What inspired you to become a chef?
If I look back the profession of chef was an accidental choice , having said so during college days at Institute of Hotel Management I fell in love with the concept of cooking which I realised was very therapeutic. There are sometimes the inner self resonates where you belong and for sure when I look back guess something of those sorts pulled me in. Inspiration were many from Sanjeev Kapoor to my mother in some ways pushed me towards this lovely profession of feeding people.
What is the one cuisine that you are most comfortable in cooking?
Italian that will be, I feel that’s one cuisine which has its heart in their homes and their mother’s food. In my pursue of Italian food I realized the cuisine is culturally rich and intertwined that I couldn’t stop loving it more day by day .
Is there a chef you admire the most? Who and why?
Chef Hemant Oberoi for being my mentor and a constant inspiration and an idol for our generation through his dedication towards this craft. Just by watching him in the kitchen and talking to him over his ideas of food is an inspiration itself.
When are you happiest at work?
When I get some time to cook what I want to which is Italian and traditional at heart, food over the years has gone through many changes. For me though the finest of food is when we bring the best of ingredients together and cook a simple flavourfull meal and present it unpretentiously.
What all have been the key drivers for the success of your journey?
My mother , my humble upbringing, the hunger for more everyday, knowledge and dedication to achieve the best when cooking.
