"I am a consultant by profession and a cook by passion... While I was always a foodie, my passion for cooking ignited when we were living in Australia, inspired by the diverse cuisines we found there. I believe my strongest suit is Indian food, especially street food from Bombay, where both of us grew up, but I still experiment with different cuisines from time to time. My wife and I love to travel, and having lived in India and Australia in past lives, we now call Toronto home. We love hosting dinners and enjoy meeting new people over a meal we have cooked, as it lets us share our love for cooking (and also finding out if we are any good at it!)"
