Get to know me better
Passionate about cooking & hospitality.
I am a professional chef with more than a decade of experience. I have cooked in fine dining establishments as well as events catering. Having cooked in establishments of repute such as Oliver & Bonacini restaurant group, La Locanda del Pilone (MIchelin Star restaurant in Alba, Piemonte, Italy) etc., it has given me a culinary experience like no other.
Putting my personal, original & creative touch to dishes is my forte and that's where I stand apart from the crowd. I excel in visualizing dishes made from seasonal ingredients, anticipate my client's needs and being flexible to meet my client's expectations and exceed them.
Looking forward to cooking for you!
For me, cooking is...

Chef Varun's reviews
We were able to hire Chef Varun for a special 60th birthday gift for my aunt and her husband. They both raved about the scrumptious food, the amazing company and the overall experience. Chef Varun was attentive and kind, with a clear passion for his craft. He is highly recommended by our family! We would definitely choose him again!

Varun was very professional. He was a great communicator leading up to the event and arrived early to set up. Food was excellent and my kitchen was spotless when he left. I’d highly recommend him!
