Chef Ajay Chopra, told us about how his destiny to be a chef was decided by God and that he did succeed in his endeavours because of his father’s determination and his constant support.

His journey began when he joined a Hotel Management institute and the turning point came when he started doing his Industrial Training where he felt that he could start building himself, “one onion at a time.” He started working with the Oberoi Group of Hotels and was a gold medalist of the Oberoi Centre for Learning and Development's (OCLD) culinary and management program.

His motto in life is to “work hard” and he does that by peeling one onion at a time. He taught us a lot about the culinary industry around the time he started doing it. He just kept on pushing his boundaries because he knew that this was the thing that he wanted to do. Mr. Ajay Chopra is one of the most renowned celebrity chefs of India and London.

Later, he also appeared in TV shows where he taught cooking to beginners and judged one of the famous cooking competitions-"Masterchef India, Season 1 and 2".
