I was born in Diu and brought up in Goa. I can speak fluent Portuguese apart from Hindi, Konkani, Marathi and English. I have worked for more than twenty years in the Indian Customs Department. I am married to Mukund who is working as an Asst Commissioner in Indian GST Department. I have two lovely children. My son Anuj is an Engineer and MBA working with a tech company and my daughter Nikita is pursuing her Master's in CS from California.
I am a passionate cook. Over the years, I have built my skills into not only cooking Goan Cuisine but also regional Indian Cuisine apart from baking breads and cakes. Having a keen interest in Cooking and with a strong backing and ideas coming from my husband and children, I finally started my kitchen journey in the year 2011 by teaching and extending cooking classes, workshops and culinary tours to the travelers visiting Goa from all over the world. I resigned from the Indian Customs and gave my cooking passion full time and also converted it into a full time job. I am loving it.
I love the fact that I meet travelers from different parts of India as well the world. There is so much of culture exchange and camaraderie over interactive culinary workshop and cooking classes.
I mainly focus on Goan and Indian regional cuisine. Over the years of experience I understand what the travelers look forward and also over the exchange of mails I customise the class accordingly to the taste and palate of the travelers.
I love to teach and feel satisfied when I see the intense smile and satisfaction on the faces of the travelers.
Celebrate the Joy of Cooking is the tag line which I would like to share.
