Born in Hyderabad, one of the capitals of royal indian cuisine, I came from a city deep in heritage, history and incredible food. I was brought up in the UK and discovered a passion for food from a very young age. When my friends were out playing football and on the Playstation, I was helping my mother and her close friends out in the kitchen (and by helping, I just mean eating!).
After a short stint in the city as a project manager, I decided to retrain at Le Cordon Bleu as a French Cuisine and Patisserie chef. I went on to experience the finest in michelin-star dining, working with chefs such as Claude Bosi from Hibiscus, Sat Bains and Heston Blumenthal (at The Fat Duck in Bray). I loved their focus on seasonality and the way they used their background as a key ingredient and inspiration. Its driven me to do the same with my food.
Following my heart, I then undertook a six month culinary journey through India, rediscovering traditional home recipes and finger-licking street food. I worked with The Oberoi Hotels and Resorts in Mumbai and Agra, learning traditional regional recipes that have been passed down through generations and applying them to the finest seasonal ingredients on offer. When I returned from India, I wanted to share these recipes with you in the form of a small plates Supperclub.
The food will showcase the best of home cooked dishes, street food and regional specialities that you may be pushed to find elsewhere. I would love for you to join me for a fantastic evening full of food. We'll be in a casual yet intimate setting at my home, overlooking the Thames in Canary Wharf.
