Our Chefs: Seema Chandra

seema chandra Seema Chandra has been in the food space for over a decade. She runs NDTV's food portal www.NDTV Food and has been a food show anchor on television with NDTV 24X7, NDTV India and now NDTV Good Times. She's travelled the world sampling food and has had no choice but to suffer being filmed while eating. She's also been told that she can't lie about the food, as the expression on her face gives her away.

Having spent ample time in kitchen standing shoulder to shoulder with chefs from around the world, Seema has been back on air on a series called Guilt Free. Only this time, she is doing the cooking along with her friends. Guilt Free is a food show about making the right food choices, choosing the right ingredients, cooking and eating smart. That's her food philosophy and it pretty much sums up what she writes about on the food website.

Seema began her career in the television world, when it was barely seen as a career. Way back in 1992, she started as a researcher on the investigative news magazine called Newstrack. And even today, the research continues on food, nutrition and wellness.
