Hi I'm Apoorva,
I am professionally trained chef who has been cooking in 5 star hotel kitchens for the last 15 years and worked with many international hotel chains.
I grew up in a multicultural family with foodie parents and family who were adventurous in trying different cuisines and quickly adapted to their food habits. An after school pastime would be watching a cooking show on TV. I was in 7th grade when I ventured into a professional kitchen to learn a popular cottage cheese dish from the restaurant chef . I knew then that I wanted to grow up to be a chef and have never looked back since then. I have worked across 3 different continents and 8 cities to hone my culinary skills and techniques and I always say I am a foodie first and a chef second !
I love cooking because it makes me happy and gives me a canvas to express my love for food. I am excited to cook for FoodSt because its another way that I can bring a smile to someone's face when they eat my food, it's another way to share my love of cooking with others.
