Padma Lakshmi is an inspiration to all foodies in our country! She started her career as a model in the fashion industry, but now she has managed to venture her career into the world of food, her true passion. Padma Lakshmi hosts one of the most popular cooking shows, and she has produced her own food docuseries as well. She has written six books, all related to food. That’s not all. Even in her free time, Padma Lakshmi loves to spend her time around food and in the kitchen. With over 1.3 million followers on Instagram, she often shares her unfiltered opinions about cooking that are highly relatable!
Recently, Padma Lakshmi shared a video of a very common thing we do while cooking in the kitchen – how we stand while cooking. One rarely thinks of one’s body posture while cooking food. We are often too engrossed in thinking about the next steps of a recipe to even wonder what we would look like while cooking food. But Padma Lakshmi has made an observation, and we can’t help but agree with her! Take a look:
In the video, we see Padma Lakshmi cooking and standing with her free hand resting on her hip. She calls herself out by asking her fans and followers, “Why do Asian women stand like this when they cook?” The video has 562k views and 25k likes (still counting).
Before this, Padma Lakshmi was in London and having all kinds of foodie adventures! She went to an Indian grocery store and decided to review all the Indian snacks. That’s not all; she even celebrated her birthday at a fancy restaurant in London.
