Anil Bhandari’s book – ‘ Top Chef Top Recipes – was released by Dr Mahesh Sharma, Minister of State (I/C) for Tourism and Culture, in New Delhi. The book has over 100 recipes from all parts of the country. Besides recipes, the book has sections for Indian masalas, spices, tips on table decoration and etiquettes of food service. The book was released at a ceremony held at The Ashok Hotel New Delhi which was attended among others by Dr Lalit Panwar, Secretary-Tourism, Government of India; Chef Sanjeev Kapoor, SK Misra, Chairman, Indian Trust for Rural Heritage Development, etc.

Releasing the book, Dr Sharma said that India’s food and culinary traditions forms part of Indian identity and we need to promote it for the benefit of tourism. Complimenting Bhandari for authoring a book on Indian recipes, the Minister said that “sharing of wisdom” by visionaries would go a long way in motivating generations.

Bhandari who was former Chairman & Managing Director of India Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC) has to its credit 45 years of experience in the travel and hospitality industry. This is his second book, first being ‘Tourism in India: An Economic Activity’. Speaking on the inspiration to write a book on recipes, Bhandari said that he always carried passion for food as well as cooking food himself. “Knowledge of food and beverage is very important for a hotelier. Chefs cook food, but somebody has to approve it.” He himself worked as a Chef in Germany and done kitchen planning for many hotels in during his career. When asked about the approach of the book, Bhandari said that the focus was to explain recipes in a “simple and straight” way so that a layman can cook food using these recipes. “Ultimate aim of the book is to promote Indian cuisines worldwide,” he said.
