about the video
At a time when hotel management courses didn’t even exist, Shatbhi embarked upon a journey full of a roller coaster ride. Once in the food industry, she decided to become a chef. But after getting shunted through various odd and menial roles in the kitchen to no avail, she quit. The kitchen was off-limits but she hung around. A manager suggested that she should handle the bar. Once she started reading up about it, she developed a liking for it. Since then, there has been no looking back. Shatbhi has designed several bars in India and abroad and runs India’s first and only bartending academy called STIR. (Priyanka Verma)
