KAVERI UTREJA 33
JUST LIKE THAT, ZIRAKPUR Just like That
Kaveri Utreja left her comfortable job at Bank of Maharashtra to start her own venture in 2015 in Zirakpur. Specialising in healthy chocolates, tea cakes and cookies made using oatmeal, dry fruits and whole breads, Just Like That (JLT) now delivers across the country with commercial kitchens both in Mumbai and Zirakpur. This MCom graduate from Panjab University, Chandigarh (2007), learnt her baking skills at the Academy of Pastry Arts, Gurgaon, and regularly keeps herself updated with short term courses.
Seeing her mother bake and cook since childhood, Utreja was naturally drawn to baking. “My family has always been supportive, however, encouragement by patrons is what made me think big,” she says. JLT now boasts of clients ranging from film personalities to corporate biggies.
This chef’s USP is healthy gift hampers. Insisting that healthy ingredients that she uses in her products drive consumers’ choice, she will be offering special Keto gift hampers this Diwali. “Personalisation has also become big. Customers now want to add their own signature to your cooking and baking.”
