Elaborating on this revelation, Pankaj Tripathi shares, “Yes, I do cook. I was a professional cook as well for a couple of days at a hotel. It was at a hotel in Patna. I had taken up training from the Food Craft Institute of India. There is a 2-year course of Food Preparation and Production Technology where you learn about food hygiene. It is basically a training to be a chef. Now IHM does it, FCI doesn’t do it anymore. So, I did the course and worked at a hotel in Patna for two years. I used to do night duties there so that in the morning I could do theatre rehearsals.”
