Arvinda Chauhan loves to cook! As an artist, she uses spices like a painter’s palette, cooking up endless Indian and international meals in her home every day. No matter how busy, she makes the time to cook, taking simple, seasonal and wholesome ingredients from her kitchen and garden, cooking up an incredible array of mouth-watering healthy meals using Arvinda’s spice blends, which helps her to create meals easily and supremely delicious!
She cooks with love and passion and believes that this positive energy will transfer to loved ones, making the kitchen the most scared and welcoming part of the home. Fresh flowers, soft music (and disconnecting from electronic devices) creates a peaceful and harmonious environment to enjoy a home-cooked meal. She believes sharing wholesome cooked meals with loved ones and others is the best gift you can give, nourishing others with good health, joy, wellness and delicious flavours.
Spices are Mother Nature’s medicine chest and Arvinda believes you are healing yourself inside and out anytime you are cooking with spices. Through meditation and yoga, she sends good wishes and gratitude to people around the world.
