I have a Masters degree in Anthropology of Food, and have worked in the sector of gastronomy and wine for the last 10 years.
I did my culinary training at the famous cooking school Ferrandi Paris, as well as the WSET wine and spirits certification (Level 2 with merit).
I’m currently a freelance food content creator (for myself: @gitanjaliroche on Instagram, and for private clients), as well as the C.O.O. of Opnkitchen.
I’m specialized in digital content, and work in various domains, from recipe development to recipe translation, to community management, and everything in between!
Born in the United States to an Indian father and Syrian/Armenian mother, I moved to Greece when I was 8 years old, and then to France when I was 23. I’ve also lived in Utrecht (the Netherlands), and recently moved to Fontainebleau, a beautiful town in the middle of France’s largest forest, after living in Paris for 10 years.
My passion is learning about the history and culture of various recipes and cuisines from around the world, as well as recommending amazing restaurants, passionate chefs, and delicious recipes to everyone around me!

Merci encore pour le cours ! C'était très bien expliqué, convivial et le résultat était très bon...Expérience à refaire ! :-)
I absolutely loved this online cooking class with Gitanjali. She taught us how to make the most delicious French madeleines. The recipe is simple to follow, however there are a few secret tips the host taught us to make the perfect Madeleines!
An amazing online experience where I learnt to make the perfect Madeleines!
