Welcome to Deepa’s Kitchen!
This is the journey of Deepa, a hands-on mom of two young kids. A woman whose passion for cooking inspired by her foodie family with their unlimited demands for yummilicious food, gave her the opportunity to try out different cuisines and improve her culinary skills. With no professional background or help, this Home Chef and budding Entrepreneur has ventured into her own small time catering service.
She is the youngest amongst the three siblings and was born into the Kamat family from Mahim, Mumbai. She completed her early education from IES English Medium School (Hindu Colony) Dadar, followed by a Bachelor of Arts degree from Ramnarain Ruia College, Matunga.
An early marriage and early motherhood made her push aside her desire of doing something on her own. With two young kids, Deepa quickly got transformed into a typical housewife and a hands-on mom. The hordes of friends and relatives visiting them, molded this housewife into a Master Chef, making mouth-watering starters, curries and not to miss the main course. Veggies, Fish and Chicken filled the plates of the guests asking for more.
Her fun-loving nature, the scrumptious food cooked by her and the gracious host that she is, in no time made a place in people’s heart as well as their tummies. And that’s when it all began! At one such party, a mention from one of her friends who is a die-hard fan of her cooking and her kids who are her biggest critics, started it all. Whenever there was a heavenly dish served, it was like..Mom you should start your own kitchen. After her older child, her daughter graduated, and her son passed his Std 10th examinations, a lot of convincing, coaxing and boosting her morale by her children, got her to pursue her dreams.
And that was when it all began! This straight forward, fun loving, happy-go-lucky lady in early January 2019 took her very first plunge. She catered to a dear friend’s house warming for 25-30 people and the feedback she received for the food served was fantabulous. And since then there has been no looking back. It built up her confidence and she soon opened her own Kitchen under the name ‘Deepa’s Kitchen’. Her dream of making it on her own had taken a leap. She along with her helpers are one big team who make it happen.
Deepa always says “Never say No” and “Never give up on your Dreams, Live your dreams because you live only once, Kal kisne dekha hai!”
She moves ahead each day with new zeal and zest managing the show with loads of appreciation from happy foodies some of who are die-hard fans of her cooking and many more yet to come. 🙏🙏
