Head Chef, Manish originally grew up in Mumbai, India and states that he used to cook at home from an early age. He was excited that it could become a career stating that he always wanted to be a pastry chef; “I’ve enjoyed working in a café environment, and I love A la Carte style cooking… Food is something you learn about every day- it’s so vast that you can always keep learning.”
One of his highlights include becoming a Head Chef at 24 years of age at the café in Rotorua. Six years later in the hospitality industry, and Manish feels that working at Jet Park Hotel is great as he can learn something new from all the chefs; “We are a very multicultural team, so all have different ideas we can bounce off each other.”
When not at work, Manish enjoys being creative and doing D.I.Y. projects, such as making a $15 tall boy look ‘as new’. And given the choice of holiday destination- “I love Barcelona, and would love to visit- the name sounds so posh.”
