Vineet Bhatia came to London in 1993 with only his love for Indian cuisine and his passion for cooking in his suitcase. Since then he has procured several restaurants, is the first Indian chef to receive one Michelin star, has released a successful cookbook, recorded a TV series and is hailed as the face of modern, progressive Indian cuisine.
His recipe for success lies in his creations, because they do not adhere to the norms of traditional Indian cuisine. The combinations and contrasts of textures, aromas and temperatures as well as a practically infinite range of ideas are Bhatia’s own creations. His simple, imaginative dishes are based on an idyllic balance between innovation and the utmost respect for the art of Indian cuisine – for which he received his first Michelin star in 2006 with his Rasoi restaurant (“Kitchen” in Hindi) in London.
