Chef Partner at SodaBottleOpenerWala; Award-Winning Chef

Chef Anahita Dhondy comes from a family of Parsis settled in Delhi. Since childhood, her world has revolved around food. She takes inspiration from her mother, who cooks and caters Parsi food and baking cakes.

She pursued her culinary dream by enrolling into IHM-Aurangabad which she passed with honors in Culinary Arts. She trained at Taj properties and the BBC at JW Marriott.

After completing a Cordon Bleu Grand Diplome in London, Dhondy returned to India, and collaborated with veteran restaurateur A.D. Singh to launch the first SodaBottleOpenerWala in New Delhi in 2013 as Chef Manager when she was 23. Now Chef-Partner at the branch, Dhondy has seen the expansion of the chain, promoting her native Parsi cuisine.

A passionate cook since the age of 10, Dhondy continues to be very active within the Indian culinary scene, and has won several awards, including the Young Chef India award and the Times Food Award.

She has worked on an all-women cooking TV show aired on Living Foodz called “Femme Foodies” and is currently researching and writing a Parsi Cookbook.
