Chef / Patron - Sanjay Dwivedi
Our Head Chef/Patron at Zaika
in London's Kensington, Sanjay Dwivedi's
career has been both varied and colourful.
As a young man he
originally left home in South India and the family hotel business and came to London to complete a course in Hotel Management.
However a growing passion to pursue a career as a chef soon emerged, and saw Dwivedi working in some of London's finest kitchens, including The Ivy
, Le Caprice, Greenhouse, Coast and The Atlantic Bar and Grill.
During this time as he
gained in experience and success, he
craft and further enhanced his
understanding of the strict, almost military, disciplines of classic French techniques.
By combining this with his
innate knowledge in the application of Indian spices, Dwivedi's signature style began to emerge.
In January 2005, Dwivedi
took over restaurant Zaika
as Head Chef/Patron.
