In her job as a physician, Linda Shiue talks about food as an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. But she believes that food isn’t just about nutrition, it can be inspiration. She devotes her leisure time to reading voraciously, eating with gusto, traveling, and cooking meals inspired by her travels.
She has named this site after the spicebox that is found in the kitchens of Indian homes, called a “masala dabba.” A masala dabba consists of a large, flat-bottomed, round steel container in which nest several smaller steel bowls, all covered with a lid. This traditional spicebox is visually appealing as well as being a convenient and portable way to keep herbs and spices fresh and at hand, wherever you are, when you’re in the mood to cook.
