Jyran, Mumbai BKC gets a new Masterchef

Waris Hasan Qureshi is the newest Indian master chef at Jyran, and he is introduced by the stylish, opulent Sofitel Mumbai BKC. Qureshi, an Awadhi, Hyderabadi, and Kashmiri cuisine expert, will now supervise the acclaimed trademark restaurant, which serves delectable fare inspired by the Northwest Indian Frontier Province.

As a voracious reader, Qureshi spent his formative years in a sleepy Lucknow village, learning about inventive Indian cooking from his great-grandfather, Mohammed Yusuf Qureshi, who served as the Nawab Wajid Ali Shah’s personal chef in the 18th century. He developed an interest in food and cuisine at the age of 12 after becoming fascinated by the tales of the feasts his grandfather prepared for the Nawabs and his visitors. His father, who now owns a catering business in Lucknow, is carrying on his great-grandfather’s legacy. 

In 2013, he started his culinary career at Tote on the Turf. After eating at Blue Waters, he went to Oakwood, which is now Z-Luxury Residences, for a scheduled appointment. With his newly acquired talents, Qureshi entered the hotel industry over time and quickly joined Marriott International with the JW Marriott Mumbai Sahar, where he started concentrating on specialized menus and cuisines. After that, he immediately joined two hotel chains: the Bengaluru Marriott Whitefield and the Conrad Pune, where he quickly rose through the ranks from senior chef de partie to junior sous chef (Indian master chef).

In all of his jobs, Qureshi stayed committed to creating fresh, distinctive menus that emphasized traditional, genuine flavors and celebrated specialty cuisines through food festivals and obscure recipes. Awadhi Gosht Dum Biryani, Shahi Gosht Ki Gilawat, Kakori Kebabs, and Nalli Nihari are a few of his specialties.

He is a powerful force in the kitchen due to his extensive understanding of cooking methods and his access to family-secret recipes. With his entry surely the food culture of Mumbai is going to get a boost along with more experts uplifting Indian cuisines.
