Have you been watching the current season of MasterChef Australia? My favourite contestant throughout the season has been Rishi Desai, who eventually reached the top four (I won't spoil the end for you!) In a recent interview with Antoine Lewis, Gary Mehigan (one of the MasterChef judges) had said "Rishi is very creative; he wants to turn Indian food upside down". We have already seen some inventive twists on Indian food from Rishi - those modak-like dumplings with soy-caramel that he made last week got some high praise.
I was absolutely delighted when Rishi agreed to be interviewed for the blog! Presenting the Marathi mulga from Kolhapur who is revolutionising Indian food Down Under.
