VLCC Award for Best Recipe

I took part in a cooking contest organised by VLCC, Dubai, the leading Weight Loss clinic, and was fortunate to win the award for the Best Recipe. It feels good when your effort and innovation gets recognized.

I am interested in healthy cooking, and in my cooking classes I pay great attention to cooking for a healthy heart. I am keen to try new things, and experiment continuously to achieve the satisfaction of creating a dish that is not only delicinous but also healthy, specially for the sedentary life we live in Dubai.
