It was my grandfather's suggestion to be a cook : Saransh Goila, Celebrity Chef Author and Entrepreneur talks about his love for food
Updated on: 31 May 2016
When did you decided to become a chef?
I started cooking at a very earlier age as a hobby because my grandfather used to cook a lot in the kitchen. I used to watch cook shows especially Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's Khana Khazana and I would watch the show, note down the recipes and used to make it. As time flies I was thinking what to do and it was my grandfather's suggestion to be a cook. My mom wanted me to be a bio-tech engineer. And, it seems an instant career for me and that's when I decided to be chef.
What was the most exciting part of the journey?
When you cook for people and you see the joy. People come to you and praise your cuisine and food. It was a wedding night and I made 20 aloo parathe for entire family and the kind of attention I got was unforgettable. It is one of the royal memories I had. It made me realise what food is and how it made people react.
