Award-winning artisan creating authentic Indian meals with fresh produce
Mandira moved to the UK in 1998. She then spent the next 17 years working as a Management Consultant but complaining bitterly about not getting “proper” Indian food until an exasperated friend asked her to put her “money where her mouth was”.
In 2014, her then current role disappeared and after an “Oh, now what do I do” moment, she decided to follow her heart and do something which her parents would heartily disapprove of.
And so Mandira’s Kitchen was born, first offering cookery lessons and themed pop up Supper Clubs.
Gluten and preservative free, with vegan options, Mandira's Kitchen now provides event catering from their 400 year old converted cowshed in the beautiful UK countryside.
Mandira's Kitchen creates delicious meals using fresh produce, family recipes and lots of love.
Their meals contain absolutely no preservatives or unpronounceable bits and every dish comes with a personal story.
Mandira's Kitchen enjoys supporting events because it enables them to meet further businesses, listen to inspirational speakers, bounce ideas and collaborate to find new ways of working.
In the short space of time that Mandira’s Kitchen has been around, it has been established as a much loved local business, firmly entrenched in the hearts, taste buds and indeed wonderful farm shops of the local community.
Runners Up in the 2015 and 2016, Surrey Life Food and Drink Awards, this little business continues to grow and follow its dream of serving authentic, home-style food to its lovely customers.
After six months of creating its first freezer meal, much to its delight, Mandira’s Kitchen has picked up its first little star the Great Taste Awards 2017.
Over the last 2 years, hundreds of people and the occasional odd celebrity or two have dined with Mandira’s Kitchen, be it at 200 people gala sit down dinners, innumerable weddings, two-person intimate anniversary celebrations, themed supper clubs and so on.
