After graduating from Catering College, he joined the Kitchen Training program at Fortune Park Hotels Ltd, ITC group. He began his carrier with Fortune Park Klassik hotel at Ludhiana. Soon after completing the training programme, he was promoted to the Corporate Head Quarters of Fortune as a Chef Operation Associate and gaining further experience. He was majorly involved in the pre-opening stage of about 17 units, designing and setting up kitchens. After seeing his outstanding performance, five years later he was posted as an Executive Chef in Fortune Park Lake City, Thane. It was a first branded hotel in Thane.

He is also associated with the Indian Culinary Forum (ICF) and Western Indian Culinary Association (WICA) since the past few years. He has participated in various culinary competitions around the country and looking forward to gain further exposure if any opportunity comes his way.

In his belief, there are too many ingredients which we actually don’t use when they are in a restaurant where both vegetarian and non-vegetarian cuisines are prepared. It was a challenge initially when he joined, but after few months, his mind was set for a vegetarian menu. He could use various ingredients to prepare his menu like turnips, soya, Tindli, local vegetables like laal math to name a few. Preparing delicacies with local vegetables is fun and we continue doing that and the finest product comes out at the end of the day.
In his current position, he managed to get the “Safe Food Destination” certification by TQS Global Management System by a firm, which audits hotels and restaurants globally. It’s an international accredited firm, which very few hotels in India have received.
