First chef from India to be invited to Le cordon Bleu to demonstrate in Paris. Monish is credited with the trailblazing turn-around of Moti Mahal, from being a small but iconic presence in Delhi, to becoming a multi-national corporation that is well on its way to defining how the world eats Indian food. A traditionalist, Monish has remained true to the signature dishes that made Moti Mahal a legend, while reinventing the dining experience into one that is exciting and avant garde to suit modern sensibilities.
Monish is one of the country’s foremost food- writers and is a regular columnist with India’s leading newspapers – The Hindustan Times (‘Food Wise’) and The Hindu (‘Food Trendz).
He has hosted several well-received cookery shows on television for NDTV and Doordarshan.
