About Maneet Chuahan
Maneet's “journey” started in her homeland of India, where she graduated at the top of her class at the WelcomGroup Graduate School of Hotel Administration, India’s top culinary and hotel management school. After interning at India’s finest hotels and kitchens, including names like the Taj Group, Oberoi Hotels and Le Meridian, it was off to the US where she attended The Culinary Institute of America and graduated with high honors sweeping all awards in her class.
After some valuable fine dining field experience on the East Coast, it was time to conquer Chicago and this task started by being the only woman to go up against 40 male chefs for an Executive Chef position. Once again successful, Chef Chauhan was ultimately the opening chef of Vermilion restaurant. As executive chef of Vermilion, she was at the helm of executing the Indian-Latin cuisine developed by Rohini Dey and her kitchen teams in NY & Chicago. With Chef Chauhan at the helm, the restaurant earned many accolades, including Chicago Magazine’s Best New Restaurant, Esquire’s Restaurant of the Month and Wine Enthusiast’s Best New Restaurant in the U.S. Vermilion then set its sights on New York City and launched an equally impressive outpost in the heart of Manhattan. Soon after opening its doors, Chef Chauhan was nominated as the ‘Best Import to New York’ by Time Out Magazine.
After being the only Indian female ever to compete on Iron Chef and a fierce competitor on The Next Iron Chef, Chef Chauhan is now a full-time judge on the Food Network hit show, Chopped which has been nominated for a Critic’s Choice Award and granted Chef Chauhan the honor of receiving the prestigious James Beard Award of Excellence.
Along with Chopped, Chef Chauhan has established herself as a go to figure when it comes to Indian cuisine and spices, as evidenced by being invited to teach the multi-national audience of ABC’s The VIEW how to cook Indian food. Additionally, Chef Chauhan was chosen as the only chef to cook at the first ever Indiaspora Inaugural Ball, honoring the re-election of President Barack Obama.
Currently in the process of opening a restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee, planning a book signing bus tour for her new book across the country, developing a signature spice line and hard at work on another new cookbook, her ongoing research, trials, travels and zest for experimentation keeps her at the forefront of cutting-edge cuisine.
