Today’s interview comes all the way from Delhi and is brought to us by Silky, co-founder of Palette of Food. A level-11 Zomato reviewer, Silky has amazing food pics on Instagram. Let’s get to know this foodie and blogger-influencer from Delhi.
Tell us about yourself.
I’m Silky. I’m an artist, cosplayer, foodie and a lazy panda. I’m a Delhi-based blogger.
How did you become passionate about food?
To be honest… I don’t eat many veggies and all… but I love to try new cuisines and dishes.
Have you stayed in any other city or country? How were your food experiences there?
I’ve been to Gujarat, Rajasthan, Odisha, and I’ve tried Russian food too… And honestly… Delhi’s food is best.
What’s the story behind starting your microblog?
I’m the co-founder of PALETTE OF FOOD. I click better photos of food than of humans and one day I texted my sister “want to start a food blog?” She replied “lol sure” That’s how it all started!
What is your favorite food memory?
Memories are many but this one thing is part of every memory… We (me and my sister) generally prefer walking rather than taking an auto or something for short distances (1-2 km). And we discuss different food on our way to our destination.
How do you get your inspiration?
What has enabled you to find success?
It’s not about success. It’s about enjoying what we do.
Who in the food world do you most admire?
The owner of a theme stall where I go to eat gol gappas!
What do you find new and exciting about the food industry?
There is no end to creativity. And people always come up with crazy innovation in traditional dishes.
The Biggest Challenges you faced while putting up your microblog?

What keeps you going?
Our love for food.
What is your day like?
Exercise, eat and sleep.
What do you most love about your job?
