About Chef

Chef Sasadhar Bhumia

I still remember my childhood days when I used to see Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's show. I was so amazed and inspired and always thought if I could be in that place, in a cookery show, preparing different recipes and showing off to the world my culinary skills. I always wanted to create different foods that would make people around me happy and appreciate my efforts. So cooking happened to me as a hobby. My parents were my real support and helped me a lot for me to reach my goal of becoming a chef. I would definitely want to be a chef in my next life as well
