By  |  0 Comments

Restaurateur and chef Monish Gujral is out with a new book, and in a strange departure from the norm, this time, it’s about desserts from around the world. The custodian of the Moti Mahal brand has previously released On the Tandoori Trail (2005), On the Butter Chicken Trail (2009) and On the Kebab Trail (2013).
For the new book, Gujral has traipsed from country to country in search of delicious stories about 80 different sweets. From the creme brulee that created a Cold War-like situation between France and Britain to the Sachertorte from Austria that was the subject of a long trademark battle, these anecdotes and recipes find their way into On the Dessert Trail. For more on the new release, check out this week’s Sunday mid-day.

First chef from India to be invited to Le cordon Bleu to demonstrate in Paris. Monish is credited with the trailblazing turn-around of Moti Mahal, from being a small but iconic presence in Delhi, to becoming a multi-national corporation that is well on its way to defining how the world eats Indian food. A traditionalist, Monish has remained true to the signature dishes that made Moti Mahal a legend, while reinventing the dining experience into one that is exciting and avant garde to suit modern sensibilities.
