My name is Charischa, born and raised in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
I have an Indian & Surinamese heritage but brought up in the Netherlands.
My parents are from Suriname which is a small country in South America and my grand-grand-grand parents are from India.
There are three countries where i can be related too but non of them is my home. I’m not Dutch because I’m not white, I’m not Surinamese because I’m too Dutch and I’m not Indian because I’m too western.
I grew up with flavours of the Surinamese kitchen which is super diverse.
It is a mixture of many cuisines, one of the biggest is the Indian kitchen.
But also, African, Indonesian, Chinese , Dutch, Portugese and Jewish.
As a 5 year old child I always wanted to help my mother in the kitchen.
All I can remember is that I needed to peel garlic and clean the rice.
Back at the days there were some brown or black rice grains in the super large bag of rice (read: basmati)…
I needed to help filter that from the white ones.
Come to think of that my sense of OCD was born there.
I can say that FOOD is my passion and makes me happy how BIG the FOOD industry is growing every second of the day.
I want to share my flavor experience in recipes, articles, photo’s, video’s etc etc. etc.
