CAN you make a living out of a home food business? Oh yes, you can. Of course those who started much earlier have the distinct advantage of having learnt their lessons and built their customer base over the years, which means their market share inevitably increased during the pandemic.

Georgina Fernandez for instance, has been running a home food business called Five & Two Foods with her husband John Peter for nearly a decade now. The business specialises in a wide assortment of home-cooked meals like palak paneer, Chettinad pepper chicken and lamb kheema, among others.
