Thomas Zacharias

Chef, India

Thomas Zacharias is a chef with nearly 15 years of professional cooking experience having worked at Le Bernardin, New York City’s famed three Michelin star eatery, and more recently the kitchen at The Bombay Canteen as Chef Partner where he found inventive ways to showcase indigenous ingredients through contemporary regional Indian cuisine. In 2022, Thomas decided to bring together some of his passions—storytelling, working with local produce, and nurturing connections between people within the Indian food system—and founded The Locavore to do good through what he knows best: food.
