As the founder, Rocky spearheads and oversees the brand’s strategy and growth plans.An alumnus of Hindu College (DU), Rocky’s tryst with food began in 1997 when he wrote his first cookbook ‘The Art of Indian Cuisine’. In 2000, he followed it up by starting ZilaKebabpur, a chain of eateries aimed at revivingheritage Indian cuisine, in a quick service format. The ardent foodie then established the Delhi Gourmet Club, followed by Mumbai and Bangalore through which he curates exclusive dinners which are the talk of town. Rocky then launched a Gourmet Passport booklet, which won many followers over three editions. It was the success garnered by the booklet that motivated Rocky to take thisnovel approach onto a digitalmedium with the Gourmet Passport app.
