WIN A MEAL AT CALCUTTA BRASSERIE - Guess what the award winning chef is cooking to win... details here
Calcutta Brasserie is a stunning restaurant in a Grade II listed 17th century Chapel.
The first thing you'll notice when you walk in is the cathedral like domed ceiling painted with stars and the murals on the walls. It's unlike any other Indian restaurant but the differences are not limited to the decor. The food is equally opulent with their chef having recently won a prestigious gong at the British Curry Awards you can be sure of a sumptuous dining experience.
Saj Khan was officially named the second best chef in the whole of the UK at the Britain’s Best Indian Chef 2011 competition, held at Oxford & Cherwell Valley College.
Out of 430 applicants from around the country, Saj was shortlisted to the last nine and tasked to cook a three course meal in the grand final in front of an on-looking panel of judges.
To start with he cooked Ajwaini Sea Bass – pan fried Sea Bass flavoured with ajwain, fennel, served on roasted peppers and smoked tomato chutney. For main course, Spice-crusted Rack of Lamb - rack of lamb marinated with rosemary and garam massala, then seared and roasted, served with a traditional home style sauce beside a bed of spiced pumpkin, with an accompaniment of Caju & Nariyal Rice. For dessert; apple and chocolate crisp pan cake.
He followed this success by being named Asian Chef Of The Year at the Milton Keynes Food & Leisure Awards which was hosted by MKFM.
He faced tough competition from other local restaurants including The Kardamom Lounge and Zinga but was recognised for his culinary excellence and attention to detail.
Mo Abdul, proprietor at Calcutta Brasserie is delighted to have received recognition for this achievement, he said:
“It is such an honour to be awarded Best Asian Restaurant and Best Chef, everyone at the restaurant is over the moon. I am dedicated to providing a complete customer experience, whereby my customers can sample authentic Indian cuisine in an atmospheric environment, thank you to everyone who voted for us.”
Calcutta Brasserie also won the Restaurant Of The Year Award at the prestigious awards ceremony.
