A word from the Raconteur
Chef Ashok believe in tales, especially food tales and global food tales. There’s no such thing as a perfect food, only the idea of it, then the real purpose of striving toward perfection becomes clear. To make people happy. That's what cooking is all about. But to give pleasure, you should soak yourself in it. For me, it’s the satisfaction of cooking, communicating with my ingredients, my tools and my creations. My source of pleasure in cooking is respect for the food. Respect for food is respect for life for who we are and what we do.
