What Readers Are Saying

Great work!

I love to read gingeritup articles because it’s everything which you can relate to. The recipes so presentable and delicious yet so easy and simple ingredients and the lil intros which Mani writes to describe the recipe makes you connect with it. The other articles on gingeritup I find very honest and sincere . Rendezvous series is an inspiring unique initiative which she has started which I haven’t seen anywhere else . Overall, I admire Mani for she is so talented and a multitasker.

Amazing blog from an amazning girl!

I met Mani for the first time when she approached for interviewing me for her Rendezvous series! Right then, I was immensely impressed by her dedication, passion and commitment towards her blog! Ginger-it-up is not just a random blog, its a well thought and amazingly executed piece of art! Her love for food, and her passion of meeting people and executing their journey with such warmth and love makes Mani stand out from what others are doing. I have gotten to know Mani after our first meet and I am glad our paths crossed! Wishing you an amazing journey ahead! Keep writing!:)
