Left Parallax Background Element


An extraordinary life of a chef – mapping through three continents, a war, surviving homelessness, and now – giving birth to a cooking show during a global pandemic with his daughter, Diya. It all started with a man who simply wanted to become a chef because of a dinner jacket and a bowtie.

Melbourne Chef Daman Shrivastav, what follows is his life put together with his determination and faith. Digging through the seeds of the society in which he surrendered himself to fate, and Daman comes to know that success can only survive if one knows never to abandon humility.

I would like to recommend Chef Daman Shrivastav for the wonderful community service work that he is providing to the minority groups in our community during the challenging times of this Covid-19 pandemic.
