Amandip has been cooking since the age of nine - taught by her mother and encouraged by her father to trust her instincts and connect to food by sight and smell. A former stylist and writer, Amandip's career took her from The Times to become deputy fashion editor of Conde Nast Traveler.
Combining her lifelong love of food and design, she co- founded Lotus Events, one of London's most fashionable party-food companies, followed by Chilli Hot Chocolate, the online foodie emporium. She also teaches Indian cookery, from simple modern cuisine to full Indian feasts. She lives in London.
