    CLAIM TO FAME: NDTV Good Times’ Foodistan beamed Chef Mehrotra into drawing rooms across the subcontinent. Here he licked the competition- professional chefs from either side of the Indo-Pak border- to come out the winner. Before TV acclaim, Manish had won several accolades for his work at Indian Accent, Delhi’s contemporary Indian restaurant at the boutique property The Manor. He’s one of three chefs from the country (apart from Hemant Oberoi and Ananda Solomon) to have been invited to the World Gourmet Summit in Singapore.

    RESUME: After getting his hotel management degree from Mumbai, Manish worked there in Ananda Solomon’s team at the Thai Pavillion, Taj President’s cult Thai restaurant in the 90is. In 2000 he joined Rohit Khattar’s Old World Hospitality to head several restaurants including Oriental Octopus and Indian Accent in Delhi.

    SIGNATURES: Anything that marries regional Indian recipes with contemporary world food.

    LIVE TO EAT: “Mushroom risotto is my weakness,’ admits Manish. After the apron comes off he’s either at La Piazza, Olive or Diva in Delhi, satisfying his craving for Italian flavours. “In terms of an approach to the craft, I like simple and honest cooking like Rick Stein’s,’ he adds.

    YOUR TAKEAWAY: “Never follow any recipe like a bible. Use your instincts to modify and innovate.”
