My re­la­tion­ship with food is the purest: Maria

Maria Goretti’s pas­sion for food is no se­cret. Af­ter cook­ing up a storm to host­ing food shows, Goretti’s lat­est ad­di­tion to her food love is her book, From My Kitchen to Yours.

And no foodie can have enough of lip-smack­ing Delhi food. “I love Delhi and Delhi food! As a kid, when­ever I’d visit the Cap­i­tal, I would go around gulp­ing down scoops of ice cream,” says Goretti, who is mar­ried to ac­tor Ar­shad Warsi.

“I fondly re­mem­ber, once (an­chor) Mini Mathur’s brother took us to a restau­rant in Pu­rani Delhi, and we all dug into some scrumptious Bara Ke­bab. They were de­li­cious,” she says. Goretti is happy to have dis­cov­ered her pas­sion for cook­ing, late in life. “If I had dis­cov­ered my pas­sion for food ear­lier, I might have got­ten bored with it, by the time I’d be 35. So the tim­ing is good. My re­la­tion­ship with food is the purest,” says the mother of two.

Her re­la­tion­ship with food de­vel­oped as she started cook­ing for her son. To bet­ter her skills, she went to a culi­nary school. Later, recog­nis­ing her pas­sion, Goretti started her cook­ery chan­nel, hosted a show and went on to author the cook book. Be­fore sign­ing off, she adds, “I of­ten pick up or­ganic food from Delhi. A bak­ery in Khan Mar­ket and the ke­bab wala be­hind it is my favourite.”
