What are the Home Cheffies Awards?

A home chef is defined as anyone who cooks or makes food products from their home and not in a commercial kitchen. One of the most inspiring and wonderful human stories to emerge in the last one year are those of the home chefs. Undaunted by the hardships around them, home chefs have opened their kitchens to the world and have offered fabulous culinary experiences that have given great joy in these tough times. 

Many home chefs have started businesses which have led to their own financial independence and to the financial stability of their families.

One part of building a successful business is offering a great product. In this case, food. 

The other part is building a brand that is distinct and well loved. 

We have seen the kernels of many fabulous home chef brands emerge over the last year and the Home Cheffies Awards is an endeavor from Bookaworkshop.in and Finely Chopped Consulting to identify home chef power brands across sectors. 

The aim is to applause and encourage them and to provide direction through their work to all entering the market.

The entry for this contest is free and we welcome contestants from across India. There will be cash awards for the winners. 


Our panel of judges consists of experts from the world of business, brand building and advertising and are people who fervently believe in the cause of home chefs. 

This includes business tycoons, creative heads from top advertising agencies, owners of talk of the town design and digital firms and business heads from leading FMCG companies. They have been jury members of leading business and advertising awards and are stalwarts in their fields.

The judging will be on the communication to the consumer. NOT the food.

The decision of judges is final. under all circumstances.
