I am a Designer and an Artist by profession. Cooking, baking, photography and styling is an extension of my creative self, another medium of expression. Cooking and Plating was no different from painting for me. Playing with colours on plate, using different textures, composition in photography was all that I had learnt as a student, which I am showcasing using food as a medium. I love everyday cooking and how it can be made exciting. Kitchen is not only about food. I not only respect the food but also the waste we generate while cooking. I am a firm believer of composting and I make sure my kitchen generates as less waste as possible.
