Though she had been cooking since she was 9, Shipra really began inventing dishes only post her marriage. While going through a crisis in life as she is separated and has applied for a divorce, Shipra believes MasterChef is her second chance in life to fight for her kids and get them back. They are currently with her husband.
“Food is a stress buster for me and takes me away from all my problems. I have cried over real issues and cooking issues as well. I simply love cooking.” It was at her mother’s behest that she auditioned for MasterChef during her depression. She was nervous and anxious during the bootcamp but when she began passing each stage, her morale was boosted. Chef Kunal saluted her for her creativity and concept during the bootcamp as he called her dish the Best Indian Dessert he has tasted in his life. “He advised me to patent my dish and said he would like to add it in his restaurant menu. It was a huge moment in my life.” Totally confident now, she is raring to go and prove her talent to the world.
