Learn about his vision of combining what he ate growing up in India with what is grown here in the United States. This program was sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.

"As my mother always said, most people eat to live, I live to eat."

"I've always had the dream to mix Indian and Western foods since I began cooking...I wanted to adapt what we ate in India to what [ingredients] we have here [in the United States]."

"At Union Square Hospitality Group, we believe that your technical skills should form 49% of you are and 51% of who you are should be your niceness."

"As a chef you're always in control. You ask somebody to jump they say how high. When you're on TV that's not the case - you're at the mercy of producers."
