Indian chef wins in another American show


New York: Indian chef Aarthi Sampath, who had earlier won the American reality-based cooking show "Chopped" has now emerged as the winner of "Beat Bobby Flay."

Seattle based Sampath, whose winning dish was Biryani, said in a statement to IANS: "I feel elated for the opportunity to represent Indian culture in the western market. Biryani although is nostalgia to others, it's still not very known, rather the complexity of making it."

Sampath's foray into the culinary world began with an exploration of flavors found in the diverse kitchens of Mumbai and eventually led to her position as Chef De Cuisine at Junoon, a Michelin starred Indian restaurant in New York.
