In a Nutshell

Through all the changes in my life, my love for cooking & food has remained constant. A relationship that started at a young age in a little town in South India. Now I want to share the beautiful, but less-known South Indian Cuisine.

The Whole Hog

It was my mother who showed me the magic of cooking. In X, a small town near X, my mother would prepare beautiful meals & though we weren’t wealthy we eat like kings & queens. She’d lured me in to the kitchen at age 10, we began slowly, but every time we cooked my passion grew & by age 12 I would often cook for the whole family - my toughest critics!

However, this romantic chapter with food was broken, but the story doesn't end. The need to find work abroad dominated & soon enough I moved to London, a huge shock to the system! I first worked as a nanny, but soon after, the working parents would ask me to cook not only for the children, but also for them. They threw lovely dinner parties for their friends & would ask me to cook. I feel blessed that I could still enjoy my passion - I suppose that is why food & cooking is such a lovely thing, it is always part of life. Though people may not always cook, they will always eat!

With my pop ups I want to share the beautiful food of South India. When people think of Indian, what they think of is food from the North - with curries based on onion & tomato, delicious! However, in the South our base is more delicate & tropical, Tamarind & Coconut form the base of our curries. Through my pop ups I want to share my passion & love for South Indian food; serving people dishes they haven't seen before, hidden gems of India - not just Tikka Masala & Vindaloo!
