Get to know me better

Cooking is like painting. Just as there are only so many notes or colors, there are only so many flavors it’s how you combine them that sets you apart

What can I say I love food. My journey as a chef brought me from Mumbai to Auckland to Wellington and now to Christchurch and who knows where else I'll be going to. The thing I love most about food is the interaction between people. Whether that is cooking with friends or family, teaching someone to cook, or that feeling when they try your food. With 7 years' experience in the culinary industry and working at most of the big Hospitality companies in New Zealand, I am ready now to give people the pleasure of enjoying great meals at their place.
