OUR RENOWNED CHEF
Setting the New Standard
At Curry Kitchen, a wide variety of Indian & Nepali dishes are prepared in styles ranging from traditional, southern, Indo-Chinese, to Goan. The Kadhai pan and the Tandoori oven are among the Indian utensils and equipment used in Narendra Singh Saud’s kitchen as he prepares each dish.
Narendra began cooking at an early age in the kitchens of his mother and grandmother in Nepal, never thinking that it would become his profession. Everything was fresh and organic. His father soon began working in Mumbai, India and that was where Narendra would grow up. Learning about different cuisines stimulated his interest in other cultures, however, and he began to associate foods with the richness and diversity he found in the arts of cultures.
At age 17 he began working in restaurants; first as a helper, soon progressing to assistant cook. Knowing then that this was his chosen field, he applied for a three-year training program with the Marriott hotel
in Mumbai and began professional education, learning from many master
chefs. After the program’s completion,
His professional journey took him to Dubai, and not long after, he was promoted to supervisor and transferred to Kuwait. Eventually he worked for elite hotel groups such as Intercontinental, Jumerah,Marriott and Kempinski. He had the opportunity to join the staff of the Ritz Carlton on Grand Cayman Island where he was able to learn more thoroughly to prepare fine Caribbean cuisine. This Ritz Carlton location hosts the annual Cayman Cook Out, where he worked with famous chefs such as Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert.
Narendra was transferred to the Sarasota Ritz Carlton in 2011. After this journey of fifteen years working with master chefs and learning many high cooking techniques, Narendra and his wife, Sushila, have decided to settle in Sarasota to begin raising a family and they are striking out on their own Restaurant, offering diners a more refined atmosphere for enjoying traditional, authentic Indian dishes. Then in 2020 They move to Austin area for new adventure.
