Homemade Authentic Italian
My love for travelling and trying out new cuisines, dishes, ingredients and herbs. Combining various Italian spices and herbs bringing out the best in all the dishes. Imagining and thinking about the hidden flavors that haven't been discovered at all
I chose to become a chef so that I can explore the world of food, from start I was inspired by food festivals and chefs performing in them. My mother has been the biggest inspiration and supported my love for cooking.
My favorite dish which I can eat anytime and in any amount is Ricotta and truffle filled tortellini, potato cream, organic rocket, when baked ricotta is combined with lemon zest, truffle oil, and red pepper flakes for a delicious bite with bread.
In my opinion a dish can achieve its highest state of perfection if it is practiced thousand times by the Chef who is cooking it. Also, the emotion and the energy with which it is being cooked with enhances the flavors of the dish.
I like to listen to rock music while i am cooking spaghetti pasta, tossing pizzas or sauteing vegetables. This adds a bit of energy to the process and probably enhance flavors. I also sometimes listen to classical Italian music too.
I have a family of 4 . My wife, my two kids and me, I am grateful for my family, to god for making my family so empathetic and helping me support in my passion emotionally, financially and morally.
I have a passion for aviation, I am glider pilot and I love to fly on vacations. I love to watch old Italian and Indian classical movies and I also have an interest in crafting of model airplanes.
Be consistent , no matter how hard the circumstances get. Always pick yourself up and keep going!
