Over the past 20 years, Aditi Goswami has traveled across the globe and donned many roles. Starting her career as a fresh MBA with a busy corporate career, she graduated to becoming a full-time mom and then an entrepreneur.
Through all these changes, her love for food and entertaining has stayed a constant source of comfort and stability. Her frequent trips to India revive and refresh her passion to pursue Indian food in all it's regional varieties.
Growing up in India, food was a way of life, a way to express love and care, and to work with nature's bounty. The idea of transforming magical ingredients into delicious dishes is what drives Aditi's love, awe and respect for food.
Besides Calcutta Kitchens, Aditi is the Program Manager at the not-for-profit Center For Food Equity and Economic Development (FEED) in Bridgeport, CT where she teaches a 10 week Culinary Program for low income community residents three times a year and runs a social enterprise production kitchen full time, teaching entrepreneurial skills to her students who would like to start their own journey as business owners.

Flowering Tree returns Aditi to her roots in India and fulfills her desire to work with women and children especially. The beauty and culture of her homeland is an inspiration, and work for Flowering Tree is a way to inspire and be inspired. She is a graduate of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program.
