Archana Doshi grew up in the industrial city of Coimbatore in Southern India and spent most of her childhood there, with little exposure to cuisines around the world. But her entire family loved to eat and cook, including her father, who "used to whip up fabulous Sunday lunches once in a while," Archana tells us. Her mother was especially fond of cooking and experimenting with a variety of foods. "She collected a zillion recipe clippings and never failed to try them all," Archana says. "She always cooked with so much love."

As Archana moved out of her childhood home, into college and into her adult work life, her own cooking skills grew. When she had her first baby (she now has two sons), she decided to be a stay-at-home mom. At that time, she had the idea that she wanted to start writing a recipe book, but with blogs becoming more popular, she decided to go that route instead--and so Archana's Kitchen was born.
