Murali Rangachari Executive Chef Minter Ellison

Murali Rangachari

Murali Rangachari is a certified chef and a passionate cook for the past 25 years gaining experience in many kitchens around the world. He is currently responsible for the professionalism and innovative cuisine at one of Australia’s top legal firms – Minter Ellison.

His dishes reflect the passion for traditional Indian cuisine, cooked with modern interpretation and techniques, greatly influenced by Australian multiculturalism. He has worked his way through the ranks of many fine dining establishments around the world learning the intricacies of his craft and developed a healthy respect for fresh, local produce.

“Good food shouldn’t be boring and repetitive” Murali implores, “It should have a twist – it’s important to be contemporary at the same time”. It’s a mantra he has always repeated to his guest – it’s ok to change the recipes.

Outside of work Murali and his family trawl through local produce markets searching for that elusive
ingredient that can be turned into exciting new dishes and along the way they enjoy experiencing local Canberra and regional wineries – trying the many varieties of grape products along with the wonderful cuisine.
