My focus is primarily on spices and how they can be incorporated in our everyday lives. I like to stay authentic to the dishes that come from India and focus on farm to table dishes. Simplicity in cooking but complex profile is my primary focus

Even though I am a pastry chef I have cooked since a very young age and more often than not bring in both savory and sweet elements in my cooking. Having learned the basics at home and then expanding them to a restaurant scenario, I try and balance both when I create menus for my clients.

One of my strengths has always been to bring a balance of sweet, salty, crunchy and tangy on a plate, much like how Indian food is served at home.

I hired Chef Surbhi Sahni to cater my wedding. It was an intimate affair, 40 people on a rooftop in Brooklyn. Her food was amazing and service was great. Working with Chef Surbhi was unfortunately frustrating, she is not punctual (was at a minimum 30 minutes late for every meeting including day of the wedding), she lacks organization and is forgetful. Day of execution went fine for the most part and again food was incredible but out of all my wedding vendors she was by far the worst to deal with and caused me a lot of stress. As delicious as her food was I will never deal with her again, it is not worth the hassle. I should also mention she is a brilliant pastry chef, she provided our wedding cake and favors which were a variety of cookies. All of which were absolutely delicious.

Surbhi provided a delicious meal that exceeded all expectations. And she was simply a pleasure to be around and to learn from. A thoroughly memorable evening

Surbhi made many, many delicious things—but the things that stood out for me were flavor combinations that were unfamiliar, yet traditional. In particular, she made a peach chutney that had a wonderful heat to it and a Watermelon Curry which was so fresh—it may become my go to summer dish.
