Please describe your business: What is your elevator pitch? Who is your ideal customer?
A private chef in the Hamptons, NYC and NJ with a love for tradition and a taste for the new. Tanya has a line of chutneys and cookies. As a chef, she specializes in multiple cuisines – Indian, Italian, French, Greek, Mediterranean, Turkish, Latin, and Pan American Cuisines. My ideal customer is someone who wants a unique experience of having someone come to their home and cook the cuisine of their choice – someone who wants to enjoy awesome food and service in the comfort of their home and doesn’t want to wait in line for a table.

Making food lists to shopping for groceries to chefing to baking to managing social media to gaining wholesale accounts for my chutneys and cookies line.
How has seeing an allergist (visiting Hudson Allergy) helped you be more productive in your profession?
It has helped me maintain my asthma so I can breathe better and able to work in the kitchen at a fast pace and multitask without running out of breath!
What advice do you want to give to anyone reading this?
Do NOT settle for average food and service! We live in a world where we are fortunate to enjoy foods, spices and ingredients from all over the world. We don’t have to visit India to have authentic Indian Food to go to Italy to enjoy great Pasta – we can enjoy it right here in the comfort of our home!
What is your favorite thing about NYC?
That everything is so accessible – I can walk to the best parks to my doctor’s visits to a Starbucks! That it is a melting pot that brings all of us together from different parts of the world with amazing foods and traditions to share!
