Simple Vegetarian Entertaining & Family Cooking with our Contributor from CASA DESAI - Irvine Moms


We are very excited to introduce you to our Wonderful and Talented Krystal Desai

Around Irvine MOMS, we are big fans and appreciate the new dishes and baked treats that Krystal and her daugthers showcase for their readers.

What is your background?

    • I’m in Information Technology for a healthcare company)
    • Indian (South Asian)
    • I grew up with my parents and grandmother who were always cooking. They loved making recipes from scratch (I was spoiled) and passed down recipes and the love for cooking down to myself as well as my children.



What is it about food that is your favorite aspect?

      • My favorite aspect about food is enjoying the finished dish with my friends and family. Food is a huge part of my culture and it brings people together in many celebrations and gatherings. Food is a way we show the people around them that we love them.
      • Best dessert you ever had? This was a toss up between 12 desserts, but I would have to say currently: The classic Churro from Don Gomez Churros in Anaheim.





How many times do you cook  a week? and eat out?

        • We try to cook 5-6 days a week and eat out 1 day a week.



Best spot to have some mama time

          • Y.N.K. in Irvine
          • Peter’s Canyon Trail
          • Any Target (without the kids)
