Welcome to the Green Peacock!

Hello and welcome to my blog! This is where I will be sharing my vegetarian recipes along with essays of my adventures, travels and other frivolities.

As this is my very first post, I would like to dedicate this to all the women and men in my family who love to cook and are always conjuring up amazing eats. I am extremely fortunate that both sides of my family come from a lineage of good cooks with discerning tastes. The young members in my family are always encouraged to putter around the kitchen while meals are being prepared in order to learn the art as well as to give the cook company.

As for me, I have been following my mom around in the kitchen for as long as I can remember, and even still, when I'm at my parent's place I am constantly in the kitchen doing something or another. Maybe the draw is that the kitchen is a place where you can't do too much wrong. Where you won't get scolded for staying out too late or wearing your skirt too short. A promised land. Where bellies are filled and satiated until the next meal is served.
