Joya Roy

Joya is a tea lady and has spent over 25 years of her life in the tea estates of North Bengal and Assam. During her novice days in the kitchen, cooking was more of trial and error born out of a desperate need to put something presentable on the table. Soon she learnt that cooking was as much an art, as a science.


Joya is extremely fond of baking and considers it therapeutic. Baking brings immense pleasure, particularly when she shares her cakes, flans, biscuits and desserts with family and friends. The smile on their faces is both calming and rewarding. Joya says that it’s like creating magic in her kitchen – she starts with some basic ingredients like flour, butter, sugar and eggs which transform into so many different delightfully sinful dishes. Baking is her go to and the secret ingredient is always love!
