Hi, I am Meenal. I'm a travel enthusiast, a movie buff and a cricket fan all wrapped in one. I love to capture moments through my words. Writing is my happy space, it has been a great way of putting all my thoughts out and feel liberated.


  1. Such an magnificant and intricate series! The actors were incredible showing such emotion without uttering a word. Love, family, cultures,religion, sickness and resilience were woven throughout the story Bravo especially to Zoe and Eugenio-a pro and a rising star!

  2. This was such a great show. Heart wrenching while being full of so much love. I fell in love with all of the characters, especially Amy and Lino. He and Zoe did a phenomenal job.

  3. Absolutely a wonderful series – best I’ve ever seen. Honestly I cried loads because it was so relatable. Eugenio and Zoe were wonderful and the story was told with such tenderness

    • What an amazing love story! A loving and tragic emotional journey. The chemistry between the two actors was phenomenal. They truly portrayed a couple, if given the chance, that would have grown old together and been blissfully happy and in love, until the end. One could only dream of sharing a bond like that. Of course I cried like a baby. Applause to Zoe and Eugenio for bringing that much raw emotion to the screen!! It was so believable.

  4. I always say, families are complicated, as is clearly shown in this series…good story, good actors, good scenery and good food!

  5. Bravo. Well done story, film and acting. I love the characters. Cried as much as I did when I watched the titanic and the notebook,

  6. Such a beautiful yet sad love story. I cried a lot during episodes 6, 7 and 8. It is truly a story of love, forgiveness and family. By far my favorite series on Netflix this year. Job well done by everyone involved

  7. Brilliant series, I was hooked from the start. The scenery shots were amazing and the actors were perfectly suited and very believable in their intense love for each other. I loved the difference in cultures which I thought were portrayed brilliantly by everyone and it made you think and realise that people can come together which ever background your from with patience and understanding. I was in bits at the end so sad but loved the whole series.

  8. This series was adapted perfectly but also the acting is superb. The emotion and love displayed was right in point. The acting of the Sicilian parents was touching. The scenes in hospitals realistic. Zoe Saldana is excellent as always. The actor Lino, and chemistry was believable. Family members were annoying and charming… one of the best series….

  9. The beautiful food and setting were rich characters in the series. The viewer learned about Italian recipes, seasonings and the camera showed the bold and succulent life of the food. Leo and Amy’s love was tender and authentic as they navigated around people and family who had issues with culture and religion. The viewer sees they simply loved each other and this always directed their course. The camera allows the viewer to see Amy and Leo’s love, because it takes the time to capture their eye contact and pauses. So, we see when the character is understanding what is said or when the discourse needs to marinate. When Leo tells Amy he was hurt, because she brought her family to his restaurant to meet her date, he does this with such tender emotion and sincerity. The camera lingers on Amy; we see Leo’s profile, and she finally gets it and sees this man’s sincerity. Well done! I cried and cried, because these full bodied characters grabbed me! The display of family and diversity was also fantastic! I hope the Netflix series “From Scratch” wins awards!

  10. Absolutely incredible, I thought it would be another love story but the acting by everyone especially the two leads is brilliant, so sad and poignant. Congratulations on the whole series.

  11. Hydrad movies like this because I’m emotionally contained human being and this brings out every new onevery nuance of emotion that most of us try to hide or keep in check. I called my daughter sobbing telling her and her I was angry at her for having me watch such an incredible series because she knows her mother Does not like to wear her emotions on her sleeve. It brought memories back of people I have lost and the love that I have felt from others throughout the years. Absolutely one of the best shows that I have seen on Netflix and I’m veryou know on Netflix and a very long time period Brava Brava fantastico!

  12. I have not watched this 6 times!!!!! I am obsessed ! Lino and Amy’s love is what I wish for. I cried and laughed all six times .

  13. Correction, I have now watched this story 6 times, I keep replaying the scene where she wakes up and runs to the window and sees Link standing in the pouring rain, the runs into his arms ! OMG !!!

  14. Madly in love with the show . Watched it at least 5 times . Beautifully written & acted . Lino is a divine personality. The actor I’m sure also ! Love it !

  15. I couldn’t stop watching! Best story since The Notebook! The characters were superb! The emotions were SO real! What a Love Story! The love, family and hardships were Real! LOVED IT!!

  16. I love love love From Scratch, I love Lino and Amy. I went through every emotion, even after I finished watching, I was still crying, talking on the phone telling my friend about it.

  17. Very realistic , I’m a retired. Nurse and was so true about Hosp s and doctors not explaining tests and treatments and medical language to pets and their loved ones . This is the essence of saying the marriage. Vow , in. Sickness @ in. Health. Till death do we part .This is. Life. ! A beautiful love story and loved seeing. Italy. Great actors.
