The Sum-mit of Good Food - Le Jardin, OberoiWednesday, June 15, 2016Me! In words
Chef Sumit's return to The Oberoi brought to mind something interesting that Gary Mehigan of Masterchef Australia recently told me in an interview about a trend he had noticed among chefs. He said that Australian chefs from 20-25 years ago all left the country to learn new techniques, flavours and methods, and then returned to Australia to apply their new found knowledge much to the delight of the locals. These travels and returns continue to happen, only to enhance the repertoire of a chef. If Chef Sumit's launch tasting menu (available till 24th of June) is anything to go by, his international sojourns and inspirations are going to go serious places here in Bangalore. I was invited to a preview of this tasting menu and here is what it was all about.
