Ritu Dalmia
Ritu Dalmia is the owner of Diva, one of Delhi's finest Italian restaurants. Diva has won the Hindustan Times' HT City Award for the last four years and The Times of India's Times Food Award for the last two years. Ritu also runs the extremely popular café at the Italian Cultural Centre. She was awarded the prestigious Order of the Star of Italian Solidarity. At the age of sixteen, Ritu joined her father's marble business. She often travelled to Italy for work and fell in love with its cuisine on her trips there. At the age of twenty-one she started her first restaurant MezzaLuna, in Delhi, offering Mediterranean cuisine with an Italian accent. It was in her words 'a wonderful disaster' and she closed shop and moved to London, where she opened the acclaimed Indian restaurant Vama. She returned to Delhi to open Diva.
