About A Santhilakshmy
Passionate about creating healthy and tasty food, Santhilakshmy's journey started 15 years ago taking her to schools and educational forums as an advocate of tasty and nutritious meals, making a case for understanding our food better. Her background as a science teacher, parent and enthusuastic chef helps lend credibility to the meals she whips up. Testimony to this commitment is the sustainable and organic kitchen created at Prakriya School in Bangalore. She will also be bringing all of that experience and delight to Pathashaala School in Chennai.
Her workshops help parents and teachers who face the challenge of balancing nutrition with taste - which is often the only thing children care about! Some of these workshops help children be more informed and connected to what they eat. In these workshops, Santhilaksmy shares her secrets and experience in creating delicious menus and even snacks which children gobble up.
Santhilakshmy has been associated with Bhoomi Network since 2009. Through her workshops at Bhoomi, she has been communicating on topics such as Millets in Your Daily Meals, and Holistic Nutrition and Conscious Kitchen. Through her work Santhilakshmy continues evangelising the need to return focus to our habits, myths and fads, tradition, flavours and sustainability of culinary practices in India.
