35, homemaker from Dubai
I have a passion for Italian food so when I saw the advertisement for Foodshala in Friday, I knew what I would be making – an Italian platter of mushroom tagliatelle with a chicken Caesar salad and a meatzza (grainless pizza where the crust is made of ground beef). The last was my trump card.
I had taken along the Friday Golden ticket so I could get on to the fast track. Alexio Pasquali, one of the judges, was especially happy to see my Italian spread. TV host Gaurav Tandon loved it, too, and I then knew I stood a chance. I was so excited when I was selected as a finalist and I received the Friday apron. It was such an honour!
I’m going to give my all to see that I do well. I’m a regular home cook but I want to show the world I can do more than just dal chawal.
