Chef Ananda Solomon



Biography

Chef Ananda Solomon is the Executive Chef of the Taj President and is well-known throughout India and the world as a culinary trailblazer. Though his background is in French cuisine, Solomon is perhaps best known for his restaurants serving his native Konkan cuisine, born from a desire to introduce Indians accustomed to North Indian tandoori food to South Indian fare. He was the only Indian chef selected to participate in the famous Slow Food event, Salone Del Gusto, in Italy in 2002 and the first Indian winner at the World Gourmet Summit.
