Disclaimer & Disclosures

My Diverse Kitchen is a personal food and food photography blog written and edited by Aparna Balasubramanian. All the opinions and conclusions expressed on this blog are mine (except guest posts written for this blog, where this is specifically mentioned at the beginning of the post), and should not take the place of medical or dietary advice.

This website may contain links to other websites. Please understand that visiting and using these links is at your own risk and is subject to the terms and conditions of the respective sites. Please see my Privacy Policy for more details.

Advertising on this website is in the form of banner ads generated by a third party ad network, and I am compensated for running them though they don’t pay my bills. This compensation will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.

Some of the links on this site are Amazon Associates affiliate links. Amazon links are not “pay-per-click” links and commissions are only made on things you actually purchase. The prices are the same for you whether you use an affiliate link or not.

Commissions help me pay for my extensive time and the costs in operating this blog. So I would greatly appreciate when you use my affiliate links as it encourages me to keep on keeping on with blogging. I will only link to products that I can personally attest to and that I have had experience using. That includes many of the giveaways I run.

I review cookbooks, food products and occasionally restaurants, provided they are relevant to my diet, food style and convictions, and this blog. I reserve the right to choose whether to review a product or not, and will do so only if I find it worth spending my time and effort doing so. I further also reserve the right to review the cookbook/ product as it appears to me, good and bad. I can promise that I will do my best to provide an unbiased review.

I am also open to being a brand ambassador for food products or will write select sponsored posts subject to the above mentioned conditions. Products relating to vegetarian food and travel are particularly appropriate. In such cases, there would be a clear disclosure statement to this effect. Please note that I do not accept paid topic insertions or blog posts written by others on this blog.

I am also available to guest write articles and do food photography shoots for food magazines.

I have worked hard to build up My Diverse Kitchen and a relationship of trust with my readers and I will not compromise this. As such, I will endorse only those cookbooks/products or services that I believe, based on my experience, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

For questions about this blog or enquiries about writing cookbook or food product reviews, guest writing food articles or doing food shoots for magazines, please contact me at aparna[at]my diversekitchen[DOT]com.
