Relive the moment when Chef Suresh Pillai makes the Malayali community proud by giving the humble Meen Curry a complete makeover on ‘Masterchef: The Professionals’ show in 2017.
Chef Suresh Pillai, from Kollam, went on to create history when he became one of the very few Indians to participate in the globally acclaimed TV show— ‘Masterchef: The Professionals’. Suresh Pillai is as passionate and proud about his humble roots as much the culinary journey, spanning over decades, that eventually catapulted him to the pinnacle of fame when he cooked Kerala’s very own ‘Meen Curry’ on the Masterchef show. Not only did Suresh win the hearts of Malayalis across the globe but also the novel presentation of the traditional South Indian dish piqued the interest of a global audience. Suresh’s culinary talent coupled with love for authentic simplicity of dishes and subtle flavours had taken him from his hometown in Kollam to working in some of the most renowned kitchens across the globe before returning to Kerala to fondly don the cap of Corporate Head and Exec Chef at The Raviz Ashtamudi Resort with the vision of promoting Kerala cuisine across the globe.
