Chef Parvinder Bali brings his vast experience, knowledge and authentic recipes to offer guests at Frangipani, a ‘The Taste of Paradise’.

Kashmiri food is mild in taste and rich in flavor with high use of hot spices like cardamom, fennel, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and saffron. Influenced by Mughals, Kashmiri cuisine is predominantly non-vegetarian, with mutton, chicken or fish used as prime ingredients but there are a few delicacies for vegetarians too! Kashmiri delicacies are a treat with the use of ghee and dry fruits, especially in the preparation of curries. Kashmiri rice or pulao is very aromatic and light. Popular lip-smacking desserts from the Kashmiri cuisine are the Phirni, Shufta, Panjeeri, Shakar Pareh, Kasaar, Sevaiyyan, and many more.

Who else can understand the finer nuances of Kashmiri cuisine except for a native of Kashmir, which is what Chef Parvinder Bali is. Hailing from Baramulla in Kashmir, Chef Parvinder Bali graduated from the Institute of Hotel Management in Kolkata in the year 1993 and joined The Oberoi Center of Learning and Development to build his career in the kitchens with The Oberoi Group of hotels.

He recently represented India in the World Skills Competition in Leipzig as an expert. He has worked with world-renowned MOF pastry chefs like Stephane Treand, Stephane Glacier, Jean Francoise Arnaud, Sebastian Chevalier, Martin Lippo, and Fredrick Morceau. Chef Parvinder Bali has also authored five books, which are prescribed textbooks for catering colleges in India, Kenya, Nepal, and Malaysia.
