MasterChef contestant 2013, food fanatic, owner of Neha’s Indian inspired food range and can dance and cook at the same time!

I am a food fanatic! Food is my religion and the gourmet local markets my church! I was born and bred in India but now call Australia home. My cuisine blends the two cultures, creating fabulous new fusions. I also love an audience and people have told me, that if a picture tells a thousand words – wait until you see Neha’s face, you’ll need a hundred thousand!

My father was a doctor in the army and we were transferred every couple of years to different parts of India, so I was brought up all over my homeland! I was exposed to different cultures, languages and food every time we moved. Not knowing the regional language, I used food to meet people and learn more about the locals.

I came to Australia to complete my postgraduate studies and to taste what life had to offer on the other side of the world! Australia has helped me go from a poor international student, to a successful career woman, to being on Australia’s MasterChef 2013! It is time now for me, the dancing cook to show the world, that India has so much more to offer than just butter chicken & korma!

Post MasterChef Australia 2013, my new Indian inspired food venture, Neha’s is dedicated to matching amazing Indian flavours with fabulous Aussie ingredients to make palates dance!

So if you are a keen foodie, cook or someone who just wants to live life like a maharaja, come bust a move or two with me on my culinary dance floor! All you will need to bring is a great spirit and a massive appetite!
