Meet the Chef

Chef Miheer Shete

With The Chef presents Chef Miheer Shete at Curryish Tavern in trendy Toronto neighbourhood, West Queen West.

This is not a cooking class. This is about savouring the food and experience of a chef-hosted meal!

With The Chef - History and Concept

Originally launched in May 2022, in collaboration with celebrity chef Vikram Vij at his South Surrey restaurant, My Shanti, With The Chef has won rave reviews from guests and garnered an award for its concept as an innovative tourism product. 

Who is Chef Miheer?

Chef Miheer Shete is the creator of Curryish Tavern. He is responsible for some truly bold and flavourful Indian food paired with seasonal Canadian ingredients. He brings Toronto an exciting space where eccentricity of his cuisine can stand out. Every dish is inspired by a story and is a little witty.

We are your exclusive invitation to dine "With The Chef"

It’s one thing for a guest to briefly meet a chef. It’s an entirely different story to get to know what they, and their cuisine, are really all about, with eyes, ears and taste buds all in play.
