Chef Prakash Kumar is the Executive Chef at The Woodrose. Kumar believes that food and cooking signifies a place in history, from the people to the vegetation. In conversation with Explocity.
I grew up in Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu.
Cooking, I believe is an art. This passion came to me from the food prepared by my mother.
I have been working as a chef for the past 22 years. I started my journey as a chef in 1995.
At the beginning of my career, I enjoyed cooking. However, slowly as an Executive Chef, I absolutely enjoy creating.
Yes, of course! Preserving authenticity of cuisine is important as it is the identity of a region, culture and partly history as well. It signifies the nature of place it belongs – from the vegetation to the people.
I enjoy eating our special Dal Makhani. And of course, my wife’s special Parippu Neertha Thanni (it’s like the Gujarati Osaman).
I have been in Bangalore since 2005.
Yes of course, it’s my second home.
