I know of several talented neighbors, friends and acquaintances who make authentic south and north Indian food and cater on a daily basis or for parties on the east side of Seattle. Some of them even bake custom cakes both egg-based and egg-free for birthday parties and special occasions. I wanted to compile a list of such home-based caterers and bakers to benefit all my Seattle and east side readers. My friend AR generously sent me a list of people she knew in the Redmond area and i managed to get the rest. This is definitely not an exhaustive list, if you know of someone that i may have missed , please leave their information in the comment section of this post and i will update it.
