Good Food India featured Ipsitas review of some well-known eateries in Vizag covering places to have breakfast, lunch and dinner in March 2012.
Ipsita received a 1.2 liter Glen Electric Kettle for winning a competition titled Glen Super Woman Contest where she had to write about why she loves cooking in March 2014.
Here is what she wrote and won the competition: The sizzle of spices in hot oil, the crunch of veggies as I cut them, the soothing sound of the ladle stirring things up in a wok, the satisfying sound of my family licking their fingers clean … these sounds make my day everyday. I wake up anticipating the aroma of what I will cook for my family that day. I go to work each day knowing that each trip I make pays for every morsel my family enjoys. I go to sleep with the joy of knowing my family is well fed and loved every bite they took at the dinner table. Food awakens me, liberates me, relaxes me, excites me, makes me feel responsible, makes me be a loving wife and generous friend, it makes me a great doggie mom and an avid practitioner of my moms cooking tradition. These are all the reasons I love cooking. I dont need anymore…
Ipsita is a home cook who offers international tourists a chance to savor home cooked traditional Indian dishes through a site called Lunch and Siesta. She received a Nivea gift hamper for being the first few home cooks on the site to have uploaded their menus and gone live in January 2016.
Ipsita was one of the first 50 people who submitted their recipes in the World Cuisine Contest on a food site called Better Butter and won a 1 liter bottle of Canola oil in January 2016.
