Chef Gaggan Anand – the food genius!
The 3 G Chef – Chef Gaggan Anand
Drawing on his memories of the amazing street food and the diversity of India’s different regional cuisines, Chef Gaggan Anand has used science and modern technology to create modernist and progressive re-interpretations of traditional recipes that have made his restaurant, ‘Gaggan’ one of the top culinary destinations in Bangkok. In India recently, for a pop up restaurant in Mumbai, I had a chance to interview him.
Read my interview in Deccan Herald’s Living here where he explains what progressive Indian food is all about and more.
In February 2013, Gaggan’ was voted at No. 10 at Restaurant Magazine’s inaugural edition of the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant list 2013. And later in May 2013, it was ranked at No. 66 in the magazine’s list of Top 100 Restaurants in the world. Last year he was voted the No. 3 restaurant in Asia and whooping no. 17 in world 50 best 2014, also winning the highest new entry award, climbing 49 spots was one of his greatest achievements so far. This year in 2015 it has been voted as No. 1 in Asia and No. 10 in the world with great success.
