When French technique meets desi flavours and Pooja’s genius, the result is delishhh.
We caught her in her favourite space, the kitchen where she does all kinds of experiments, and don’t be shocked if I tell you that she doesn’t succeed all the time. Pooja is also very well known in the film fraternity and she is favourite of the celebs. From Salman Khan to Sonam Kapoor, she has made special cakes for all the A-listers in the industry. She not only shows us how to make the delicious chai cake but even talks about her failures that have brought her where she is today.
Did you know that this chef once opted for law school ? But naturally didn’t last there for more than two weeks. She always loved to bake and going to law school just made her realise what she really wants to do and that was the beginning of her dream. Pooja not only bakes, she is an entrepreneur and she has her own podcast show called NoSugarCoat where you can hear her talking to some of the most well known chefs from all over the world. And if you are wondering why it’s called NoSugarCoat, well, this girl believes in speaking her mind and everything is out in the open, no sugar coat.
