Chef Clement had received the award from Dr Suborno Bose, Chief Mentor, IIHM, celebrity Chef Ranveer Brar and Chef Sanjay Kak, the Culinary Director of IIHM. Chef D’Cruz has joined IIHM right away and will have many wonderful and innovative ideas to share with students of the institution that he has gathered through 29 years of work experience around the world. “I am really delighted and excited to have got this opportunity to be able to work with IIHM and to be able to interact with students here.

I cannot remember how many of them I have had working under me in Hyatt Regency and they were all wonderful, hardworking students. IIHM has a truly global curriculum that sets them apart. Students here get a lot of exposure that helps them when they enter the job market. I have seen that IIHM students need a little fine tuning, to fit the hotel’s regulations and norms. Otherwise they are well-trained and ready,”
