    This podcast is for everyone who is figuring it out, here we get entrepreneurs, creators, artists who made it big and are still figuring out what’s next.

    How do I introduce this guest
    Should I introduce him as an entrepreneur, chef, or content creator or as the most common name in every Indian kitchen

    He started his journey as a food producer in Masterchef India. Breaking all the stereotypes about a guy working in the kitchen he started your food lab sharing his yummiest recipes. From being the only guy who opted for home science in school to becoming every home maker's go-to recipe channel, he has come a long way
