A tribute to Jayasree

I opened my reader yesterday with an alarming title at Lata’s place: in a memory of Dear friend. For a moment, I was shocked to read the sad news that Jayasree – a food blogger is no more.
Jayasree from Kailas Kitchen blogged pretty much regularly her family treasured recipes. Many of her dishes reflect Palakkad Brahmin style.
Personally, I don't know much about her. But, she was my regular follower from long time and I never missed any of her posts.
She was quiet generous, taking the moment to read my posts and leave her thoughts in form of sweet encouraging words. How many bloggers give credits for their inspirations? Well Jaya stood apart from others. She kindly acknowledged me for her Raagi Biscuits that showed her great personality. Her art of Kolam (rangoli) proved her artistic skills.
I picked one of her early day blogging recipes. Being a food blogger myself, I can understand those recipes must be treasured by her family members or probably her favorite.
It is really aching to realize, Jayasree is no more to read how much we appreciated her recipe and how much we are going to miss her around.
If you haven’t come across this beautiful blogger, time to give a visit at Experiment Kailas Kitchen, try a recipe and join the tribute.
