Mumbai to Maine!
A Culinary AdventureShop NOW!
Mumbai to Maine was born in my kitchen, my culinary sanctuary, here in Boothbay, Maine. But it was also born out of nostalgia and a longing to feel connected to Mumbai and my childhood. Food has this power to bring people together and it also has the influence to transport you to your childhood or a special place you love. In my case, it was my humble apartment in Mumbai, at my mother’s heels, taking in all the intoxicating aromatics of her scratch, home-style cooking.
As an immigrant, a daughter of immigrants, a female founder of a diversity owned business here in Maine, I am leading this luxury brand of simmer sauces with purpose, passion, perspective and a strategic plan to continue to anchor the brand here in Maine, expand Maine’s diversity footprint and create valuable and meaningful jobs, contributing right back to Maine's economy.
My hope is these simmer sauces inspire you to be creative in your daily cooking, up your spice game in the kitchen and also introduce you to authentic, regional Indian cuisine from all over India.
Since 2015, I have shared my Mumbai to Maine story through my blog, podcast and social media channel. If you are a curious foodie like me and want the backstory on these sauces, check out some mouthwatering recipes here or attend a class with me at the world headquarters for Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School where I curated a cooking series: Mumbai to Maine Regional Indian Cooking.
Mumbai to Maine is more than simmer sauce. It is mindfully bridging cultural divides one simmer sauce at a time. It’s an homage to my talented mother, who was and will always be the best cook I know and a deeply heartfelt love letter to my Mumbai.
Join me in this journey in a jar. Be a part of my story going forward. It’s going to be quite a ride, and I am so glad I get to share it with you.
