I was born in Pune (small town in India), grew up in Hong Kong & have taken the liberty without any regrets of calling HK my home.
Growing up in HK is a privilege and you quickly take into account the availability of all cultures and society that strongly prevail. My love and passion for people and their cultures were prevalent at a very early age, hence the desire and journey for growth & inspiration in the knowledge of food commenced with great fervour.
It is easy to fall in love with HK, the colours and smells in a wet market laden with fresh produce, seafood, poultry, meat, spices, herbs, all varieties of staples such as wood ear mushroom, moss, fungi……to mention a few. The choices offered are enough to inspire and educate even the most amateur palette, to say the least.
The gift of hospitality resonated strongly in my heart and I recognized my calling. I wanted to give back to the community that had instilled the joy in my soul. I wanted to create, teach and share every morsel with all those of like mind searching for food that tantalizes the palette, warmed the hearts, brought healing to the soul and families around the table! I wanted to ignite their senses just as mine too have been provoked.
Thank you friends both old and new for your investment in my story.
