If it’s one thing the people of Delhi can agree upon it’s their love for food. Always open to trying out new cuisine and experimenting with flavours, the Capital’s foodies are usually on the look out for new and upcoming restaurants.
The formidable SET’Z restarant located in the Emporio Mall has made a name for itself amongst the best in the business. With seven kitchens going strong, they now have a new feather in their cap—Iranian Cuisine. To helm the new menu the group has brought in Chef Feridoun Sohrabi Shahsavar.
After having been involved in running his family business of five restaurants in Iran since 2014, Feridoun has joined SET’Z. The acclaimed chef states, “The Indian palette is used to very spicy and hot flavours, they are also partial to gravy. I hope they will enjoy Iranian cuisine, which is not spicy but full of flavour. We have a lot of kababs and dip, which is dry and the Biryani is great option, which is very different from the Indian version.”
With more than two decades of a vast and versatile culinary repertoire, Feridoun Sohrabi Shahsavar set foot in the hospitality industry as a chef with the Abshariranian restaurant in Dubai. A master of Iranian cuisine, he brought his homegrown passion for cultivating traditional flavours of Iran, blended with a modern day twist, taking his guests on a culinary joy ride.
Commenting on the appointment of the Chef, Ms. Dinaz Madhukar, Executive Vice President, DLF Luxury Retail and Hospitality said, “DLF has always believed in redefining consumer experiences in retail as well as hospitality. When it comes to international cuisine, SET’Z has always been the go-to restaurant of the capital. We are proud to introduce the Iranian cuisine under the expertise of Feridoun Sohrabi Shahsavar, and hope that our patrons will indulge and enjoy the cuisine as much as they have the seven kitchens.”
Feridoun’s developing passion for food was heightened during his many years of living across the Middle East. He took every passing opportunity to learn as much as he could through culinary classes, interacting with fellow chefs and exploring the many different flavors every city had to offer.
Having worked across leading hotels such as the Shahriyar Hotel (Iran), Hyatt Regency (Dubai), Emirates Palace (Abu Dhabi), and The President’s Palace (Qatar), Feridoun’s immense experiences have enabled him to refine the culinary art and bring his cultural authenticity to the table. Along with the creative aspects, his year-and-a-half stint with the Hatam International Restaurant in Thailand enabled him to supervise operational technicalities such as pre-opening and training of the staff, menu planning, and innovating with old world Iranian ingredients and local flavours.
Iranian delicacies are definitely worth a try and this tops the list as far as authentic cuisine goes, so check it out.
