Aditi Dugar

Director & Founder
Masque & Urban Gourmet India
Born in Mumbai, Aditi Dugar grew up surrounded by the foods of her mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens. She started to cook at the age of 16 and discovered a passion for baking. After the birth of her first child, Aditi left a career in finance to launch a niche catering company called Sage & Saffron – a move which came naturally given the family’s enthusiasm for food. In December 2018, Masque was ranked #5 among the country’s best restaurants at the Condé Nast Traveller Top Restaurant Awards. In August 2019, Masque was ranked on Food & Wine and Travel + Leisure’s collaborative, inaugural list of the World’s Best Restaurants, and in 2020, the restaurant won the Miele One to Watch Award at Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. In March 2021, Masque was ranked #32 on the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, and in 2022, ranked #21 on the same list, as India’s Best Restaurant.
