Vedika Luthra was born in India, raised in Poland (where she attended an American school), and then moved to the Netherlands to attend university and is currently pursuing her postgraduate studies there. Her unique background has shaped her experiences in the kitchen.
Passionate about food from an early age, Vedika started her food blog Hot Chocolate Hits when she was fourteen. Her first videos were her favourite recipes, such as classic brownies, lemon cake and coconut cake. A year after she began posting videos, she was recruited by food video network Tastemade (a platform competing with Buzzfeed's Tasty) as one of their network partners on Youtube. With their help and her dedication, Hot Chocolate Hits amassed a following, hungry for recipes such as mango cheesecake and chocolate chip cookie lava cakes. In 2015, her recipe for no-bake Oreo bars was their first video on their "Sweeten" page to go viral, amassing 36 million views in the first year alone. After that, several of her recipes went viral. This hobby has slowly transformed into something much more and now, seven years later, she has combined her passion for photography, video, and baking into an inviting and popular channel.
In addition to her passion for food and photography, Vedika also enjoys writing and has written extensively about food for several English-language publications including Food52, Spoon University, the Warsaw Voice and as well as the Warsaw Business Journal.
