Sauce! began in 2009, to keep friends, family and acquaintances – in graduate schools and new jobs in new cities – from wasting away expensively on TV dinners, instant noodles, burger-chain rubbish and take-outs. Sauce! featured actual meals that I cooked and ate – easily, quickly and inexpensively prepared dishes from Bengal and beyond.
Why bother, though?
Obesity and diet-related illnesses are the fifth largest risk to our health globally [WHO]. Unless there are congenital illnesses or lack of vital resources, what one eats is a fairly accurate indicator of how healthy one will be. Plus it’s also an excellent indicator of how much one will save on both food and medical bills. So heath, yum, and money saved.
