Mansur Kaiser came to the United States from South Asia in the late 70’s and fell in love with his new country. The freedom and opportunity to be everything he wanted to be, with hard work, helped him transition to his new home quickly, but there was one thing he had a difficult time finding: authentic Indo-Mediterranean cuisine like the food he grew up eating.
With few options outside of his own kitchen, he began to learn how to cook his favorite dishes and became quite the home chef. After he finished school and began working, it became tougher to find time to prepare the intricate dishes he couldn’t live without.
Rather than compromising, he began experimenting and improving how he prepared the cuisine, and soon developed his own methods to simplify the complicated techniques used back home.
