The award ceremony will take place in Macau on March 26. According to Forbes, the award recognises unique female chefs whose potential is ready to inspire the next generation of cooks.
Garima passed out from Mumbai’s Jai Hind College and then worked as a pharma journalist, before she left for Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. She then worked at popular restaurants, before opening Gaa and also worked along with Gordon Ramsey and Rene Redzepi.
Garima aims to change the global mindset about Indian cuisine.
Indian food could be the future of modern cuisine. But then again it’s upto us Indian cooks to do justice to that.
Revolutionising Indian food, one dish at a time and cooking her way through hearts and awards alike.
