Sanjeev Kapoor: My Family Had Never Been to a Restaurant
MUMBAI (IANS) – Celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor will be talking about how he entered the field of cooking on ‘The Kapil Sharma Show‘.
Appearing as a special guest on the show with popular chefs Kunal Kapur and Ranveer Brar, he made an interesting point.
It was in response to an observation by Brar, “Fact of the matter is that we watched him (Sanjeev Kapoor) growing up but we don’t know who he watched.”
To this Sanjeev Kapoor replied, “When I entered this field, at that time, nobody from my family had ever been to restaurants. I didn’t even know what the word chef meant or how it was pronounced. In the house where I used to live, we used to order dosa, samosa, jalebi from Punjab Sweet House. The Sardarji who would cook there would make us dosas and we did not know what or who a ‘chef’ is.”
Kapur also recalled how his grandmother would taunt him that if he did not study well, he would become a ‘halwai’. And this became a reality as he is now a well-known chef.
