Apart from Goa’s religious legacy Basilica of Bom Jesus church, Fort Aguada , sandy beaches, sea shacks, and fenny there is another Goan treasure that has preserved the flavours of the Goan legacy. We are talking about celebrity Chef, URBANO DE REGO.
I had this desire to meet with this person during my stay at VIVANTA BY TAJ, NORTH GOA. Although I was impressed by Chef Rego, I was a bit intimidated by him as well because of his larger-than-life presence and wondered how someone with such a towering personality would come across. Fortunately, he surprised me and I was compelled to describe him as humble, down to earth and a man without superciliousness. The Interview encompassed more than just one topic and It brought to the fore his professional and personal life trajectories, as well as the many flavors and experiences that culminated in him being ranked among the best five chefs in the history of the country.
