The creation of Surinder’s Kitchen is a fun story and at the core of what we’re all about: a place where family and friends can gather together around good, wholesome foods that nourish the body and soul.
In the early 1950’s, when my father migrated to England, there weren’t Indian restaurants or grocery stores. Because my father so dearly loved and missed Indian food, he began cooking and preparing his favorite dishes for family and friends. I grew up helping my father in the kitchen and my inspiration and recipes come from him.
After I got married and moved to the United States, I spent years perfecting these recipes and preparing them for my loved ones. I didn’t begin selling my chutneys until I started my own Indian cooking classes. So many of my students requested to buy my chutney that I began making small batches to sell to friends. As its popularity grew, I created new varieties such as mango, tamarind and cilantro.
In 2011, I expanded sales to farmers markets in the St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay areas. Now my chutneys are available to you!
Give my Far East sauces a try, dazzle your friends with an authentic Indian condiment and have fun trying my chutney-pairing recommendations! From my kitchen to yours, I am proud to offer you the finest artisan chutneys available.
