President AIHT Sandeep Marwah With Chef No 1 Daniel Humm

At Eleven Madison Park—ranked No 1 on the world’s 50 best restaurants list in 2017—simplicity and minimalism are driving a culinary revolution. Bringing to India a taste of his New York based restaurant, co-owner and chef Daniel Humm was in India recently who was invited by Sandeep Marwah to Asian Institute of Hospitality and Tourism Noida.

The World Series by American Express hosted two dinners with Humm in Mumbai and Delhi at The St Regis Mumbai and The Leela Palace New Delhi respectively. We catch up with the chef ahead of the dinners to understand what it takes for him to be on top.

Growing up in Switzerland, chef Humm developed an appreciation for fresh, local ingredients early on. He has vivid childhood memories of going to the farms with his mother to buy produce and watch her cook whatever was in season. “Great ingredients are the starting point of a great dish. But it’s what you do with those ingredients that really makes them shine,” he says. Today, Humm’s biggest inspirations are New York’s cultural history and agricultural bounty, which can be seen in the smallest details at his restaurant.

Humm sums up his food philosophy quite simply. “I want to really connect with the guests; give them something they’ve had before, but give it to them in a reinvented way.”

AIHT wants to produce some extra ordinary chefs for national and international market, our target is that good food always attract customers from all the regions,” said Sandeep Marwah President of AIHT.

His six world records are unique and interesting.

Sandeep Marwah is one of the rare Indian who got an opportunity to speak in house of common when many dignities were present from all over the England and other countries to celebrate an event to project World Is One Family.

Marwah started with a couplet in Hindi language in his deep classical voice to mark respect to his motherland. Sabhi Diyan Se Subh Sunder, Bhav Vichaar Bhare Nit Anther, Punya Dhara Ban Jaye Swarag Ye, Maire Yaton Se Karunakar

Respected Bob Blackman Member Parliament and Chairman of All Party Parliamentary Groups, H.H. RajRajeshwar Guru Ji, Acharya Dr. Lokesh Muni Ji, dignities on the dice and my dear friends what I am trying t tell you in these lines that whether it is North or South, East or West, India or Abroad, Whether you are on the top of the hill or standing at sea shore, you may be looking at colorful flowers in a lush green garden or may be looking at the most beautiful women on Earth but there two things which are most beautiful , better than what you can see with your naked eye, and that is your feelings and Your thinking and the best part is that both exists within you.

Friends on this very auspicious day lets pray almighty, Hey Lord give me good thinking and give me good feelings so that I can do good Karmas and through my good deeds I would love to convert this earth into Heaven, I hope you agree with me. People on the dice and audience clapped heavily and were spell bound by the speech and choicest words used by Marwah.

I belong to film, television, media and entertainment World we have never believed in division of society on the basis of cast, creed, color, religion, and community. We have only one dharma, one religion and that is Entertainment. Keep the society happy. But still I have gone out of way to divide the society into three segments.

He uttered another couplet in Hindi: Kaam Suru Karte Nahin Bhaya Se Niche Log, Madhyam Tajte Beech Main Dekh Visham Sanyog, Par Uttam Ve Log Jo Har Durgam Pat Zehl, Dritha Se Barthe Kadam, Badhan Ko Thel. The audience who understands Hindi clapped for Marwah and compensated for the whole hall.

People who are lazy, no motivation in life, never been enthusiastic they are the downtrodden people of the society, people with little motivation may start but minute they see bit of the hindrances may show back to the battle field they are middle class but people who are ready to face all sorts of hindrances, unforeseen circumstances, motivated, enthusiastic, ready to face, they have zest, they know their goals and ready to work hard are the people of first category. They are the achievers. And what you need to achieve is a very strong determination. Determination is key to success. I am so lucky that today I am sharing this dice and this committee roon of House of Common in British Parliament with so many achievers at the same time. The energy is oozing out of the historical hall, which I can feel immensely.

I extend my heartiest thanks to all the organizers who all have put in so much in this event, British Government, The Prime Minister of United Kingdom, Member Parliament Bob Blackman, Rajrajeshwar Guru Ji for honoring me in British Parliament. I will never forget this gesture of love and affection. I am carrying large memories from this historical event. This has added a lot to India and British relations.

Nothing can be achieved without hard work and going through fire. You have to face all sorts of circumstances to be called achiever. Your job is to put your best in best of the circumstances happily. Be a light to rest of the World. Make yourself so perfect that People should follow you. Develop that kind of energy, which can remove the darkness from the society. Life is full of unexpected circumstances, but learn to laugh at the problems and difficulties. India and United Kingdom both are best friends and will remain friends forever. Jai Hind.

Each and every one appreciated the emotional presentation and paperless speech by Marwah. He became the star of the day. People rushed to him for autographs and photographs. Selfies worked better be a parliamentarian, police officers, security guards, businessmen, or awardees. This was an important day for Indian too. Not many Indians have been able to touch those heights in British Parliament. Marwah thanked his Indian Government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for encouraging people like him to do work in arts and culture.
