Vineet Bhatia:

“At my restaurant Indego in Dubai, we have to consider the cultural surroundings. There are certain things, for example, like olives which are abundant in the Middle East! So how do you put olives into Indian cuisine? We take olives and add it into a chicken tikka. We do a chutney which is made out of black olives. So when you have an avid diner who comes into your restaurant and he sees the black olive which he likes, and he wants to try that. So you have to learn to respect the local traditions.”
