A young Delhi boy, Chef Himanshu learned the nuances of cooking at a very young age from his mother, before joining Banarsidas Chandiwala Institute of Hotel Management & Catering Technology to hone his culinary skills.

Under the mentorship of Chef Manish Mehrotra of Indian Accent in Delhi, he quickly rose up in the ranks. From the very beginning, Chef Himanshu’s mission has been to change the perception of Indian cuisine and elevate how we experience Indian food today. 

“I come from an agricultural family in India. I grew up spending a lot of time around fresh produce, herbs, and flowers. This has created an innate inclination towards using locally sourced ingredients. Indian food has so much to offer, with such diversity in the landscape, produce, culture and cuisine."

Today, Chef Himanshu is considered one of the youngest tastemakers in Indian cuisine globally, with Tresind & Tresind Studio two award-winning restaurants based in Dubai.
