He's become corporate chef for One World Cuisine, the group behind Mantra, Diva, Mela, and more, including the new Dosa Factory inside Shalimar in Central Square. He'll be overseeing recipe development for the properties, among other things.

Also new(ish): a naan bar at Mantra (rings a bell) and a new executive chef, Jerry Pabla.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
