Thanks a lot for kind words. Much appreciated.
This was the best experience ever. I hired this chef based on the reviews and his experience. This was for my boyfriends 40th birthday and the chef made this a night to forever remember. He was early, the food was splendid, he made us feel comfortable and he explained each dish. I will be hiring him again.Feb 6, 2020VerifiedFood Raconteur's reply
thanks Sanina for kind words. much appreciated.
Chef Ashok is a pure genius who amazes me with his culinary artistry and creativity. Ashok is the only one I know who can transform an authentic or age-old recipe to a level that is beyond human imagination. He is not a Chef who duplicates or perfects existing recipes but someone who creates recipes every single day.Feb 25, 2018Review from Facebook

This is the first time ever having a chef come to the house to make a 4 course meal for 16 people. It was laid back and at the same time we learned what Ashok was making for us. All on a timely manor. Excellent food.Jan 28, 2018Review from Facebook
My favorite part of Chef Ashoks food is that every piece of the menu tells a story that is thoughtfully catered to you. The blend of surprise ingredients and flavors, leaves you wanting more! Now Im dreaming about the Mango Panna Cotta again :)Mar 31, 2018Review from Facebook
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The pricing is purely based on the menu and ingredients and Chef s time and varies from case to case. The cost normally comprises of three elements food cost ( menu planning, buying, preparation), Chef Charges and transportation charges. If the client wants a help in the event/ bartender there would be additional charges.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?No Menu and no customer are the same. Each menu is uniquely designed based on the needs of the customer, nature of the event and the guests profile. We enjoy discussing the process with the customer about the event, their favorite cuisine/ food and come out with a menu which is unique every single time. We believe in a wonderful gastronomic experience to the customer. Once the menu is finalized we make a visit to the guests place to do a inspection and then we execute the event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Chef Ashok will delight you and your friends with this custom designed, Modern Fusion Cuisine.

Working with Top French Chefs and with the top Italian restaurants in Australia has taught him the art of perfection and culinary discipline which he practices.
