THE EARLY YEARS
The Making Of A Michelin-Starred Chef
Rohit’s love affair with food began in his mother’s kitchen, in his native Punjab, India.
He went on to study Indian cuisine at the Institute of Hotel Management in New Delhi, before perfecting his craft at some of most esteemed hotel groups across the country, including the Oberoi Hotels and Resorts as well as The Taj Hotels and Resorts.
After moving to the UK, Rohit worked and headed kitchens at some of London’s leading Indian restaurants such as Benares, Trishna, Gymkhana, Hoppers and most recently Jamavar and Bombay Bustle.
Rohit is the first Indian chef to have won a Michelin star for Jamavar within ten months of the restaurant’s opening.
Continually striving for excellence, Chef Ghai was invited by the Government of India, as one of an elite group of chefs who have made their country proud, to attend the World Food 2017 event, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
