I am an internationally-published food, travel and culture writer based in Mumbai, India. Formerly the Chief Copy and Features Editor at BBC Good Food India and a food columnist for NDTV, I have written for BBC Travel, BBC Culture, CNN Travel, The Guardian, Saveur, Literary Hub, Condé Nast Traveller India, Food 52, Serious Eats, Roads & Kingdoms and others. My writing has also appeared in anthologies by Lonely Planet and Fodor’s.
I’ve been invited to several panel discussions, including those by AVID Learning (Multipolis Mumbai: Women Writers and the City) and Paper Planes. You can also hear me as a guest on the IVM Podcast Not Just Dhansak With Bawi Bride.
I am interested in exploring the anthropology of Indian food and culture through a postcolonial prism, with a special focus on my community, the Parsis.
