Flash-grilled: Sameer Taneja

Oct 2, 2020

What was your first industry job?​ Rajvillas Jaipur, India – part of Oberoi Hotel Group. If you weren’t in kitchens, what would you do?​ Stand-up comedian. What industry figure do you most admire, and why?​ Chef Pierre Koffmann - my mentor, my hero, my God! I have followed him since I was young, and I am extremely blessed to have had an opportunity to work for him at Koffmans. Cooking is religion for him rather than a passion or job and his presence in the kitchen makes it a ‘temple’. There are of course a few others, who helped me in on this amazing journey. Pet hate in the kitchen?​ Blank knives and distraction using smart phones. Sum up your cooking style in a single sentence…​ Simple, clean and precise. What’s the worst review you’ve ever had?​ Although a negative review does hurt, they keep us on track. I see all feedback as constructive and always take it very seriously. What advice would you give someone starting out in the industry?​ Little steps at a time, keep your head down and learn and document every recipe. Which single item of kitchen equipment could you not live without?​ Pestle and Mortar. My mum’s rajma chaawal (kidney bean curry with steamed rice). À la carte or tasting menu?​ A la carte. What’s the best meal you’ve ever had in a restaurant?​ Tough call. I love my food and always remember a good meal but to name a few, a meal cooked by Nathan Outlaw and another one at Pujol in Mexico City. MasterChef or Great British Menu?​ Great British Menu. Most overrated food?​ Gold leaf – it’s just an expensive ingredient and does not add any flavour to the dish. Twitter or Instagram?​
