Deepthi - I Always Wanted To Start An Authentic Village Theme Restaurant Which Portrays The Telugu Nativity (Food Blogger, India)

 It's been 3 years since I have started a Page on Instagram and I used to share pictures of food I taste whenever I use to visit any place.

1. Tell us about your background and journey.

I am 24 years old, Currently pursuing my Master’s degree in BITS.

It's been 3 years since I have started a Page on Instagram and I used to share pictures of food I taste whenever I use to visit any place.

But 2020 lockdown is when I started learning cooking and because there was no scope to visit restaurants then I started sharing recipes on my page.

Then no looking back. There were a few ups and down I struggled to reach but I never gave up. I only focused on what needs to be done to be successful. 

2. What led you to take up this career path?

My Dream of starting a Themed restaurant before I turn 30! I always wanted to start an Authentic Village theme restaurant that portrays the Telugu nativity, and that's the main reason I started sharing my reviews on my page. As of now, this is not my career path, it is just that I love eating and cooking I started sharing it on a platform

3. What does your typical day looks like?

It’s not the same every day. If I am uploading a breakfast recipe I would be busy in the morning from 7 am shooting and editing it and I attend my Master’s classes

And if its a lunch or snack recipe My day starts from 8 am, attending classes and finishing up the assignment work At least before 1 pm and get back to cooking, shooting and editing 

4. Does one's approach change when cooking professionally and at home?

Not really, there might be a difference in the way the dish is made but according to my, the approach should be the same. At home we want our family to be satisfied and happy after tasting food, when cooking professionally at a restaurant we want the customer to be happy and leave positive feedback.

5. Is there a dish you particularly associate yourself with?

I make sure to associate with every dish I try. But if it has to be only one dish then “Kottimeera Kodi Pulao”/ “Coriander Chicken Pulao”

6. Can cooking be learned at culinary schools or natural talent is required?

I haven’t learned cooking at culinary schools. I use to observe how Mother does it and I have started experimenting by myself, and yes natural talent is required to decide the proportions at times 

7. Which is your favourite book and why? 

The Power of your Subconscious mind by Dr Joseph Murphy. This book plays an important role during low times. It helps me to stay positive and focus on what I need.
