Mumbai native Cherie Scott left India at the age of 16 and moved to Vancouver, BC.
After a few stops in New York City and New Jersey, Cherie has been anchored in Boothbay, Maine now for over a decade. In 2015, she launched her culinary blog www.MumbaitoMaine.com to share her signature recipes and nostalgic anecdotes of her youth in Mumbai. In 2018, Cherie was invited to join a lineup of notable guest chef instructors at Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School, where she curated an exclusive, regional Indian cooking series. Cherie is the host of “Talking Food In Maine,” a series of intimate one-on-one conversations with notable culinary pioneers who have made a substantial contribution to the culinary arts in the state of Maine. To celebrate Maine’s bicentennial and gastronomic talent, Cherie hosted and produced Mumbai to Maine’s podcast in 2020 showcasing some of Maine’s most accomplished culinary taste-makers. In the heart of the pandemic, Cherie launched her signature line of gourmet Indian simmer sauces: Makhani, Saag and Caldine. Inspired by her family’s heritage recipes, these simmer sauces are masterfully crafted in small batches and simmered for hours with an infusion of freshly roasted and ground spice blends. Mumbai to Maine is Maine’s first Indian-inspired culinary brand, available nationwide on www.mumbaitomaine.com and across specialty stores in Maine.
