We held an Indiaspora Holiday Culinary Show with dear friend and world renowned Chef Srijith Gopinathan of Taj Campton Place San Francisco, the Executive Chef of one of the only Indian restaurants to be awarded two Michelin stars. He offered a fabulous virtual culinary demonstration for our members, several of whom cooked alongside him in their kitchens.
Chef Srijith demonstrated simple yet mouth-watering items (vegetarian- and health-forward) for the Diwali and Thanksgiving holiday season.
In addition to the Michelin accolade, Chef Srijith and Campton Place were awarded 3.5 stars from the San Francisco Chronicle for his food. His regular forays to Bay Area farmers markets inspire him to combine peak-season ingredients with spice route flourishes that enhance, but never overwhelm. His nuanced palate enables him to create balanced flavors in dishes that surprise and delight. Chef Srijith’s versatility and depth of knowledge are such that he regularly enters the pastry realm, creating the restaurant’s elegant desserts. Chef Srijith truly values his time in San Francisco, a city he believes affords chefs and diners the best ingredients on the planet.
