An author of two books, including the bestselling ‘Indian Flavours’ specially selected by Barnes and Noble to be printed as a special edition, Marut Sikka has burnt a trail in the global food circuit.

As a connoisseur of Indian food, Marut has spent years researching and collecting secret recipes, from small towns tucked into the interiors of the country and cities bustling with life. A specialist in Awadhi cooking, his creations have a royal touch.

Marut Sikka’s recipes are simple, using fresh ingredients which look and tastes good. It’s all in the pantry and it’s all about putting the right things together.
