Chef Altaf Hussain
Executive Chef, Yuva Fine Fusion, Royston
Originally from Bangladesh, Chef Altaf Hussain has 17 years' experience as a chef. His success was achieved through hard work and dedication, working his way up through the restaurant kitchen where he was able to develop his talents for creativity and innovation. Almost five years ago he went into partnership to open YUVA Fine Fusion Restaurant on the site of a former pub in Kneesworth, Royston. As a thriving family business YUVA now offers something special to the diners of the area. Serving modern Asian cuisine, the food also draws from regional Indian and Nepalese traditions.
The venue is sophisticated and elegant and the menu too offers something a little out of the ordinary. Biryanis are a speciality, the Classic Collection includes dishes from the north of India, the Punjab, Hyderabadi and Persian cuisine. Vegetarian options are carefully considered - vegetables are delivered fresh daily - a testimony to the overall attention to detail on which the business is based.
Last February 2014, Chef Altaf was jetted out to Ljubljana, capital of Slovenia, after being selected from hundreds of chefs across the UK, to showcase his special talents at the 5-day Taste of Britain Curry Festival organised Curry Life Magazine.
Chef Altaf's signature dishes include Garlic Chilli Chicken and his Jenju Chicken (chicken cooked in tamarind, crushed green chilli paste and pickles) was much in demand at the Taste of Britain Curry Festival. After successfully completing ambitious task of winning the hearts and minds of gourmets of Ljubljana, Chef Altaf was presented with special certificate for his achievements by Mr James Hilton, who is currently the Charge d'Affaires of British Embassy in Slovenia.
But this innovative chef is not content to sit back. His secret weapon is his love and enjoyment of his work: "I feel proud to be a chef, and I believe it is important to continuously work to find new and better ways of creating dishes to please my customers," he says.
