About Hetal 

Hetal Vasavada grew up in New Jersey in a family of wonderful Gujarati home cooks who raised her on chai, cardamom-spiced shortbreads, and sweet puddings. After a cross-country move, Vasavada started to recreate the flavours of her childhood—this time in her own style—which eventually landed her a spot on Gordon Ramsay’s MasterChef, where she was the show’s first Hindu vegetarian contestant. Vasavada is the author of Milk and Cardamom; has a successful Instagram channel (@milkandcardamom), blog (milkandcardamom. com) and online pop-up bakery; and is a contributor at Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Cherry Bombe, Eater, Food52, and more. Hetal is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.

About Punam 

A born and raised East Londoner, Punam Vaja grew up in a large traditional  Gujarati family with roots in India and East Africa. Growing up, food was at the heart of every family gathering, no matter how many people turned up, everyone was welcome and there was always food. In 2018, Punam launched Khao Suppers, a homage to the dishes and stories of her childhood presented through a series of supper clubs, brunch events and workshops. Her supper clubs have been lauded as one to watch by CN Traveller, bringing a fresh outlook to classic Gujarati home cooking with innovative touches without losing authentic flavours. Based in London, Punam has taken her supper clubs around London, Portugal and beyond.
