What does Toronto taste like? It’s hard to say, but If you took an passionate home cook with roots in New Dehli, and had her prepare her own versions of classic French, Mexican and American favourites, you might get something close to the flavour of our vibrant and multicultural city.
Ruchika Bhatia has been cooking since she was 13 years old, and by combining her family recipes with the diverse international influences of Toronto, she creates a taste all her own.
