Welcome to Swamy’s Kitchen. Alicia and I started this site to share our love for cooking. I was born in the beautiful state of California. My parents migrated from the Fiji Islands to the Bay Area in search of a better opportunity. The setbacks and triumphs of navigating the waters of a new life in America were many, but the one constant was delicious food.

When we share a meal with people, we are sharing our entire history and culture. In one plate, you can taste the spice route of the 15th century, the migration of Indians to the South Pacific, and the hard work of 2 generations of sugarcane farmers.

We hope you discover something delicious!
