Meet Chef Zerka,

Lover of all things culinary. Chef Zerka has a unique style of cooking with a good mix of old school and classic techniques. Zerka has a strong passion about learning the roots behind each ingredient and shares that passion with other hobbies such as hiking, foraging and outdoor cooking. Starting her hospitality career at the age of 15, Zerka would go on to venture in hospitality departments such as bartending, serving, management and fine dining event planning. Zerka learned most of her classical training during her post-secondary program at Conestoga College through several food business courses.

Since then, Zerka and Shahgul have joined the "chefpreneur" venture by creating "The Pulao Gals"; A South Asian Influenced food company offering pop-ups, caterings, dinners + more. Chef Zerka specializes in traditional + "new fusion" South Asian cuisine and is offering her private catering services to the Waterloo Region, Wellington County & GTA!
