Welcome to Rekha’s Garden and Kitchen

About Rekha:

When I look into why I enjoy gardening, it started from an early age helping my mother in her beautiful back garden which was mainly laid with vegetable beds, a few Mango trees and a beautiful Mulberry Bush. Whether it be weeding, watering or harvesting crops, I can say I have always enjoyed the outdoors. As I grew up, moved country, got married and had children, my passion for gardening has stayed with me.

As for cooking, it slowly followed in my teens. My mother is a great cook, learning the basics from her to start with, slowly gaining confidence to try and experiment with dishes. But above all, my mother allowed us to have fun in the kitchen, of course under her watchful eye! And now as a mother myself, I enjoy making wholesome dishes for my family. I do believe in eating fresh and healthy; for me it’s always about where our food has come from. 

I look forward to sharing with you my growing experiences and dishes using as much my own seasonal produce as possible, and these recipes I shall share with you. 

Hope you enjoy following my journey and experiences as we go through the seasons and I look forward to receiving your comments and feedbacks.

  1. It will be good to follow your comments, Rekha. I have a special interest in apples (did your mother have any in her garden?) but will be keen to read on other topics too. For some reason I am being signed in as "Arthur Jefferson" (Stan Laurel's real name) – I wonder why? / Nigel Deacon

  2. Hi Nigel,I was born and brought up in Zambia, and we didn't have apples, not readily available then. But here on my allotment plot I have planted a small tree. Will post updates on it. and recipes to go with it too. Regards
