What inspired you to become a chef?
It all started with my love for food as a child. My inspiration came from my mother, who was an outstanding home chef, seeing her immaculate skills inspired me to become one. I completed my hotel management and joined the prestigious Oberoi Centre of Learning & Development in 1996 and worked with various Oberoi hotels. In 2002, I moved to Spainand then to New Zealand in the following year to launch an Asian and Indian fusion restaurant. I returned to India in 2016 and joined JW Marriott Kolkata before I moved to Bangalore only a year ago and joined Bengaluru Marriott Whitefield as the Executive Chef.
What is the one cuisine that you are most comfortable cooking? Enjoy the most
The cuisine I enjoy the most is Asian. I like working with Asian flavors and accentuating the ingredients to bring out the unique and robust flavors of the cuisine.
Is there a chef you admire the most? Who and why?
In the course of my career, I have had the pleasure of working with 2 amazing and exceedingly talented chefs – Chef Alvin Leung and Chef Julien Royer. I also admire the works of Chef Thomas Keller and Chef David Thompson and last but not least – Mr. Jiggs Kalra.
What have been the key drivers for the success of your journey?
I believe hard work and the mindset to constantly keep learning are the key drivers of success. With the cut-throat competition in the industry today, I feel it is vital to create your own style and build your own identity. I have also recognized the importance of traveling and exploring new cultures. The learnings from one travel experiences are showcased in a dish through new flavors and innovative techniques. So I suggest, travel as much as you can and taste everything that comes your way.
