About Chef


Know Your Chef


What inspired you to become a chef? Tell us your story!

I remember happily playing chef’s assistant to my mom when I was little. It was from her I learnt that preparing real food takes some amount of time! I started my professional life as a chef in Mumbai in the year 2003. After acquiring culinary skills and learning cooking methods in the city for about 6 years, I moved to Hyderabad where I was a part of the Vision group of restaurants. Here, I had the privilege of working alongside many renowned chefs and spent a total of 3 years. On returning to Mumbai, I was a part of China Gate and The Food Studio. Today, I feel grateful for having such a career in the food industry and feel honoured to share my culinary expertise and knowledge at Holachef.

Which celebrity chefs do you admire the most?

I do not follow any celebrity chefs in particular, but I do watch Sanjeev Kapoor's cooking shows, if it happens to be playing on television.

What do you do in your free time?

Cricket is my kind of entertainment and I try to catch most of the IPL games. Films and Bollywood don't interest me much.

I hope to travel to all four corners of India. I believe India is a country with a vast portion of undiscovered beauty.
