“Warm greetings from Lucerne city. I, Sagar Satam, would like to greet all the Member Chefs and Elite Panel of the World Master Chefs Society and thank you for acknowledging my profile on a world platform. For the past 14 years I have belonged to the hospitality industry and I am very passionate about being a Chef. Never did I think during the course of my career, which started with humble beginnings as a dish washer, that I could reach to a position where I have been recognised as a World Master Chef in the wide world of gastronomy. I had the privilege to serve for renowned hospitality chains like Four Seasons, Holiday Inn, Crown Plaza, Jumeriah Group and achieved remarkable heights in hospitality services at luxurious Hotels worldwide.
Taking up new challenges is my X-Factor which led to my present assignment as Head Chef and Operations Manager of an authentic Maharastrian restaurant, “Mee Marathi”, in Lucerne, the heart of Switzerland. The world has been prominently dominated by Indian cuisine from the northern part of India, it was a challenge to bring a less renowned cuisine from the state of Maharashtra to Europe. Also, it is necessary for Indian gastronomy to showcase other regional Indian cuisines on the world plate and portray India as a multi gastronomical destination, apart from its rich cultural heritage. My motivational quote for all those people who aspire to become a Chef is “Give your blood, sweat and tears to the profession of Chef and be patient. It will reward you when the time is right”.
