Know more about Michael Swamy:
Michael Swamy is a chef and culinary creative, a food stylist, and writer based in Mumbai, India. A graduate of the prestigious cordon bleu culinary school, London, Michael worked with several Michelin chefs who observed his work closely and encouraged him to enter the world of food media. His mother having been a successful documentary film-maker, Michael literally grew up in studios, closely studying and handling various aspects of media from handling cameras to editing. This experience coupled with his culinary expertise helped Michael in creating a sound base for a career in food styling and photography – an art which he used effectively in changing the way people look at food.
As a food writer, he not only writes extensively on food, but is also the author of “ The East Indian Kitchen” which won the gourmand award, 2011 for India.
Michael took his expertise further and put it to good use as the food consultant for MasterChef India season 1 & 2. Michael’s cooking style is very classic French and as a chef, Michael has worked with several large brands like the Taj group of hotels (Mumbai), Bombay Brasserie (London), Kuwait airways (Kuwait) as menu planner amongst a few other brands. It is his belief based on the fact that it is rarely that a chef is noticed while working with a large brand. It’s the chefs that step out and be different that make names for themselves.
The venue for this workshop is ‘At Fat Cat‘, a premium bar and bistro at Andheri, Mumbai.
