Bluffton, South Carolina

Artist in Residence | Vishwesh Bhatt

Vishwesh Bhatt hosts a week of workshops at Palmetto Bluff

Vishwesh Bhatt was born and raised in Gujarat, India and moved to the United States with his family when he was seventeen. Living in Austin, Texas, Bhatt discovered the many connections between Indian and American cuisines and in 2001 joined James Beard Award-winning chef John Currence’s staff. Bhatt quickly put himself on the map as one of the South’s most talented new chefs, and in 2009 he was named executive chef of Currence’s Snackbar. Combining Southern and subcontinental influences, Bhatt’s unique menus have gained him culinary fame; the chef is a six-time James Beard Award semifinalist and in 2019 he received the highly coveted James Beard Award for Best Chef: South.
