Nandini Ahuja
New Hyde Park, New York

Nandini hails from New Hyde Park, New York and spends much of her time Googling unlikely flavor combinations that strike her as a good idea (Fritos and Nutella- there’s a recipe for that). When she’s not hungry for paneer makhani or pie, she’s devouring the books on her ever-growing list of “Books to Read” or hate-watching the Bachelor with her sisters.
You can find her napping on her commute to work at a publishing house in New York. She’s the one with a giant lunch bag that has a map of Manhattan and the words, “Take a Bite Out of the City” on it. Her mother still likes to shop for her, and for that she is grateful.
