Hello, I am Chitra, I am glad that you found me. 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
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.
