These award-winning german twins came and cooked up a storm in delhi.
In the last couple of years, India has been on the radar of some of the best chefs from across the world. From Massimo Bottura to Daniel Humm and Alain Passard to Marco Pierre White, some of the most celebrated international chefs have not only showcased their exquisite culinary skills to our people, but have in turn been extremely inspired by India’s varied and rich gastronomic heritage.
A few months ago, the Bangkok-based Sühring Twins, Michelin-starred Chefs Thomas and Mathias Sühring, made their way to Delhi on their maiden culinary trip to the Indian capital. They were in town for a 3-day pop-up at the Taj Mahal, New Delhi, where they served some of the signature dishes of their eponymous awardwinning restaurant in Bangkok, Sühring. Sühring is currently ranked #4 among Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, and has been #1 on Top Tables Bangkok for two consecutive years – A remarkable feat for a restaurant within two years of its opening (Sühring opened in February 2016).
We caught up with Thomas and Mathias Sühring over a quick têteà- tête before tasting some of their fabulous dishes, including the smoked lamb that was introduced at their restaurant just two weeks
prior to this trip. Here are some excerpts from our chat.
