Devwrat A. Jategaonkar

‘Executive chef’ at Radisson resort & spa, Alibaug.

Coming from a small town Akola, Devwrat finished his hotel management diploma 1994 , there were hardly any degree courses available in India from one of the reputed hotel management institute from Pune. While studying in college, he came across carvings and started to practise, with guidance and encouragement from teachers and peers, he had already started providing designs for wedding receptions.

Later on over the years he participated in number of competitions and events and his nac of carving innovative designs was an USP. He also started experimenting with butter sculpture and has gained recognition for it.

While working on his carving skills,He worked with the most famous British Ocean liner 'Queen Elizabeth 2' and Specialised his skills in Garde manger, continental, Italian, and Indian cuisines, Fine Dining, and Quantity cooking. Today he is an Award- winning culinary professional with 15 years of experience in the hospitality industry. He has a unique blend of creative flair and passion for food, strong business sense and engaging interpersonal skills. This has led him to do that extra mile along with his main area of work. He organises culinary workshops, events and demonstration on a variety of topics and feels sky is the limit.

Working tirelessly for 2 months, Chef Devwrat created a 3 ft x3 ftx3ft margarine (butter) sculpture. Carrying this huge yet delicate butter sculpture in one piece, all the way from Alibag to Germany was a challenge in itself. He, however, was richly awarded with a silver medal in the 'culinary artistry' category for his butter sculpture 'Oh Cinderella'. In this sculpture, a crucial moment from the fairy tale is frozen. Cinderella, a poor girl is turned into a princess by a kind angel. The magic was to last till midnight. The clock starts tolling midnight hour, Cinderella runs out of the ballroom, prince running behind, her shoe slips. Alas! No time to get back.
