Successful chefs need right attitude and spice knowledge

The right attitude is important when training to become a chef it has been suggested

Having the right attitude is just as important as using the correct spices when it comes to being a successful chef, it has been suggested.

In an interview with the Times of India, executive chef at Gurgaon hotel the Leela Kempinski Kunal Kapoor explained taking the correct approach to a career in catering is crucial.

"It was only when I started working as a professional that I realised that the right attitude is as important as the right spices when it comes to food," remarked Mr Kapoor, who left Delhi University to do a hotel management course and since found fame in the country by appearing on MasterChef India as a judge.

"You can say cooking is in my blood," he added, noting he developed a "fascination" with cooking from a young age as he was brought up in a family where it was traditional for men to cook on Sundays.

One leading London chef - Israeli Yotam Ottolenghi - recently told Big Hospitality that he intends to serve fresh food infused with herbs and spices at his new Nopi restaurant, which opens this month.
