What inspired you to become a chef?
I have a strong sense of responsibility thus since childhood I used to cook food to help my mother. Eventually, I learned critical techniques of Indian Cuisine which seems very critical yet simple. My mother and her sense and understanding of food inspired me to take the serenity of home cook food to modern Gastronomy delight. In one word my mother and her understanding of food inspired me to become a chef.
What is the one cuisine that you are most comfortable cooking? Enjoy the most?
I have trained in Multi cuisine culture where chefs need to know and learn anonymously everything about cooking. Personally, my favourite is “my cuisine” which is New age Indian food with world techniques and nature inspired. Latest creation “Gosht Nihari Arancini” served with Martini Nutella, Just love inventing.
Is there a chef you admire the most? Who and why?
I admire Chef Roshan Mendonsa for being a mentor and grooming me as a leader. I have learnt one particular thing from him is that Being Honest and straightforward is better than being diplomatic, True leaders are not diplomats and diplomats are not a true leader.
Do you have any advice for someone wanting to become a chef?
Being a Chef cant be just a profession. If someone really loves and has a true feeling for food then only He/She can be happy with the pressure and pleasure of being a chef.
