The Former Executive Chef of the Michelin-Starred Benares Restaurant Sameer Taneja, Hosts the ‘Classics with a Twist’ Supperclub at The Sun & 13 Cantons, Soho , London W1F 9NG

Saturday 23rd January 2016



Sameer Taneja, until recently the Executive Chef of the Michelin-starred restaurant Benares, in Mayfair, will be hosting a supperclub at The Sun & 13 Cantons, Soho, on Saturday 23rd January 2016.

Taneja – ‘the Epicurean Chef’ - is one of the most talented and idiosyncratic Indian chefs of his generation, mastering finely crafted, technically astute, Michelin-level Indian cooking matched by superior British ingredients. Currently, he’s developing his first restaurant project with former food and hospitality journalist-turned-consultant, Humayun Hussain.

The ‘Classics with a Twist’ supperclub lunch menu takes some of the best known dishes from the Indian repertoire and turns them into a uniquely uplifting and innovative gastronomic experience. Diners are in for a palate tingling adventure!

Reflecting his highly informed culinary knowledge, Taneja’s supperclub follows in the footsteps of a career which extends far beyond Indian cooking. Born in Delhi, he initially honed his skills in the kitchens of India’s famed Oberoi Rajvilas hotel in Jaipur, before arriving in the UK to work alongside Chef Pascal Proyart at London’s One-O-One restaurant for six years. Taneja then moved on to work for Michel and Alain Roux at the legendary Waterside Inn, before joining Brasserie Joel, and then Koffman’s, subsequently. He was appointed the Executive Chef of Benares in 2012.

Sameer Taneja's cooking and presentation is exquisite. Everything was so comfortable and relaxed - combining the warm welcome, so many thoughtful details and the punchy & delicate flavours of each course. Definitely an experience that kept us happily lingering.
