“It was a fun experience to be a part of the latest Bollywood film Ki and Ka, and creating all the food dishes showcased in the movie is a journey to be cherished. Watching the movie together with the team and looking at the delicious results and our name in the credits was worth the hard work that Nitin Tandon Food Styling Company put into.

Cooking is an art. It doesn’t matter, if a man chooses to adopt this piece of skill or a woman; even if it means cooking at home for your loved ones. There’s no harm in making your family members happy by creating and serving them appetizing dishes on a daily basis. It’s equally worthy of earning money for the household.

I’m sharing one of the dishes we made for the actors, Kareena Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor for one of their first meets in a restaurant.” So, here goes:
