Celebrated Indian chef Sanjeev Kapoor will join owner-chef Ranjan Dey Nov. 6 at his New Delhi Restaurant here for a collaborative culinary event.
Highlighting the partnership between two talented chefs, the event will benefit Compassionate Chefs Cafe, a San Francisco-based non-profit founded by Dey.
The two-part series will introduce guests to the vibrant cuisine of India as interpreted by Kapoor and the Indian American chef Dey. Kapoor will merge his modern take on Indian cuisine with Dey’s traditional fare influenced by the American palette.
Both chefs are looking to highlight the modern direction that Indian cuisine is headed toward by inviting guests to experience one of two exclusive culinary events: A champagne brunch reception from noon to 2 p.m., with an intimate meet and greet with chef Kapoor priced at $50 per person. The other option is a ten-course, family style wine dinner ($150 per person) from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The extensive dinner will showcase the Indian dining experience at its best, alongside a Q&A session with Kapoor regarding his influence on Indian cuisine.
Kapoor is one of the most celebrated faces of South Asian cuisine today, with best-selling cookbooks, a popular television show (“Khana Kazana”), and numerous culinary accolades. His awards include Best Chef of the Year by the Indian Ministry of Tourism and the Hall of the Fame Award from The Star of the Industry.
All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Compassionate Chefs Café, which works with the Tenderloin After School Program and Gandhi Ashram in Ahmedabad, India. TASP serves as a shelter and provides children with necessary support and training to move beyond poverty. The Gandhi Ashram assists with improving water supply, medical care, and eating facilities.
