Know your Chef
“It all started from my family back in India” recalls Chef Pradeep Jagtap while he gets ready to set up his lines at 9 am in the morning. Though having a staff of nearly 5 to 6 people working everyday, he is the first one to enter the restaurant and the last one to leave. The journey has spanned across 40 years but the drive to cook the ever evolving and delightful Indian cuisine has never faded.
I was born in a family of Chefs. Cooking comes naturally to me. India House is my way of keeping the tradition alive.” explains Chef when asked about his inspiration behind pursuing the profession.
The experience bridges across 3 different continent. He first started cooking professionally in India and moved to Nairobi in early 90’s and then eventually to Canada. After working in restaurants for few years, he decided to pursue his dream of opening his own venture in the name of ‘Trimurti Indian Cuisine’. Trimurti served the people of Toronto for a good span of 15 years.
The restaurant was a big hit thanks to the home-style Indian food and the hospitality of the serving staff. The will to move out of the hustle and bustle of Toronto brought the Jagtap family to London, Ontario in the year 2015. Since then ‘India House’ is proudly serving its happy and satisfied customers and will do so for years to come.

Unarguably one of the most ancient cuisines in the world, Indian cuisine is continuously evolving since 5000 years. The diversity of Indian culture has its influence on the food as well. Ancient India itself was famous for its vegetarian delicacies for a long time. With time the migrants brought in their own food habits and the food culture evolved. One such major influence came from the Mughals who arrived in the 12th century. Introduction of tandoor along with different types of kormas (curries), koftas (meatballs), and biryanis are few of the gifts of the Mughal sultanate. The perfect blend of carefully roasted spices is an important piece of art in Indian Cuisine and very few are masters of it.
India’s cultural and geographical diversity is responsible for its changing landscape of local cuisines as you go in every direction. May it be the spicy curries of northern India or the traditional idli-sambar of the south, the food will send you into a blend of happiness and satisfaction right from the first bite. Though the names might be the same, the cooking methods are unique to every state. The major credit of this diversity goes to the millions of Indian moms who are artistic and talented chefs in themselves. As they will fondly say ‘The road to someone’s heart passes via their stomach’.
