Age: 35

Chetna was born in India and moved to Mumbai for University where she became a fashion designer and started her own clothes label. She met her husband whilst they were at college, where he was training to become a doctor. They moved to the UK in 2003 and, whilst Chetna had travelled a lot before, the transition from the hot to the cold weather and from one of the most densely populated cities in the world to Kent was a massive shock.

Chetna used baking as a way of embracing life in the UK and has thrown herself into learning new skills, combining her mum’s traditional recipes and flavours with British bakes when she can. She is a creative yet meticulous baker and she channels her huge creativity into her baking as well as painting beautiful murals on her children’s bedroom walls. She bakes for family and for friends.
