Prashant Sharma-

‘Ghee sugar in your mouth’. This coincides with my first international trip and that was to the United States for a food festival in West Palm Beach, Miami. This incident happened when I joined a firm called Hopping Chef in Lower Parel from Oberoi. It was just 7 days ago when I got to know from the owner of this place that we are representing Indian food at an important event in February 2016. Chef Michelle Swamy (Celebrity Chef) and I were supposed to be a part of this event which was discussed in January 2016.

When I discussed this event with Chef Michelle, after all the conversation about the event and planning, I told him that it should be abroad and not in India because of the planning and food that we have implemented. I thought he was of international standard. And, Chef Michel said something along the lines of this proverb in his own language and smiled.
