Somey Samuel’s passion and interest for cooking started at a very young age. She has been an exceptional cook from the age of 9 and now even after 45 years, she has the same passion for great tasting food. With a very humble beginning in a rural town in South of India, Somey started to cook and take care of her siblings right from the age of nine as her mother was unwell. Her creativity started right from those days as all the vegetables and meat was available in her own father’s farm. With all the organic ingredients available, she built her cooking skills by trying new dishes on a daily basis to keep her siblings entertained with great tasting and a variety of different types of food.
She always puts her own creative twist to every dish she makes. Just like good wine, her food gets better with age. She believes cooking is an art and enjoys hospitality by cooking and serving home made authentic specialties to her family, friends and everyone who visits her home.
Somey now lives with her beloved husband V.M Samuel in Bangalore, India and have dedicated their lives together to serve God and people.
Through Somey’s Kitchen, she dreams to extend her hospitality to the nations by serving her delicious home made speciality dishes. As a mum, she wraps all her food with LOVE!
