About The Author
For the past thirty-six years Morvarid, her husband David, and daughter Katrina have lived on an organic farm deep amid the jungles of the Western Ghats. Though agriculture has always been the family's mainstay, in 2003 they opened a guesthouse. Working in her 'Green and Yellow' kitchen, Morvarid cooks for the many guests from around the world who visit The Hermitage.
This book she has written draws on her experiences of living in a rural community, of forging a deep, unbreakable bond with the surrounding environment, and growing her organic food. Morvarid's family background, drawn from Zoroastrian, Irish, and Dutch ancestry gave her childhood a delightful insight into a melting pot of cultures, and this reflects in her cooking.
