SHREYA GUPTA - FOUNDER & PASTRY CHEF

Shreya’s love for patisserie goes way back to when she was a little girl who would watch her mother bake all her birthday cakes while patiently waiting for leftover batter. From binge watching baking shows to completing her culinary education at Le Cordon Bleu London, Shreya knew that being a pastry chef was her calling.

Having always had a strong inclination towards the fine arts- from painting to music to design, Shreya founded Essange with the intention to incorporate art into her desserts. From gorgeous florals to modern minimal cakes, she has always believed that creativity and innovation go hand in hand. Being a perfectionist, she believes that her intricacy and attention to detail along with her aesthetic is what makes Essange stand out. Combining this with high quality ingredients and utmost importance to taste, Shreya creates products that taste as exquisite as they look.

KRITIKA PATEL - PARTNER & BUSINESS HEAD

Kritika, our Business Head is a fashion buyer by training and an entrepreneur by passion. She founded and managed her own fashion brand while working as an assistant buyer at Gucci Dubai before bringing her organisational expertise to Essange.

From managing the team to being our official cake taster, she has played a pivotal role in setting up the central kitchen. She not only brings to the table her business and operational know-how but also the ability to handle all the frantic chaos in the kitchen – a skill she has aced thanks to being a mother to a hyper active toddler!
