Get to know me better
Cooking is my passion and i do it wholeheartedly. I always seek for perfection and consistency.
I am a professional chef for last 7 years. I have completed my 3 years bachelor's degree in hotel management. And started my culinary journey from The Oberoi hotels and resorts Mumbai. After working there for significant time i decided to get more knowledge and advanced training from global chefs and that why i decided to enroll myself in George Brown college. After that I started my culinary adventure with Rob gentile at Buca Yorkville, then i never looked back. I got an opportunity to work with some of the best Michelin starred chefs. Then finally a milestone completed as working for pre-opening team at Don alfonso Toronto. There i groomed myself with current food trends, different cooking skills, how to give a justice to simple and humble ingredients. Pasta and Mediterranean food always been my love or favorite.
