Shivina’s Kitchen

Content creator & Food Blogger


My name is Shivina Chugh, and I am a junior at Northeastern University. 

I am studying Business Administration with a concentration in brand management.

I am from the Bay Area in California and have a passion for cooking, trying new coffee, photography, traveling, blogging, and digital marketing. 

Magic Begins In The Kitchen <3

I approach the kitchen: my happy place. Measuring cups, metal whisks, cutting boards, all insight. I mix a stick of butter with a heap of powdered sugar and a dash of vanilla, creating the base for the dessert I’m making that day. Next, I’m carefully chopping precise measurements of carrots and onions, gently adding them to my steel boiling pot of soup. I reach for my chopped thyme and authentic leaves of basil to finish my dish. With the pleasant aroma around me, I am at peace. The fragrance of flavorful oils and seasonal spices deeply intrigues me. Being able to craft ideas for recipes has allowed me to connect with different cultures worldwide. Whether it’s a traditional Indian, paneer biryani, or a tasty Mexican enchilada, I’ve learned a lot about other cultures and their ways of life. As a beginner, I’d strictly follow food bloggers’ recipes and would be frustrated if I was even a teaspoon over the intended measurement. Now, I create meals based on my own judgment and share recipes on a successful food blog. To me, presentation is key. I make sure to lay out colorful plates and strategically separate courses of food onto one plate. Crafting food is an art: an amalgamation of flavors and seasoning to create the perfect balance.

MY Passion for cooking

Aside from being a simple hobby, the kitchen has taught me patience and the importance of problem-solving. My mother is vegan but adores sweets and creamy black forest cakes, teaching me to adapt to others’ general needs. Fluffy eggs are the basis of most desserts, but I’ve discovered substitutes for them and have crafted vegan-friendly recipes for her. Not only is the kitchen the place where I clear my mind and connect to myself the most, but it’s also where I’ve been able to bring my family together. I enjoy being in control of taste, and treating them to their favorite foods excites me. Through cooking, I’ve expressed my emotions decorously and have developed a sense of mindfulness. I’ve brought people together with this passion through laughs and loving memories.
