Chef Gurjyote Sethi

Growing up in a business family and fascinated by his grandmother´s cooking, Gurjyote always dreamed of combining that entrepreneurial spirit with food.  With vibrant Indian spices and flavours running through his veins, by grade 9, he was determined to one day be a trained chef. His culinary journey started in 1999, upon graduation from Institute of Hotel Management, in New Delhi. There, he worked as a kitchen trainee with Hyatt Regency and eventually worked his way up to become the Executive Chef for The Taj Hotel. Over the past 20 years, he has been nurtured by some of the  world´s best chefs, at some of the top hospitality brands, including Mariott, Crowne Plaza, Intercontinental, and Aman Resorts. He honed his entrepreneurial spirit when he opened a food joint in New Delhi´s, Greater Kailash 1 Market. In India, he cooked for Honorable Prime Minister of India, Mr. Narinder Modi, Bollywood stars and directors, musicians, and the German Ambassador.

His chef journey took a turn when he had the opportunity to work for an upscale restaurant in Scotland. From there, he continued to travel the world, exploring with his taste buds, absorbing cooking techniques and building his spice box. He has now become accomplished at both traditional Indian cooking as well as modern world cuisine. Six years ago, he was welcomed by the warm-hearted people of Canada, who recognized his talent and skill. He worked with the Fairmont Hotels, completed his Red Seal Chef certification, and opened his catering company, GJ´s Kitchen, in Surrey. In Canada, he has had the opportunity to cook for Defence Minister Jason Kenny, Multicultural Minister Tim Uppal, and the Minister for Children and Women´s Development. He is proud to showcase his home culture and present it to our guests, at Cook Culture.
