Brar Found His Calling Through Kebab Vendors

Brar was born in Lucknow, the land of kebabs. Growing up, he became fascinated by the city’s street kebab vendors. His fascination transformed into his determination to be a chef at the age of 17. It happened after a kebab ustad, Munir Ahmed, taught the Indian chef about the finer points of making kebabs.

But, being from a respectable family of landowners brought hurdles to his cooking journey. Cooking was not considered an honorable profession back then and Brar had to work hard to convince his parents, especially his father, that cooking was a worthy career choice.

After successfully doing so, Brar enrolled himself at the Institute of Hotel Management in Lucknow, India.
