RUSHINA MUNSHAW GHILDIYAL, 35 Food consultant and writer
Food consultant and writer Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal believes that food is the best icebreaker to relate to people. This belief pushed her in the direction of food consultation and blogging as a career.
BLOG IT ON She earned her master’s degree in Animation from the ZED Institute of creative arts in 1999, but wasn’t keen on pursuing it as a serious career. Then, in 2006, her blog, A Perfect Bite became so popular that she was able to take it up as a full-time job. Today, with over 1,200 followers it gets 900 hits a day. Ghildiyal’s company A Perfect Bite, named after her blog, offers food consultancy to restaurants and hospitality companies in India and abroad. Her Mumbai-based clientele includes Godrej Nature’s Basket and Amore Gelato among others.
FOOD TRAILS In 2009 Ghildiyal partnered with her sister who runs the travel company Beacon Holidays. Ghildiyal organizes trips called Masala Trails twice a year in India wherein travellers are introduced to the lesser known regional delicacies of cities like Cochin, Rajasthan, Goa and Agra.
