Passionate cook....and curry crazy chef
On the brink of teaching the nation how to cook ‘real’ Indian food with a touch of glamour and a lot of spice! I am passionate about cooking and passing my skills and knowledge on to you just the way my father was taught by my grandfather and I was taught by dad and mum. I Co-own the famous family run Brilliant Restaurant in Southall (voted as part of Ramsay’s Best for Channel 4) and am author of ‘Beyond Brilliant’, the only recipe book of its kind.
My Cookery School in West London (at The Brilliant Restaurant) offers informative, fun and well constructed Indian cookery courses (recognised by the University of West London) open to the public and it gives me true satisfaction to see how my candidates are proud to produce dishes which are nothing less than ‘BRILLIANT’. I have been a Chef Lecturer for 7 years and am currently teaching at two universities in West London specialising on the subject of Indian cuisine and Hospitality and Catering.
I am signature chef of the ‘Spice2Go’ chain and have also produced a unique range of Indian dessert ice-creams in collaboration with Criterion Ices. I am a demo chef and love engaging with the audience, proving to them that Indian food is ‘easy peezy curry squeezy’ to cook. I have carried out many demos at universities, colleges, exhibitions and food festivals and have also worked on television (Raymond Blancs 10 week The Restaurant You’re Fried series as a Restaurateur judge, Ramsay’s cook-along, Ramsay’s Best Restaurant and The Hotel).
The secret of my success is dedication, passion, determination together with a continuing love affair with Indian cooking and a can do attitude truly inspiring me to ‘curry on cooking’.
