Cheeky is our vision to prove that simple, handmade, wholesome food is not only good for you, but also mouthwateringly delicious!
I grew up in India, one of a large family of forty-five people. This family consisted of my grandfather’s kin and that of his six brothers, resulting in a vibrant, noisy and fun environment where there was always a reason to celebrate. Whether it be birthdays, weddings, or just ‘because’, my earliest memories of food were framed by joyous occasions and lavish spreads.
Giving up my rather nerdy career as Mathematician and Engineer, I quit the corporate life to raise my two young girls in a fun-filled house in London that in many ways mirrored that of my own childhood. I quickly realised that cooking homemade food, while getting everything else done, was impossible. Instead, I started looking at family treasures of savoury sprinkles, chutneys and pickles - creations that I could store in a jar and use to quickly add flavour to everyday meals. That was the birth of Cheeky Food Co.
I believe that a few ingredients, when mixed in the right manner, go a long way in creating delicious and tasty flavours. These are the values that we strongly hold at Cheeky.
Each product is made from old family recipes, meals that have made their way between the kitchen and dinner table for generations. Each has a story of its own and I hope will result in many more as you share them with your family and friends.
