After finishing her diploma in French patisserie Pooja travelled extensively across India to satisfy her food curiosity : where exactly all these amazing tasting ingredients come from? how are they grown? who grows them?

On this journey Pooja came across lots of ingredients which she dint knew grew in India and are indigenous to our land. She was just used to hearing French with lavender, Belgium with chocolate, California with almonds. After studying permaculture her connection with local foods grew even deeper and she wanted to bring all the deliciousness she discovered in small pockets of India to the mainstream food market. Mountain Muse is Pooja’s way of sharing her travel stories, through a language that she understands the most, the language of food!
