MEENU GUPTA Know your chef


I was born and brought up in India and arrived in Holland in 1999. 

My first love and passion is cooking. I particularly enjoy experimenting with new cuisines from all over the world. Food has also enabled me to enchant my family, relatives and friends and make new ones the world over.

I come from a family, who are passionate about cooking. My mother, who is a great vegetarian cook, has been my guide and the inspiring factor since my early years. She believes that the important ingredient of any recipe is love. With food, as in life, you take out what you put in. I always cook with passion, from my heart by using my hands generously.

I hope to introduce you all to real Indian food.
