Gaggan Anand has achieved wide acclaim for putting Indian food on the world map of fine dining with his progressive approach to cooking. By realising his dream of changing people’s attitudes to Indian food his restaurant, Gaggan, has been awarded Best Restaurant in Asia at the Asia 50 Best Restaurants awards three years in a row, which is a record. By reflecting on Indian spices and flavours and taking a Japanese-style approach of "less is more, more is less" his creations are both minimalist and sensational.
