I’m Priya, a Chappaqua resident, mom of three and I love to cook and eat delicious food! I’m from London, but moved to New York about 18 months ago.
I started Aroli’s Kitchen out of sheer gluttony and passion for cooking. When I say passionate, I mean to tell you, food is almost an obsession for me! I read cookery books like they are novels. I’m always thinking about recipes, ingredients and what and when will be my next meal, and I’m never happier than when I’m cooking away in my kitchen on a wet Sunday afternoon.
Previously a retail buyer for a major food grocer in the UK, I left the Corporate World behind to follow my foodie dream. I’m a Londoner, but I’m originally from India and I’ve also been lucky enough to travel to many countries around the World. My food takes my Corporate experiences and my travel influences, adds locally sourced products, and creates delicious, exciting, healthy, fresh food. Oh, and by the way, it’s all Vegetarian.
The food we create is focused on flavor – fresh, colorful, full of herbs and spices and interesting ingredients. I’m always looking to food trends to find ways to make more spectacular Vegetarian and Vegan food. I’m not here to convert you to vegetarianism, just to show you that it can be delicious, healthy and satisfying to skip the meat once in a while.
