At the tender age of 29 Chef Alfred Prasad was awarded the prestigious Michelin Star for the original Tamarind in London. He was the youngest Indian chef to earn that distinction. He started at Tamarind in 2001 and was elevated to executive chef the following year. The first branch outside of London was opened about a year ago in Newport Coast at the Crystal Cove Promenade. It’s an elegant space with an open kitchen. Chef Alfred supervises both locations.
Chef Alfred discussed the components of one of his favorite dishes, Butter Chicken. It’s chicken thigh tikka in pureed fresh tomatoes flavored with ginger, honey and fenugreek leaves. It’s a very involved preparation.
