Lunch at Le Cordon Bleu Sydney
Custodian of the Moti Mahal brand meets with Le Cordon Bleu Sydney.

Le Cordon Bleu Sydney were fortunate to have a visit from renowned restaurateur, chef, blogger, and author Monish Gujral. His grandfather, Kundan Lal Gujral, is famed with inventing the ever popular butter chicken and dal makhani, and opening the Moti Mahal Restaurant. Monish has since kept his grandfather’s tandoori cuisine legacy alive by expanding the brand and launching a chain of restaurants.

Monish is a bestselling author, with his cookbooks On the Butter Chicken Trail, On the Kebab Trail, and Moti Mahal’s Tandoori Trail topping the bestseller’s list in several countries. He is also an avid and awarded food blogger.
A handful of staff, chefs and students were lucky enough to sit down together with him for lunch at the Ambassador restaurant, Ryde Campus, where Monish kindly donated some of his books to our library as well.

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.
