Inside and outside the kitchen with Chef Ritu Dalmia


Ritu Dalmia - Profile shotThis article was first published on India Art n Design.

Those of you, who are familiar with the Ritu Dalmia touch that gives a distinctive flavour to Italian cuisine (she’s known as the Queen of Italian cuisine, after all), will agree with me, when I say that the stately lady has a whole lot of taste!

At her best in a pair of jeans and Rajesh Pratap Singh kurtas, comfort and style run high in her ensemble that is complete with her fetish for shoes – she has brogues in practically every colour!

Grilled Chicken, Corn and Cheese QuesadillaHer deep respect for Chef Manish Mehrotra of Delhi’s Indian Accent and for Italian restaurant La Calendre’s Massimilliano Alajmo for whom, she feels, food is akin to poetry, brings us to realize that the burst of creative energy that Ritu showcases with her culinary skills has an instantaneous connect with her love for all things Italian; and that includes her life philosophy, which can best be summed up in the Italian saying, ‘passerà’ that translates as ‘this too shall pass’.
