If there is one thing Tanu loves more than eating a good meal, it's cooking a meal from scratch for her favourite people. Owing to her family's armed forces background, she has grown up enjoying diverse flavours from around the country. Both mangsho and mutton-do-pyaaza run through her veins in equal measure, thanks to her part-bengali, part-punjabi genes.
She hates being called a 'foodie' because it's a terribly over-used and abused term now. Most self-proclaimed 'foodies' are part-time fad-chasers and full–time critics, in her opinion.
She has been an executive producer, director and anchor during a career spanning over 17 years. The last decade has revolved around generating food content across platforms.
Tanu lives in Gurgaon with her family. On most weeknights you will find her playing scrabble with her 6-year-old son or watching American TV series endlessly.
