The gorgeous mom, celebrity chef, TV show host and now author Chef Rakhee Vaswani said, “All the recipes mentioned in the book are ones I've made at home for my kids. I've recognized their palate and turned them into children who eat everything. This is what the book Picky Eaters aims at doing in the long run.  I personally feel that it is absolutely possible to make healthy food at home which is still restaurant-like in taste and appearance. I am so humbled today and I’d like to thank everyone for their unconditional love and support – especially my husband Mahesh and kids Aneeshaa and Akhil.”

Excited for Chef Rakhee, the stunning Malaika Arora Khan said, “I owe all my cooking, or the experience of it, to Rakhee. She is the most humble, patient and wonderful teacher I have come across (obviously the only one!). She makes teaching and learning a very pleasurable experience. I have had the great fortune of attending many classes at Palate Culinary Studio with Rakhee. Whenever I want a recipe, I just pick up the phone and ask Rakhee for help. This is the best part about her—cooking is such passions that give her a brief, or just few keywords, and a recipe flows out of her.”
