Here is an excerpt from Chef Abhishek’s interview for our blog (What the Chef Said) Quality ingredients are crucial for any chef. There are standard specifications that we abide by to ensure everything that leaves our kitchen is top quality. We have specifications for every item used in the kitchen, such as:
• Packaged foods from vendors must be FSSAI certified. This is checked by a team comprising of purchase managers and chefs on a daily basis.
• We ensure ingredients come in a specified manner and are at the right temperature when we receive them.
• Most of our resorts and kitchens are ISO 22000 certified. It is mandatory that these processes are documented and adhered to, by everyone involved.
• We have ongoing training and set of internal as well as external audits that take place from time to time to ensure there are no lapses.
