Thanks for joining me!
This start is credited with my mother and wife pushing my lazy ass to write so here goes nothing.
Let’s start with the name: Foodie Lala. The name’s first part is pretty obvious:
A person with a particular interest in food; a gourmet.
The Lala is borrowed and slightly modified from my own family name. My surname is Lalla and we are an Indo-Aryan ethno-linguistic group who speak the Sindhi language and are native to the Sindh province of Pakistan, which was previously a part of pre-partition British India. I have my ancestral roots in Sukkur and Rohri, Sindh Province (now Pakistan) where my paternal and maternal grandfathers were born.
Funnily, my family has grown up on anecdotes from both granddads reliving their experiences, which were 90% of the time about the awesome foods they had and details about how it was served. So you can now very well understand the maniacal obsession with food is deeply ingrained right into my DNA.
Skipping to twenty-seven years of my life, I would love to leave a description of living life through the real food lover’s eye and with the millennial age, it’s very much possible through a free blog. That’s how we now arrive at this blog.
I promise that this will be an adventurous journey traversing food and hospitality history and the joyful experiences humans have evolved to create and enjoy foods.
