I would like to give all the credit to my institution Taj and its work ethics.

Editor: what according to you makes a chef great?
Kiran: Cooking is a science as well as an art, ofcourse being passionate about your job is a must and in today's world it's a lot to do with your man - management skills as well. There is no place for complacency and ego, just keep learning everyday and explore the intricacies of cuisine's with a child like curosity.

Editor: How is Australia treating you?
Kiran: Great place for food as people love to dine and are erudite about food as well. Believe me its lot more challenging than i thought, the work culture is very different than what we are exposed towards.
