Meet Chitra

by Chitra

I am glad you found us. Join me and my family as we find beauty in our life : living in a modern Swiss country home where we explore Permaculture gardening, create recipes from scratch and documenting our life in a quaint little Swiss country side.

I am an independent researcher, health freak and a passionate home maker.

All my life I have been a passionate about many things like music, cooking, baking, hand embroidery, travelling and organizing. Especially organizing even as a toddler. I find myself out of balance when my living space is cluttered and untidy.

I am a born vegetarian and luckily my husband is also a vegetarian for the past 35 years.

Cooking and my passion for food from scratch

Fiber benefits in your breads from grinding your own flour

Cooking and my passion for making food from scratch was something I learnt early on  from my mother. Baking was something I learnt after marriage.

I bake our breads, cakes, pizzas all from scratch right from milling whole grains.

Now with a thriving garden we have to learn to preserve the produce throughout the winter to last till Spring.

You can see some of the foods I cook from scratch in this link.

In this blog, I will share with you my insights to Swiss country living. (Well not typical Swiss as we have a very international cuisine at our table.)

I never quit learning and studying, so continued learning a lot about natural treatment for common ailments, I research for natural remedies and have collected a lot of hand me down ayurvedic remedies from my mother, aunts and grandmother. I practice yoga regularly and try to meditate regularly.

I can speak about 7 languages fluently, but consider English to be my first language.

At home we speak English, German and Swiss-German.
