by Dr. Bharat Aggarwal’s, book published in Jan. 2011,   was an honorable experience for me. Dr. Aggarwal is a cancer research scientist at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas.
  • My new book “Chettinad  Kitchen” was published in India, Jan. 2011 (Tata-Westland; New Delhi)
  • I was invited to record a second (this time 13 part) series of my TV program, “Healthful Indian Flavors with Alamelu” by MPTV. A new feature of the second season of my TV series was the contribution of a Registered Dietitian, Margaret Pfeiffer through her comments on the nutritional aspects of the foods I prepared in my shows. The recoding experience in the Summer and Fall of 2011 was hard work but rewarding and exciting!
  • As in previous years, I continued to present well-received cooking events at the Annual Kohler Food and Wine Experience and the Dine and Wine Wisconsin event in Milwaukee

Now, looking ahead to 2012, I feel energized to promote my passion in healthful cooking to the public. Have a great, productive, healthy New Year!
