Chettinad house - Elegance and art

I’m a Culinary Institute of America Alumni, and have honed my skills by training under some of the finest chefs and dining establishments. A wine aficionado and associate with some of the premier vineyards in Napa and Sonoma counties in their taste panel. In my quest to learn and explore new culture, cuisine and produce I have travelled across Asia, Middle East and the Americas.

 This trip would add value to my culinary repertoire for a much deeper and hands on understanding of Italian culture and cuisine. Currently I work in the Middle East based in Sharjah, the neighboring Emirate to Dubai. I head culinary product research and innovations for the leading food product manufacturing company in the GCC. I use my free time to blog about food and have started to explore the world of food photography and food styling. In a nut shell I live and love food and travel. (www.foodnflavors.com)
