About CHEF KARAN MEHTA

Seychelles india day

Introduction


I have been working within the hospitality industry for the past 30 years and have thoroughly enjoyed my responsibilities and opportunities to provide exemplary customer service. My experiences have made me very confident in dealing with people from family groups to the business sector and I am perceptive to their wants and needs.

I have learnt to empathize with the public and to be respectful of their cultural differences.

From the early days of my training to my current appointment it has always been my natural desire for excellence to create innovative dishes and menus to suit the needs of the customer and the style of the property.

My passion for perfection drives me to consistently produce all styles of foods to enhance any dining experience. My Indian background gives me an awareness of the importance of a wholesome and healthy selection of dishes, which are appealing to the eye and the palate.

I am adaptable and have good problem solving abilities. My technical skills and extensive repertoire enable me to create high quality products. I have often achieved this in challenging situations and in environments with limited resources.

My experience of working in a diverse range of hospitality establishments has given me the abilities to cope with irregular work shifts, long hours and to work at a fast pace in a busy environment.
