CHENNAI

I wanted to do something nice for my boyfriend for his birthday, so I asked Chef Payal to come over and help me make a home-made three-course dinner for him. She went all out, brought all the equipment and ingredients, designed a great menu and even helped me decorate my house so that it looked perfect! The whole experience was so much fun and educational and the dinner was absolutely delicious! Chef Payal is an amazing chef who is truly excited by food. If you ever need help in the culinary department, be it for a fancy dinner at home, to a party for 20, she’s the one to call!
