Welcome to a culinary journey that transcends borders and brings the authentic essence of Indian cuisine, alongside a tapestry of global flavors, right to your dining table. As a personal chef with a unique international flair, I specialize in crafting meals that are not just food but an experience—an amalgamation of stories, cultures, and tastes from around the world.
My Culinary Journey: From Bangalore to the World
My passion for cooking was kindled in the warmth of my family’s kitchen in Bangalore, India, where I was born and raised. From a very young age, I was irresistibly drawn to the culinary world, captivated not just by the flavors and dishes, but by the joy and laughter that filled our kitchen. Watching my grandma, mom, and aunts cook was a daily highlight, witnessing how they poured love into each dish and how they reveled in the act of cooking together.
I remember having a special small stool that my mom placed in the kitchen just for me. It was my exclusive spot where I could watch the magic happen without getting in the way—after all, I was known to be quite the mischievous one, eager to jump into the cooking action myself. By the age of 5, I already wanted to cook, mimic the techniques of my elders, and be part of the culinary creations that brought so much happiness to our home.
This early immersion in a culture that celebrates food as a cornerstone of life instilled in me not just a love for cooking, but an appreciation for the power of food to bring people together. My journey from those early days in Bangalore to professional kitchens around the world has been fueled by this foundational experience. It’s taught me that cooking is not just about preparing meals, but about crafting experiences that linger in memory, much like the laughter and joy that echoed in my family’s kitchen.
Born from a passion for cooking and an insatiable curiosity about different cultures, my culinary path has been anything but ordinary. Over the years, I have lived and worked in 8 diverse countries, each stop adding new recipes, techniques, and flavors to my cooking repertoire. From the bustling streets of India, where I honed my skills in traditional Indian cuisine, to the sophisticated kitchens of world-renowned chefs across the globe, my journey has been a testament to the power of food in connecting people and cultures.
I bring to your table not just meals, but the essence of countless homes and professional kitchens where I’ve had the privilege to learn. Each dish I prepare is infused with authenticity, learned first-hand from both home chefs and culinary masters alike.
