Have you ever had a dream that is so close to your heart that you simply couldn’t allow it to disperse in thin air? I had a dream of this kind when I was a kid… of spreading happiness with the food I cook.
When I was mere 3 feet tall, I used to follow my mom to the kitchen to watch her cook while my friends were busy grooming their dolls. I remember getting enchanted by the things she created and the way she created them! Soon, I started creating my tiny versions of various Indian sweets and serving them with great pride. I remember feeling my chest swell with happiness whenever someone praised my little love preparations and blessed me with a big smile. For the first time in life, I knew what pure happiness that comes out of accomplishment feels like. . .
Life took over as it usually does after that, and I got busy following the norms of the society while simultaneously nurturing my cooking skills. After my graduation course, I became a house-wife and started making the people around me happy with my delicious creations. I participated in the Master Chef India and was thrilled to get selected from thousands of people! In all this, somewhere deep down, I wanted to hone my skills by learning from the experts and in order to achieve that, I put all my efforts towards receiving that knowledge. With a lot of hard work on my part, one door opened and I did the best of that opportunity by learning everything that I possibly could for two years straight while balancing my family life along with it.
I found the courage of starting ‘Chocolates by Nehaa Ahmed’ following that and there was no looking back after that step. Soon, the word of mouth spread and I was serving happiness to young and old hearts alike! One such fine day, probably my luckiest day, I met a man whose world was full of machines and grease, and his heart was longing for a hospitality business. I found out that he was nurturing a small seedling of burning passion since a long, long time ago. It deepened he stated when his small daughters took a mighty interest in it and now have big expectations from him! What is it I wondered and was delighted to find out that his passion resonated with mine – he wanted to serve the people all around the world with nothing but the best of food! Being a veteran businessman, his ideas and visions surpassed the boundaries I had imagined, and that was the day our thoughts intersected, our wavelengths met and magic happened!
With his knowledge of business spanning decades, his thorough understanding of the market and mine skills combined, Fantasy Bistro came in the picture which believes that the ultimate comfort of life is food and that foodies are the best kind of people! Spoons in hand, we both traveled across India and tasted the vast plethora of offerings which came in every colour, taste, and grandeur possible! Mesmerized, we brainstormed our way towards our distinctive menu which is now proving to be a gastronomical delight!
