Usha is keenly aware of the health benefits found in the many unique spices and ingredients found in Indian cuisine and is able to accommodate a wide variety of diets and palates.

She is a cornerstone of the Indian community in Pittsburgh and a beloved mother to many sons and daughters whose weddings she helped make magical.
