The Leela Palace New Delhi has appointed Chef Shimomura Kazuya as the new head chef at the hotel’s modern Japanese restaurant, Megu.
Backed with 26 years of rich culinary experience, Chef Kazuya is set to bring intense excitement, exquisite technique and perfectly balanced flavours to the discerning diners at Megu.
Chef Kazuya has garnered acclaim for his seamless integration of modern and traditional Japanese cuisine and has worked with globally recognised kitchens of Hinokizaka at Ritz Carlton Tokyo and in the Michelin-starred restaurant Mizumi at Wynn Macau.
In his initial years, Chef Kazuya mastered the art of Tempura and acquired the skill of curating Kaiseki –a sought-after traditional multi-course Japanese-style dinner.
He loves to experiment with sensory perceptions of sound, sight and smell while whipping some exotic delectable platters.
