I’ve straddled two countries for over 40 years. With one foot firmly planted in the States and one rooted in India, I maintain my balance through researching, developing, and cooking both cuisines. I hail from a Punjabi household which is in the Northern region of India, the land of Butter Chicken and Channa Masala. My love for all things culinary started at the age of 7 at my mother’s side, rolling out dough and learning to make the perfect Roti. From there on, I’ve been on an adventurous journey in researching, learning, and developing recipes from around the world. I left the corporate world 8 years ago, and have been focused on turning my passion for food into a career. Since then I’ve started a small catering business and have worked as a private cook for several clients. I currently work for a specialty food store where I get to play with all of our new ingredients and have developed recipes to be used in our demonstration area. These last 8 years have brought me the most joy. I love to cook and feed people.
So grab your culinary passport. No need to apply for a visitor’s visa for this adventure. Let’s cook together over a cup of Masala Chai, and learn about the fascinating world of Indian cuisine and its history. I’ll show you how to prepare everything from village foods, street cart dishes, and also classic Indian favorites. We’ll laugh, eat, and be merry.
