Friday - - FOODSHALA -

32, Abu Dhabi-based house­wife

I re­ally en­joy ex­per­i­ment­ing with dishes, par­tic­u­larly desserts, so when I heard about Food­shala I de­cided to give it a try.

in­vited many of my friends and rel­a­tives to par­tic­i­pate in the au­di­tion with me be­cause I be­lieve cook­ing should be fun and a fam­ily ac­tiv­ity.

I made a snack and a dessert – chicken rolls and av­o­cado mousse. The judges loved my prepa­ra­tion so much they stood up and ap­plauded me! That was the best mo­ment I’ve ever had and I will never for­get it. They told me on the spot that I’d be on the show. I was truly over­joyed. I’ve al­ways been con­fi­dent of my culi­nary abil­i­ties, but get­ting an en­dorse­ment from pro­fes­sion­als is re­ally great.

Be­ing on a show such as Food­shala is a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence. I am look­ing for­ward to the cook-offs.
