My grandmother Erna, was born in 1917 in a small moMaya Shankeruntain village in Carinthia, Austria. After her schooling she went for travels to other parts of Austria and Switzerland where she fended for herself by conjuring up delicacies as maid and cook.

In the late 1930's she returned back to her native village, met Willi, both fell in love and married. They had three children. Since then Erna used to conjure up delicacies for her loved ones in the lush green of the Austrian Alps.

One of their children is my mother. I am Maya-Lisa Shanker, an Austrian with a Bihari touch.

Fast-forward to 2007: I had been spending the majority of my time in India for the past few years and decided to create my own little Austria here in India, taking on the challenge of starting a business.

Spurned by my grandmother's passion to cook, bake, mix, and create, I created our very first product: Erna's HerbButter.

Spurned by its success (especially in combination with aloo parantha) I created a few more Tasty Spreads.

Today, in 2013, Erna's Gourmet runs a small gourmet kitchen in South Delhi and you can choose from close to 40 products - all made to traditional Austrian, German, and European recipes.

Erna's cuisine is on the one hand rustic, down-to-earth, and subtle while on the other hand sophisticated, smart, and skillfully prepared.

Since 2007, we have delivered to the embassies and high commissions of Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, France, Czech Republic, Poland, ... as well as providing home-deliveries in Vasant Vihar, Anand Niketan, Shanti Niketan, Jor Bagh, the farmhouses in Sultanpur, Vasant Kunj, Chattarpur, Gadaipur, etc. and other upmarket areas of New Delhi.
