Primlani lives in Orlando, Florida but was born and raised in Delhi, India. Primlani, a self-taught home chef, learned how to use spices and aromatics to heighten dishes. She started cooking as the family's head cook at the age of 12 and today is also a freelance wine educator and writer, sharing her unique insights as “Indian Wine Goddess” on Instagram. Primlani describes herself as having the soul of a Mexican grandmother, the heart of an Italian mother, and the aspirations of a French chef.
Primlani may have a leg-up on her competitors because she has a photographic memory and can reverse-engineer any meal she’s had once and recreate it. Primlani wants to share the spotlight with other mothers that put their families first. She sees this competition as a chance to step out from the shadows and take back her personal passions. Primlani also would like to start an ethnic culinary teaching program, focusing on local produce and incorporating global cuisines including Israeli, Mexican, Italian, Spanish, Thai, and Indian.
