I have always been an explorer & a lover for flavour & taste. Being a chef for the most prestigious ocean liner company Cunard and helming the largest kitchen at sea, has made my dream and my life have the best of the best. Travelling to the most exotic places, working with 37 nationalities and cooking for Queen Elizabeth, Nelson Mandela, Rod Stewart has made me open my mind and think out of the box. I have kind of developed a style of my own cooking where produce is king. Global influences, local ingredients and modern techniques is the trinity of my cuisines. Aurus & Nido in Mumbai were the restaurants where I created some crazy food and were considered among the top eateries in the country.
Television is another medium where I share my recipes and belief that people can cook & eat at home very well. My vegetarian cook book Vicky Goes Veg is a cutting edge veg cook book where world flavours meet local markets in your homes. The book won the prestigious Gourmand Award for Best Vegetarian Cook 2015 this year. My newest show VICKYPEDIA which starts in Feb on Zee is a fun filled show with amazing recipes from all over the world.
Currently I work as Culinary Director for Everstone Capital and am responsible for Harry’s Bar all over India which is a relaxed bar with tasty comfort food and great cocktails. Next my new venture The Disgruntled Chef which will open shortly in Mumbai. It is a produce and technique driven placer boasts of delicious small plates, tapas, and hearty main meals to share.
