Remembering Jayashree who always had a smile


Picture Lata took on one of her vists to see Jayashree
A good friend told moments like this one don't know how to express/write aobut what you are feeling and your thoughts. I do agree to her.
It was a big Shock when I read in FB that Jayashree had passed away.
I remeber a week ago she saying in Fb that it was one year she moved to pune and also she has been posting Navarathri pictures etc......
I knew Jayashree through her blog Experiments in Kailas Kitchen I guess I started going to her blog because of the traditional recipes which she makes and lot of them I missed beeing away from home.
I remember when ever she posted something which was similar to what I used to have at home ,I used to wite a comment how much I like all these dishes and how authentic her recipes were.
Some of the blogger like Aparna, Lata who have met her wanted to do something for honouring her memory.
So they thought the best way is to blog something from Jayashree's blog .
And that is what I have done yesterday made this delicious Ribbon Pakoda .

So this is what we thought was the best thing to do and we are appealing to all of you in the food blogging community (in India and the rest of the world) to join us in this effort.


We’re also calling non-bloggers who either followed her blog or knew her in some way to please join us in this tribute to Jayasree.
The below writtings are from Aparna's blog.
We’re hoping as many of you as possible will join us all in showing our support for her and her family when they need it the most.

1. Please visit Jayasree’s blog, Experiments In Kailas Kitchen, and go through it.

2. Try one or more recipes from her blog and please post your photograph of it with the link to her original recipe on Jayasree’s Facebook page dedicated to her blog. To post on her Facebook page, all you have to do is to click on the “like” button first.

3. If you have a blog and would like to post about this please feel free to do so. This would help spread the word among your readers who might not know of this otherwise.

4. In your post please link ONLY to Jayasree’s recipe that you chose. Do not link to any of us. Also, please DO NOT reproduce or discuss her recipe in this particular post. Do feel free to share something about Jayasree if you wish, as that would be really nice.

5. It would be especially nice if we could all do this before the 12th of November, 2011 as this would be the first month anniversary of her demise.

Hoping to see your wholehearted support for Jayasree and her family. Thank you.
