They say the way to man’s heart is through his stomach, so much in love with food that Saransh Goila has given up all his being to cooking. The only life-rule for this Delhi based 27 years old chef is ‘of the food, by the food, for the food’. He holds a degree in food photography, a trained chef from the Institute of Hotel Management Aurangabad, done acting course at Barry John’s institute just to become a food show presenter and is a food columnist with a well known magazine. Like Paulo Coelho said when you want something so much, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. Today he is hosting TV show Roti Rasta Aur India a travelogue covering 20,000 Km by road in 100 days discovering the rich cuisines of India which makes him the holder of Limca Book of Records, first chef to do so. Also he is anchoring a show called Healthy Fridge where he transforms the left-over in the regular fridge into lip-smacking and healthy one.
Saransh Goila loves to play around with Indian gastronomy giving personal touch with his knowledge of Italian cuisine. Some of his fascinating recipes are Pesto Golgappa, Sandalwood Kebabs, Pickled Chicken Canape, Spaghetti Moily, Basil Butter Chicken, Oreos ke Pakode, Cheese in a Parcel, Beetroot Toast with Chocnuts, Broccoli Bacon Parantha and Tindli Risotto. But his on demand signature dish is butter-chicken also known as ‘Koyla Goila Butter Chicken’. Looks like he is a man with good taste!
