Gaggan Anand - The World's Best Indian Chef


The street food of his home town of Kolkata and a formative stint at El Bulli
are the twin inspirations behind chef Gaggan Anands boundary-pushing
restaurant in downtown Bangkok. Set up in 2010 and taking top spot in this
years Asias 50 Best Restaurants, Gaggan reinvents regional Indian cuisine
using modernist cooking methods. The approach is playful, adventurous and

A Spreadsheet for Mistakes


A foodie can have the passion and skills to start a business, but is it enough to
bring home the bacon? Keeping track of stocks and cash ow while ensuring
that costs and inventory remain under control are crucial parts of restaurant
management. On the panel we have folks who deal with large scale cooking
under stringent inventory, prep, production and delivery management. How
can we save a few bucks and even time? We learn from the experienced
banquet and catering companies who have burnt holes through their
pockets.

11.45 - 12.30 pm Change is Not the Only Constant


Consistency, consistency, consistency. Weve all heard this before and felt
the pangs of pain and frustration when the quality of a well loved restaurant
begins to decline. Consistency is pivotal to ensuring both the expansion and
longevity of your business. So where would consistency be king? The answer
lies in your service quality, supply chain management and of course, your
sta.
