Atul Kochhar’s unique talent as a twice Michelin starred chef has changed the way people perceive and experience Indian cuisine. As the very first Indian chef to receive a Michelin star in 2001, he then went on to open the highly acclaimed Benares Restaurant & Bar in UK, for which he was awarded the second Michelin star in 2007 and he has successfully retained it for 11 years now.
In 2008 Atul opened his first restaurant in Ireland, and in 2012 India Essence, a neighbourhood restaurant in Kent, which was shortly followed by fine-dining restaurant Rang Mahal in Dubai. Atul’s international success has continued on the seas, with a unique collaboration with P&O cruises. Most recently, in November 2014, Atul opened Sindhu, a traditional Indian restaurant with a contemporary twist, at Macdonald Compleat Angler in Marlow (Buckinghamshire)
South America is as diverse as Asia if not more.
We have gone after Mexico, Brazil and Peru for the inspiration.
Ceviches from Peru, Grills from Brazil and street cuisine from Mexico.
It will be mixture of excellent ingredients, out there cooking techniques and riot of colours.
Then on top of that South America is all about sassy music and dance – that would make this place a true hang out joint!
