My culinary journey started in London U.K. and ventures through Paris, Italy and Switzerland, before settling into a nice New Jersey suburban home in 2016, complete with two children and a PTO volunteer card!
After my marriage in 2007, when we moved to London I routinely felt homesick and craved the food my mother used to prepare back home in India. My mother, a culinary arts teacher, shared with me a few fusion recipes that combined the best of the west and the east and soon I was experimenting with recipes using local ingredients on my own. My husband’s job gave me an opportunity to travel and live across various countries in Europe and finally migrating to the United States in 2012. As a first-generation Indian immigrants, it was very important for both me and my husband to set an example for our children that America is indeed a land of opportunities and you can achieve your dreams if you worked really hard for it! So we decided to call this country our home and I started my catering business in 20 13, as I always had a very strong desire to run a business that was focused on food and and healthy cooking I was dishing out everything from appetizers to desserts for small to medium sized parties (and successfully winning the hearts of my clients!).
Soon, though, the strain and pressure of raising two young children with a husband (who worked around the clock!) took its toll. I spent a lot of time delving into the what would be next and why-- exploring the fears, and the uncertainties. I had to look for the answers, and they didn’t come easily. At that time, I won a scholarship for a yoga teacher training course, and that’s when I felt I started to heed to my inner calling. I was no longer “suffocating”, and I discovered my true purpose was in helping others. The exposure to many diverse international cultures provided the impetus to create a course on the art of fusion, and fueled the desire to meld the teachings of yoga, food, and spirituality into a program that would also enlighten others.
With the help of my mother we created our unique fusion recipes. They are a ‘mother’s recipes for her daughter’ which allowed me to design a very easy, healthy, highly nutritious, organic life for myself and my family. I learned about physiology and the anatomy of the body, which helped me sync my mind, body and soul through yoga. My skin started to lighten up as the stress slipped away and Prana (energy) struck me like lightning. I was finally breathing life into every cell of my body again. As I unlearned my old ways, I adapted to blend our consumption and mindful movements into new ways of living a healthier, peaceful life. Yoga became my telescope to see all distant visions very clearly and closely.
Food, love, + yoga helped me discover the answers--to reconnect, rise and shine.
The divine light and sacredness within me was unknown to me until I adapted this holistic life approach of How, What, and When. This made me realize that if I was able to do it myself, I could help others reset, recharge and revitalize!
