I'm Manish Das, the executive chef of Omo Bistro and Skinny Mo's Jazz Club in Kolkata. I have been a chef/restaurateur for a decade now. I am trained in French Gastronomy at the Alain Ducasse Culinary Institute in Manila, Philippines. At Omo Bistro, we specialise in european cuisine from the perspective of French gastronomy, using organic and local ingredients. We pay our tribute of traditions while embracing modern evolution. What drives me to cook, honestly I don't know, that is how naturally it comes to me. But if I have to give it an explanation, the only thing I could say is "Love".
