We are Dewi and Govinda, two sisters who can safely call themselves "Les parisiennes in love with food".
Our parents met in Paris at an Indian restaurant. Our mom was born in Indonesia and had chosen France as the country of her heart. Our dad lived his childhood in France but visited India for the first time in his twenties and never stopped loving this fascinating land.
No wonder why we love eating and food from around the world!
Since the youngest age, we have been taught to fight our fears, get out there, live our dreams, spread the love and trust life to show us the way.
I am Dewi and a full time foodie !
First thing I read about when travelling is the local food I will experience.
I am a foodie at heart and I believe that foreign culture also travels through my plate. Of all the destinations I have visited, India has become my very favourite place to explore and rejuvenate. Everytime I go I leave a peace of my heart behind and I bring home lots of culinary inspirations.
I will never forget the day I discovered popped water lily seeds. I immediately knew I had found something rare & nutritious that I had to bring home and share with my friends and family.
That day was the ultimate reward for a passionate "food explorer".
I am Gov, the little sister and the chef !
Time runs by when I am in a kitchen experimenting to please the palate of my friends and family. A few years back I travelled and worked in India and Indonesia before returning home my pockets filled with culinary ideas and asian spices.
Dewi says that was the beginning of my journey as a "food artist". That is usually when I start blushing... Though I must admit I have simply loved those years cooking fusion vegetarian & Satvik food for yoga retreats on the french Riviera!
It was then only natural to join my older sister on a challenge to come up with something innovative and gourmet using popped water lily seeds she had brought back from India.
That was the begining of an exciting journey to bring Oh Lily to life.
