Chef Satish Arora becomes first Indian to win international award

MS Ram

Satish Arora, director (Food Production) at Taj Sats - a joint venture of Taj group of hotels and Singapore Airlines - has been awarded the first international lifetime achievement award by Curry Club of UK, London. He becomes the first Indian to win this award.

The lifetime achievement award category was introduced last year. Arora won the award based on his contribution to the Indian hospitality industry, his involvement in the success of many restaurants of the Taj group and developing upgraded menus for airline catering. The award ceremony was held at Park Lane Hilton Hotel London. The Curry Club was founded in 1983 by Pat Chapman who also originated Good Curry Guide in 1984. Good Curry Guide is only Indian Restaurant Guide in UK. Accepting the award, Arora said, "I tried my level best to standardise the Indian food at Taj, which is the need of the hour. But there is still a lot to be done on this front as every chef is trying to do things the way they want which is not done in continental cuisines."

Arora was the youngest executive chef in the world at just 26 years of age at a five-star deluxe hotel. The highlight of his career was in 1983 when he was in charge of food for a summit meeting of 48 Commonwealth heads of government which was held in Goa for which British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi personally thanked him. Since then he has cooked all over the world for Queen Elizabeth and Queen Beatrix, numerous princes, prime ministers and presidents (including Bill Clinton, Mikhail Gorbachov and François Mitterrand).
