Born in Kashmir in 1986, Prateek Sadhu grew up in agricultural lands and he would visit his aunt’s farm every Sunday. Naturally curious and always driven, he could be found in the kitchen by his 10 birthday and over the coming years, spent most of his free time there, learning the basics with his mother and aunt.
Charismatic, young and dynamic Chef Prateek Sadhu is an alumnus of the Culinary Institute of America with double gold medals to his credit. He worked in some of the world's finest kitchens, including Alinea, The French Laundry and Le Bernardin, followed by a tour of some of Europe’s Michelin-starred restaurants. But it wasn’t until his tenure under Rene Redzepi at Noma that Prateek really imbibed the learnings of how to cook from the region and harness the soil. This food philosophy changed his life.
A move back to India eventually connected him with Aditi Dugar, co-owner of Masque, where Prateek now helms the kitchen. The pair opened the restaurant in the heart of Mumbai in September 2016, after two years of thorough R&D, traversing India to source the best regional produce from farmers across the country.
In less than a year, Masque has blazed its own trail through India’s culinary landscape, garnering a reputation for constant innovation and numerous accolades along the way. With a successful year under their belt and big plans for the future, Sadhu and Dugar are on a quest to create an experience that will put Masque - and India - on the world’s culinary map.
