Welcome to Fruitastic!™


Mohana R Gill or Rose Gill as she is affectionately known was born in Burma, now called Myanmar. She has a Bachelors degree from the University of Rangoon and an MBA from the University of Toronto. She was on the staff of the University of Rangoon till the military overthrew the Government in 1963 wherein she left for Malaysia.

In 1965 she was an economics lecturer at the University of Malaya. Mohana retired from University when her first child was born in order to concentrate her efforts on the upbringing of her children. She travels extensively and maintains homes in Australia, India and the United States. She is widely known amongst friends and relatives as the travelling Gourmet and has graced the kitchens of many a friend and relative in far reaching and exotic locations worldwide. Fruitastic was her first endeavour into the world of publishing and this was followed closely by Vegemania, her second offering. Both books have met with much critical acclaim and enthusiastic response.

Mohana has a passion for cooking and she has an experimental attitude to the kitchen. She mixes the old with the new and has been serving inventive and original recipes for over four decades. This vast reservoir of experience, combined with a passion for health and wellness has led to the two publications. A passion for entertaining and flair for the culinary arts have inexorably led to these two superlative publications.
