Dear Readers,

Greetings,

We have completed five years and we are stepping into the sixth year of publishing with well earned satisfaction and confidence largely contributed by the response from all our readers, advertisers, industry’s associations and other stakeholders.

When we began our journey all that we possessed was a strong intention to turn the spotlight on the rarely noticed people who contributed to the fame of restaurants and hotels where food lovers flocked to enjoy healthy and perfectly cooked food. They were the chefs who created delicious recipes that became famous and drew clientele to the restaurant.

In the anniversary Issue we have featured the signature recipes of celebrity and executive chefs. What makes a recipe acquire the tag of a chef's signature is an exotic combination of the culinary art he has cultivated and the sensitive feel that a chef accumulates over a period of time by knowing the taste buds of the regular clients of a restaurant.

The chef's exclusive creation becomes his signature creation and bears his individual stamp. Sometimes it even carries the chef's name as an affix to the name bestowed by the chef or the restaurant management. For example, Franz Sacher's famous cake said to have been his creation for a prince in Vienna, quite simply made of dark chocolate and apricot jam got the name Sacher Torte and has been accorded a prime place in Viennese culinary history.

In the Indian culinary industry there are quite a number of famous chefs who have created their individual signature recipes. Each dish is very special and lovingly created. We at Better Kitchen are proud to offer them to our readers as our anniversary gift.

As Better Kitchen continues its journey we are certain that the food industry will march forward and keep pace with the advances in technology and innovation in different spheres and emerge more successful than in the recent past.

Here's wishing everyone success and safety in every effort and experience.

Happy reading.
