I have always been a food lover. That I loved cooking, I discovered at 16. My mother would neatly organize recipes in her cookbook. The pictures in that book were not only colourful, but would make my mouth water.

With an aim to satisfy my taste buds, I grabbed the recipe and dashed into the kitchen. I followed every word and gram of the recipe – my Bible. At the end of my first stint in the kitchen, I had pretty much surprised myself and my family.

Since then, the kitchen has been like a temple for me. It’s here where I find peace with myself – a certain satisfaction. I have learnt that cooking needs a teaspoon of understanding, a tablespoon of passion, and a dash of love to create, serve, and eat. When we say ‘simple cooking’, we mean it does take only a little effort to turn that appetizing dish pictured in the recipe into reality.

Recipes at Cukzy have been written in a comprehensive and simple manner. Most recipes are authentic, from the kitchens of home chefs. There are also recipes re-created by me and my team through experimentation, to add a zest to this art. At Cukzy, we would love to help you bring a variety of flavours to your table, and liven up your kitchen with the aromas of different cuisines.

Cukzy is a reflection of my love for food and my passion to cook. As for all of you who believe cooking is a mountaineering task, best left to the experts, here’s a little message – start cooking with Cukzy.

I am sure your journey in the kitchen would mirror mine!
