Born in Jodhpur, Rajasthan, to an Indian Air Force officer, I have had the good fortune to traverse the scenic landscapes and experience the vibrant cultures of this continent-sized country India. Through my cooking classes, I aim to offer an experience that is local, real, fun and teaches you skills that you can replicate in your home. I started teaching in my home studio in 2013. Today after 6 years, I have hosted over 6000 guests from around the world! I pride myself on the fact that I have consistently been rated as a top host from Airbnb (4.99/5) to Goggle (4.9/5) to Facebook (5/5). I am the one & only recommended cooking class in New Delhi in 'Lonely Planet India'. I am also featured in 'Lonely Planet Food Trails', 'DK Eyewitness' and other local & International publications.
