Cooking Curries is a blog about real food made with real ingredients and I love organic, natural and local products with minimal ingredient list on the label. I am not a big fan of overly processed and ready to eat food, though there may be exceptions based on what all goes in it. A lot of recipes in here have an Indian touch to it, from mainstream Indian cuisine to regional cuisines of India from many parts of the country. I love to work with brands that helps me carry on the message of cooking really good food at home with real fresh ingredients.
I have built an audience who trust me to share with them good brands and products that my family and I love. They look to Cooking Curries, not just the blog but on all of social media, as a resource for recipes ( family recipes, kids recipes), travel inspiration, lifestyle inspiration and basically how to eat and live well!
I am currently a brand ambassador for Stonyfield Organic and have worked with several brands like Simply Organic, King Arthur Flour, Nutri Ninja Blender, Post Cereals, Bertolli, Boom Chicka Pop Popcorn, several wineries and many more. I have mostly worked on recipe develpment with these brand’s products.
Here are some examples of the type of work we can do together:
- Recipe Development
- Brand Ambassador
- Social Media Promotion
- Product Reviews
- Product Launch / Promotion Events and subsequent blog / social media coverage of it
- Product Giveaways
- Food Photography / Styling
I am open to other suggestions and creatively coming up with combination options of the above based on the project need and how it will add to the content of the blog and benefit my readers.
I am currently NOT open to working just in exchange of products or “exposure”. Please email me at email@example.com ( manjumahadevan (at) live (dot) com) with a short description of the project, for media kit and rates.
You can read more about me and Cooking Curries on the About Me page.
Look forward to hearing from you!
