How did it all start? Share your culinary journey with us
My culinary journey began at home as I enjoyed reading interesting cookbooks. My favourite was this Chinese cuisine book with pictures and ingredients really fascinated me as a child. Noticing my passion for cooking, my family allowed me to cook Sunday breakfasts for everyone and I loved cooking dosas and omelettes for them. My love for cooking eventually helped me pursue hotel management at Institute of Hotel Management (IHM) where I learned that kitchen life is fun and satisfying. This eventually helped me secure my first job, where with the help of a few inspirational Chefs, I felt at home and found the comfort zone of my life.
