Having been taught that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, Dolcee learnt cooking since the age of 9.

“I practiced for MasterChef by plating dishes at home. I don’t like to read much but I would read recipe books by the dozen.” Sweet & pleasant, Dolcee has a 2 and half year old son and wants to be known for her cooking. With her family’s support, she feels confident about her talent. A pasta lover she experiments and invents a lot, mostly revolving around pasta. Staying away from her family especially her young son is hard on her and him as well but she says, “No pain no gain. I do feel very bad for my son but the chefs have been generous to allow me to bring my son for a few days to Mumbai, and that has helped both of us a lot.”
