My love of cooking came at a very young age. Saturday morning cartoons alongside the fried egg sandwich I made myself before my parents woke up, was a personal ritual. I would get excited for childhood sleepovers because it meant that I can bake funfetti cupcakes.
So when I started feeling unfulfilled at my corporate job a few years out of college, I began pondering what I really wanted to do in life...the natural progression was to go to Culinary school in the hopes of doing what I love to do every day. After graduating with highest honors from The Institute of Culinary Education in Culinary Arts and a few NYC-based jobs (Mario Batali's Lupa & Balthazar Bakery), gaining both savory and pastry experience, AMR Catering was born - and does it all.
I currently reside in Philadelphia with my husband & business partner extraordinaire, Saurabh, and our dog Roland aka Rollie.
AMR Catering is your go-to caterer for showers, cocktail parties, engagements and weddings. We specialize in miniature Indian-American fusion desserts, both dessert bars and party favors. Our services offer our clients a completely customizable client experience - no two menus are alike.
Born and raised by a highly-skilled chef aka mom, I learned a lot about cooking - more so, putting love into your food. With my cultured upbringing and professional training, the goal of AMR Catering is to take what you know and love about both American and Indian flavors and staples, and heighten them to another level - fusing flavors into a creative culinary experience.
Everything we make is hand-crafted, exceptionally unique, and we take pride in creating bold and dynamic flavors. With both savory and sweet experience and accolades, AMR Catering is a one stop spot for your next event.
