Guttans, an initiative that was born out of the desire to document tried and tested recipes to share with friends and family. An online recipe binder – web arena – that showcases our family recipes and the recipes collected over the years from friends and families, cookbooks, magazines and webmedia. Guttans webhome also shares cooking tips and tricks related to each recipe.
Food is inextricably linked to occasions and memories. There is taste and smell that draws out memories, binding us to those present, those past. Food is like music. It should be relaxing, refreshing, and nourishing. Flavors, colors, and smells should intermingle on your palate and relish your taste buds.
Cooking is an equal opportunity talent and anybody can cook. What is needed is the love for cooking, patience, and willingness to learn. Make mistakes, try again, and master. Some of the recipes here are creatively adapted and then spent hours testing, tweaking and perfecting recipes to suit our taste buds and to make cooking and eating easier.
”It’s fun to get together and have something good to eat at least once a day. That’s what human life is all about enjoying things.”(Julia Child). Eating is a need and enjoying is an art. And, for most of us, cooking is inspired by love. Love for the family. Love for the healthy body and mind. So explore, look around and find the recipes here for your healthy family.
