Master Chef Contestant Suzy Singh on Being An Asian-American Female Chef


First published on Village Voice

Suzy Singh has an unlikely culinary background. The Punjabi-Sikh chef was a neural engineer before she traded her lab coat for a chef’s apron and enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu, Chicago. Before she completed her studies, Fox TV’s Master Chef picked her up for its second season.

Shortly after the national exposure, Singh opened up her own food truck in Chicago, Suzy’s Samosas, and today she is a culinary consultant and director for five restaurants including Shikara and Sagar, both in Chicago. We spoke to Singh about being a minority in the culinary world and where she gets her inspiration for her Indian-French fusion dishes, like those samosas with pear chutney.
