Meet The Chef

Shalini grew up in Calcutta, India, where her mother was a well-known cook, holding classes every week. She loved watching her cook, and helping her too.


Over the last few years, while cooking and creating recipes (with her kids, Maya and Krish, and her husband, Mike acting as sous chefs), she often had friends taste test, and many of them expressed their desire to have her cook a meal for them and this led to the birth of Shalini's Kitchen.

Shalini brings her traditional homestyle Indian food to your home through Bollywood style cooking class parties or private party orders.


Her cooking classes are a full of fun, with Bollywood music, tons of conversation and lots of chopping, stirring and tasting.  She focuses on traditional home cooked Indian recipes and her classes are limited to the New York City area.
