Speaking on the occasion, Abinash said, “The journey from Entry to Master Chef Season 6-9 to winning the title was incredible.” I never expected to be able to reach that far. The hard work, the blessings of my parents and the teacher have given me this success. I had a weakness for eating since childhood. When I went to Hyderabad to get a job after studying, I could not find food at home. There was an absurdity in my mind. There I started cooking Oriya (Odia) (Odia) homemade food. I also read various books on cooking. I participated in various cookie competitions. After six years of hard work, I was able to reach Master Chef Season 6. When Master Chef 7 Season 4-6 got a chance, it was the traditional Oriya (Odia) (Odia) food that was made. I really like mahaprasad of the Mahaprabhu prepared by the temple. Asked if he had ever made avada, sweets, dalma, baser, etc., he said, “I’ve never done a show.” But once Dalma made it at home. Asked what his next goal was after winning the Master Chef 4 title, he said, “My goal is to bring Oriya (Odia) traditional food to the world. I will travel to different parts of the country to show people how to make traditional Oriya (Odia) food. It aims to publish a travel book on Oriya (Odia) traditional food preparation, ”he said.
It is learned that Abinash is the son of Adikanda Nayak and Basanti of Kaialasandhapur village on the outskirts of Asika. After completing his school and higher secondary education, he completed his BTech in Electronics and Telecommunications and worked as a Software Engineer at Infosys in Hyderabad. Despite being an Abinash software engineer , the cooking has become his addiction.
