As a home that loves to eat, we hold food, and the people who prepare it, close to our hearts. I was drawn to food from the time I could reach the kitchen counter and was tutored by my mother. The love for food of my family motivated me and challenged me to become a cook. I always wanted to keep their love for food going on and hence it was a daunting task to try and create something different and unique and yet healthy food on a day to day basis. This pushed me to reinvent the wheel and try different flavors and combination just to produce a new yet unique dish every time. . I have been trained and have had sessions with India’s leading chefs. Have participated in various food fest in India and London and have won huge appreciation from people. The journey which started from a home is now a passion and keeps growing on a day to day basis.
