India is a land of diversity and festivals. We are all different in terms of culture, caste, language, attire. However, there is one commonality which is ‘Food’
Sneha Thakkar’s Journey in a Nutshell
People say ‘No matter where you are from. No matter who you are. You can become someone great! You can achieve spectacular success! It doesn’t seem good to be real right? One such real and enchanting story is of Sneha Thakkar. A Homemaker turned Entrepreneur!
Fasten your seatbelt and time travel to the 90’s era, where people lived simply yet happily. A time where cooking at home was in and eating out was once in a blue moon occurrence. She started with a pinch of courage, dash of ambition, and lots of love for cooking. During her first year, she managed a class of 35 passionate learners. Her class was conducted in a humble setting with few resources.
Life unfolded and threw many curve balls towards her. There was a dark time in her life that challenged her to choose a road out of two. One road was to surrender to the darkness. The other was to bring light and change! She chose the road less traveled. She chose to find her light in teaching her art! Struggles went hand in hand with her success. From traveling on a moped to her sister’s home where she would demonstrate an array of scrumptious meals. The more she shared her knowledge and skills, the better she got in her work.
Her work spoke for her! She has now trained thousands of food lovers, aspiring chefs, and homemakers. A proud founder of the most loved Swad Cooking Institute situated in Surat. Now, the institute has grown immensely from being a baby into a full-fledged, thriving business.

HomeMaker to MoneyMaker

We assure you that you won’t have to go through food comas and throw money down the drain. Cook maa ke haath ka khana or your favorite meals or host fancy dinners to flaunt your artistic skills.
India has earned a reputation of being a patriarchal country and socially defined roles. Well, that’s a personal choice whether an individual or a family wants to follow it through. What we know is that there are a considerable number of men who are gravitated towards cooking. So, what stops them? Social conditioning and judgments are some of the demotivating factors. On top of it, naivety makes one highly vulnerable.
We have workshops and basic cooking curriculum for men who want to break the conventional. Our Basic Cooking Course will turn you from ‘Zero to Hero’. We provide a happy and nonjudgmental space for participants. You can learn to chop, make tea and coffee, simple quick comfort recipes and safety guidelines. We expect you to walk in with a clean slate and curiosity, rest is on us. While you can’t control other’s perspectives, you can surely develop culinary skills that turn heads.
Well, answer a sweet poke with a smile and mention ‘Cooking is a life skill one needs to master despite of gender’.
