Sous Chef Rahul Prasad loves his work with food; his passion to create a storm is just unbelievable.

He has been part of the Lomani Island Resort culinary team for the past six years. Mr Prasad has been working in the tourism hospitality industry where precision and demand for great cuisines is mandatory.

He said he is in good hands under Resort head chef, Pranesh Goundar, who has vast experience in the industry.

“I was tempted to join this field by the suggestion from my big brother, Kunal Prasad (Sous Chef at Mana Island Resort) and I just took it lightly but did not dream to materialise like this,” he said.

He said there were many challenges in the beginning but “once you know the trade it is easy to overcome.”
