About Something’s Cooking Culinary Arts Pvt. Ltd
Something’s Cooking Culinary Arts is an idea that brings people together and closer, the old-fashioned way- by the hearth. Our kitchen is where great teams are brewed, friendships are stirred, and ideas are stewed – all for the love of food.
Kitchen, we believe is a venue for social interaction; a multi-sensorial experience that witnesses families and friends convene to do more than speak and listen to each other. The happiest homes come together at mealtimes; the best of friends catch up over chai.
With ‘kitchen in focus’, we aim to bring teams together from various fields of life, to engage and bond over cooking, for a delicious meal which they prepare themselves.
