This week as part of ED’s Foodies campaign we have with us the superbly talented Chef Aditya Bal!
Okay my female friends, enough drooling, already!
So without making you wait any further let’s see what he had to share with us (and of course you, my dear readers)!
Team ED: When was the eureka moment when you realised you wanted to be a chef and not a model?
Aditya Bal: I realised it when I had been cooking for a couple of months and was loving the process. I decided to make cooking my way of life and career. This was in 2009.
Team ED: What is your signature dish?
Aditya Bal: One of my favourites is a my Fillet of Snapper Papillote with mango and tender coconut.
Team ED: Best tip that you would like to give to young home cooks?
Aditya Bal: Enjoy the process and learn basic fundamentals like cooking techniques and knowing about your produce.
Team ED: What can we find in your browser history?
Aditya Bal: Recipe sites, cooking sites and history documentaries on YouTube.
Team ED: What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
Aditya Bal: Taken a whole year off to travel.
Team ED: Here is a fun RAPID FIRE we want you to answer without thinking much…
1. Ketchup or Mayonnaise – Mayo
2. Waffles or Crêpes – Crepes
3. Most used cuss word while cheffing – The f word
4. Vodka or Wine – Wine
5. Ideal dinner date – Deepika
Team ED: Thanks so much for your time and answers Aditya, we had a blast talking to you!
Aditya Bal: Likewise, thanks so much.
With that, it’s a wrap of this exciting edition of Friendly Fridays. Hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Stay tuned for the next edition of ED’s Foodies Campaign with another Top Chef from the country.
See you again next week, till then, Adios!
