Chef Thomas Zacharias brings a variety of experiences to the Bombay Canteen. These experiences have been the result of working in different kitchens across the globe. Chef Thomas culinary journey started at a very young age, inspired by his Grandmother’s home-cooked food. Keen to explore this passion further, in 2003, Chef Thomas enrolled at the Welcomgroup Graduate School of Hotel Administration in Manipal, Karnataka. After graduating at the top of his class, Chef Thomas moved on to study further at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in 2007. Upon graduating with high honours from the CIA, he worked at the celebrated three-star Michelin restaurant- La Berenardin - in New York City where he gained invaluable experience under Chef Eric Ripert. Chef Thomas returned to India in 2011 and helmed the kitchen at Olive Bar and Kitchen, Bandra, Mumbai under the guidance of fellow CIA Alumnus, Chef Manu Chandra. Before taking on the role as the Executive Chef at The Bombay Canteen in 2014, Chef Thomas travelled extensively to the corners of the country to entrench himself in the different elements of Indian home cooking. His food trips have taken him to 18 states in India including Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim and Nagaland. Inspirations from diverse flavours of India, the bounty of the Mumbai markets, and his Grandmother’s kitchen where his passion stemmed from, all reflect in the continually changing menu at The Bombay Canteen.
