My name is Tully, the creator of @tullyzkitchen.
I was born in India and raised by a single mother. To help around the house I had learnt to cook by the age of 13.
I moved to Australia in 2003 in search of greener pastures and studied master’s In information systems.
In 2009 I decided to become a professional chef. Halfway through the course I realised that I don’t want to spend my weekends in a hot kitchen!
THE TURNING POINT
My partner and I turned vegan in 2017. We realised that we can't love animals and eat them too. At family gathering we sat on one end of the table with a bread roll and plain pasta. The tipping-point came when we were served a cold mound of chickpea at a fancy catering event, while everyone else received an incredible three-course meal. This needed to change.
I wanted to do more to help animals, and wanted to showcase that vegan food can be delicious and not boring. So I chose cooking as my medium of expression on social media. Once my personal brand gained momentum I felt a sense of purpose and make a bigger change. I wanted people to enjoy compassionate food that was convenient and delicious, so I ventured into food manufacturing.
My passion is cooking, my purpose is to create a kinder world and help animals, and my dream is to reach millions of people around the world with my content and products. I want to make kindness go viral.
If you have made it through till the end of my story, I appreciate you. Enjoy your stay in Tully’z kitchen and let me know if I can be of any help to you!
