Felicitations poured in for Adeel Chaudhry on social media. While talking to Forbes, Adeel Chaudhry said: “My mother has always been a good cook and my father loves eating, so it was a winning combination from the start,” he chuckles, while sitting in his restaurant, Junoon, in Lahore. “My mother would prepare lots of rich Pakistani food daily for our family and I think that’s where my taste and appetite for gastronomy developed.”
Adeel was also included in the top five Muslim food connoisseurs in the world in 2019. “Pakistani food doesn’t get the credit it deserves and I want to change that. Our cuisine is not only original, it’s also evolving.
