About the Chef
Sharmila, a storyteller, and writer, enjoys telling stories from her kitchen too. For the last 30 plus years, she has been writing and talking about environmental challenges of the times — food, agriculture, and festivity being her favorite topic of storytelling. From writing reports for various international and national organizations to writing for children on Ganga and digging in local recipes, is what gives her happiness.
Luchee, is her quest for healthy, authentic, traditional Bengali cuisine, that nourishes the soul and body. She has learned from her mother and mother-in-law, the value of eating seasonal and fresh. Through Luchee she also talks about her educational tours in remote rural India, where she has honed her culinary skills, sitting beside the open fire in Spiti camps, or in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and other parts of the country, sharing bread with locals and hearing their stories. Having grown up in Lucknow that special Awadhi twist comes naturally in what she conjures in her kitchen. She has been doing food pop-ups at homes to acquaint her diners, with the importance of food and festivity and the link between the two. Digging out recipes from yore is her favorite topic of writing. Through her specialized catering, she tells stories that bind and bond.
