Before getting into full-fledged baking, my first lesson to my students includes a class on the importance of discipline, attitudes and attributes of a chef, cleanliness and hygiene, and social responsibility.9. Any dessert by your students that's managed to bowl you over?
There was one student from my last batch of the Diploma program who created the most delicious sourdough ice-cream.10. Congratulations for being listed on Forbes 30 under 30' Asia list for 2016. What else would you like to achieve before hitting your 40s?
Thank you. Ten years into the future is indeed a very long time from now. So much could change by then; in this world or even in my personal life. However, although my focus for now will remain in baking, a part of me also is incredibly inclined towards our environment and finding sustainability in all that we do. For starters, we have already been a part of many tree planting drives around Bengaluru with the hope of bringing back our city's glorious days.
I hope we can inculcate in our students a personal responsibility towards our lifestyle and the environment. Chefs have an array of specific duties to carry out on a daily basis in the kitchen. Taking care of our environment needs to be top priority. Therefore, with this in the forefront, I will be striving for a fully sustainable culinary school. So in the next ten years, if I can achieve it, it will make me happy. Very happy.
