    India comes to Gstaad, Bollywood to the Gstaad Palace

    Originally from Delhi, Ravi Bajaj has lived in Manchester since 1997. He used to cook for the guests of the world-famous Taj Hotel in Mumbai, now he is head chef in his own enterprise: With his innovative DILLI concept, he caused quite a stir in the Indian restaurant scene of Britain. For the past five years, Ravi Bajaj has been guest chef at the Gstaad Palace. While here, he usually offers three or four of his classic dishes, such as the tandoori chicken with its vibrant red colour that stems from saffron.

    Ravi’s recipes have style. His classics come with a certain twist, a trace lighter, a trace more playful. Together with head chef Franz W. Faeh he offers Palace guests a delightfully exciting menu at our Grand Restaurant during the entire summer season – a treat for eyes and taste buds alike.
