Our Delightful Potluck Event with ChefXChange Chefs in Dubai

Going back to the roots, the ChefXChange team had the pleasure of spending a week in Dubai, where we started our Culinary Revolution nearly 3 years ago. Not to get sentimental, but it was great to see how many chefs we have reached since then. To celebrate that, we have arranged a potluck event because what better way to meet then around delicious food. It was a chance to immerse ourselves in the culinary scene of Dubai in an unusual way as well as try some absolutely delicious food made by our own and only Chef Community!

Chef Andrea’s culinary journey 

“My mom was working and never loved cooking, so as I was around 8 I learnt how to cook something better than a grilled chicken breast. I learnt from friends, books, and chefs… A friend let me join him as a sous-chef in a small restaurant in Genoa for a while, giving me the basic rules about how to cook for others and not just for myself. After that experience, while I was continuing my career in music industry I started cooking as a private chef in my free time. Coming to Dubai I had to learn how to get the best out of the different ingredients available and I’ve been influenced by some talented chefs I met around.”

Growing up, the only hobby I had other than playing cricket with my brothers was cooking and watching Khana Khazana (a famous Indian cooking show) on TV. I continually draw inspiration from my Grandmother, mum, and close peers. If I eat a dish that’s delicious, I always make it a point to ask them for the recipe and recreate it in my own kitchen, sometimes improvising by giving it a ‘Megha-twist’.”

After schooling- I studied International cooking for 3 years and worked in a restaurant for a short time. I then moved to Hong Kong for 12 years – with lots of travelling & discovering many other types of Asian food. With a Western husband – I also kept up my passion for International flavors.
