About me

meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeI’m a Civil Engineer by Profession.I am also a Chef and food writer. I love home cooking and have infectious enthusiasm for authentic Indian cuisine. In 2008, I was a winner on the BBC 2 programme, Step Up to the Plate, which challenges the talents of upcoming chef against Paul Rankin and John Burton Race.

Having spent my childhood eating authentic Indian food, My cooking style is simple, authentic and flavoursome. My experimental style incorporates trying new techniques and methods to provide my own twist on traditional Indian recipes.

I teach at a number of cookery schools in Essex and Suffolk and showcases my signature dishes and unique Indian cooking at food fairs and festivals across East Anglia.
