I was born in East India where food is a celebration. Brought up in a traditional family, I learnt cooking from Mother, Grandmother and other ladies within the family.
Cooking is my passion and I love cooking for people. I lived in various cities in India and spent a significant part of my life in a metropolitan environment. Through this, I had the experience of sharing different cooking styles with other friends from various part of India. I came to Krakow with my husband and one child 12 years ago. Here, I honed my European cuisine cooking skills by sharing and cooking for various international cooking clubs at Krakow. I shortly worked as food adviser to an Indian restaurant in Krakow operated by a Polish acquaintance. My knowledge of cooking has matured over the years and I have adapted the all-Indian menu that I know and love, to the local taste; for getting the best of eating experience from Indian authentic food.
