Nidhi Verma

Head of Food & Co-Founder , The Cookaway World Food Recipe Kits

Nidhi created Meri Rasoi (which means My Kitchen) in 2011 to demystify Indian cuisine and share her love for authentic Indian food. Her addiction to this wonderful aroma began with savouring home cooked food in her homeland of India.

After a career in marketing with PwC in the UK, she decided to give up her day job to follow her passion for food by setting up a cookery school called Meri Rasoi. Since 2011, She has taught over a thousand people from more than 10 countries. She teaches small groups and private classes from her home kitchen as well as hosts workshops for larger groups and corporates in teaching kitchens.

It quickly became clear that while people loved the food they learnt to cook, it was hard to source authentic ingredients to recreate these recipes at home (we call it the Cookbook problem) and so in 2018, she decided to start Cookaway, to allow people to access her creations easily. Cookaway is an at home cooking experience built to encourage people to embrace the joy of cooking, while bringing them on a global culinary adventure.
