Chef Asharaf did not become a chef by accident, he had the interest from the very beginning, when he was just a 12-year-old boy, he used to prepare and sell lemonades at local community sports events. It was natural for him to take hospitality as his field of study and vocation. Chef Asharaf is currently a resident of this city of dreams Dubai. With over 18 years of culinary experience, spread across India, the UK, and the Middle East, he had the opportunity to work with many renowned brands.
