About the Speakers
Chef and Owner, Radish Hospitality, @pandoodle
Radhika Khandelwal moved to Melbourne, Australia at the age of 17 to pursue a degree in Psychology. She began working at a fine dining restaurant to support herself, and sparked a passion for cooking. When she returned to India in 2013, she founded Radish Hospitality, an umbrella company for her restaurants Ivy and Bean (founded 2013) and Fig and Maple (founded 2016). Fig and Maple was founded as a canvas to showcase the vast indigenous biodiversity of India by using local, seasonal, and lesser known ingredients. The arrival of Fig and Maple in Delhi marked the beginning of a new movement in sustainability and was quickly adopted across the city by numerous chefs.
As an advocate of sustainability and a member of the Chef’s Manifesto working to fulfil the objectives of SDG2 (Zero Hunger), Khandelwal launched a 45-day long campaign titled “Be a #ZeroWasteHero”. This campaign raised awareness of issues such as hunger, biodiversity, climate change, and food waste. Radhika – as a Chef and as a food security activist – has spoken and represented India at the the World Economic Forum and the 75th UN General Assembly and has been featured in eminent publications like Salty Magazine, Vogue India, Condé Nast Traveller, The Economic Times, GQ India, The New York Times, Verve, The Hindu, Lifestyle Asia, Indian Express, and many more.
Regional Corporate Chef, Electrolux Professional
Daniel realized his passion for cooking at a very young age while cooking with his mother and grandparents in his home country Germany. After starting his culinary apprenticeship with 15 years, his passion for food only grew stronger over time. After finishing his apprenticeship in Germany, Daniel moved to Switzerland and cooked in different small restaurants to gain a deeper understanding of the culinary world. After working with the Marriott Group for some years in Zurich, Daniel decided to take a leap of faith and moved to Singapore.
Here, the exposure to many unfamiliar spices and ingredients made cooking for Daniel even more interesting; as the saying goes, “as a chef, you never stop learning”. After working in Singapore in different locations within the same group, Daniel decided to move into the corporate world and started to work for Electrolux Professional. Here, another passion began to develop “sharing his knowledge with other chefs around the world”. Daniel is teaching and training chefs in South East Asia & India on how to use Electrolux Professional’s Kitchen Equipment to its fullest potential and increase their revenue at the same time.
Daniel has led workshops and training that focus on lowering food waste in professional kitchens utilizing modern equipment such as Cook&Chill and Sous Vide technologies for a long time. Lately, Daniel has put more time and effort into “Zero Waste all Taste”, a concept developed by the Electrolux Professional Chef’s Academy that aims to foster a Zero Waste Culture in professional kitchens.
Daniel wants to ensure that current and next generations of chefs handle food with respect and act sustainably.
