Welcome to Chef Priyanka: “I Got 99 Problems, but a Meal Ain’t 1”
My specialty is bringing together ingredients, flavors, and concepts of different cultures through original vegetarian dishes. My cooking skills have landed me a spot on a Food Network Show Cooks vs Cons, which aired Wed Sept 13th and I WON as a CON! I beat out 2 professional and 1 amateur chefs to take home the prize of $10,000! I have been featured in the Staten Island Advance for my Food Network appearance and win!
Born and raised in Staten Island, NY, I have been cooking and developing recipes for 15+ years. I have been recognized by foodgawker, Zagat, PETA, and Meatless Monday, among others for my creation of original vegetarian and vegan recipes such as Sweet Potato Masala Burgers and Chipotle Pumpkin Tortas.
I am currently in the midst of writing my first cookbook – The Modern Tiffin: Own Your Lunch – a vegetarian cookbook featuring portable recipes portioned for 1-2 people based on the concept of tiffins (with vegan/raw/plant-based options throughout the book). I am looking to educate people on how vegetarian food can be healthy, fun, and satisfying and share my lifestyle with others. Follow The Spicy Mango for continuous updates!
