Apart from Chef Rozario’s continuous integration of various forms of food cultures and creating a blend of fusion of taste, his recent highly successful collaboration with the US Poultry Association was a step towards forging greater International cooperation in presenting newer tastes.
Speaking on receiving the felicitation, Chef Pradip Rozario said, ” I am deeply honoured with this recognition, as the Rotary International is one of the few truly Global organization and their acknowledgement of my efforts to transcend International boundaries and bringing different food cultures on one table is very humbling. I shall continue to strive towards making global cuisine a local phenomena through continuous experimentation.”
