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.

The smile on their faces is both calming and rewarding. Joya says that it’s like creating magic in your kitchen – you start 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!
