AMIT MEHTA

EXECUTIVE CHEF

Amit's passion for baking and patisserie dates back to his days at hotel school, during which he couldn't bake a decent sponge cake! As a young chef growing up, the art of pastry making was something that really excited him, but was also something that he knew so little about. That curiosity and the quest for baking his first perfect cake took him to the Cordon Bleu in London, a culinary Mecca for any budding young chef. His training at the Cordon Bleu and the exposure to the pastry scene in London was nothing short of a pilgrimage. The most sophisticated of French and avant-garde cooking techniques were literally in the air and Amit happily caught the flu.

Amit has since worked at some of the best and most awarded F&B Operations around London, Mumbai and Singapore, leading and managing Pastry operations.

Amit's cooking style is a happy marriage of French and avant-garde cooking techniques, endeavoring to showcase optimum flavour, newer textures, and, in the process, creating sometimes quirky, but always, visually stunning dessert pieces.

Away from the kitchen (and sometimes within it) Amit indulges in being a stubborn, sarcastic wight.
