He has set up restaurants in India (including at a heritage hotel, Alila Fort Bishangarh) and abroad and curated the menu of many more (including cruise kitchens aboard Royal Caribbean).

His popularity on television is matched by his tremendous fan following on social media as well.

Getting the basics right and revering the kitchen as an artist would his/her studio, are mantras he lives by and propagates to others as well.

He also pioneered the first ever Twitter video show called Ranveer On The Road, covering new destinations each season and exploring their cuisines and cultures. For someone who propounds the theory of cuisine being an extension of culture, he strongly upholds the belief of travel making a good chef better.

An avid photographer with a keen eye for details, his love of art flows into his food styling and photographs as well.

With a bestseller in his kitty, a popular host and judge on television and an artist both in and out of the kitchen, chef Brar calls himself a food-sufi on a constant culinary quest.
