Habibi’s Chef Amanjeet Singh has a mission. Chef Aman is most well known for his daily appearances on Good Chef Bad Chef, however there is more to his career. Unlike many chefs, Aman hasn’t always dreamed of being behind the pots and pans. In fact, cooking was used to pay for his karate lessons, as he wanted to become a martial artist. However, this dream didn’t last long, as he suddenly found his calling as a chef.
Aman’s heritage includes “a melange of North African, Middle Eastern ,European , Indian, Mediterranean, novelle cuisine”, which has influenced his passion for quality food that’s packed with flavour. Aman discovered a passion for food at the age of 14 on a trip of Durban, South Africa, while going for a party with his group in evening, he found a African guy doing BBQ party in his lawn and Amanjeet observed that guy doing flambe to a beef steak with brandy who’s flame was changing color due to the evaporation of alcohol. Those colors changed his colors of life and he decided to get know about it, He spoke to his father and he got a slap from him and he said in abusing words my son and (bawarchi) cook, not even in dreams, but he stood strong with his dream and goal of life and then began with his illustrious career as an apprentice chef at Chore Bazare Restaurant, Old Delhi, Delhi’s well know restaurant for Kashmiri food. And put his foots in Hyatt Regency hotel from there to holiday inn group from there chef Aman became a part of many new pre-opening restaurants with many new different concepts and food .
