Sylva Senat, executive chef at Tashan (777 S. Broad St.), now holds the title Supreme South Asian Chef.
He won a recent series of "culinary battles" sponsored by Caesars Entertainment and DISH designed to raise awareness of South Asian culture. His winning dish was Fish in a Fish Bowl, featuring poha-crusted bass with madras curry and apple, mango and bean chili.

Celebrity chefs Maneet Chauhan (Food Network’s Chopped and Iron Chef America) and Barbie Marshall (Fox's Hell’s Kitchen) were among judges for the final event.

Senat wins bragging rights, DISH’s Hindi Mega Pack subscription, a $500 American Express Reward Card, a spa vacation package at Caesars Atlantic City, and the opportunity to be a guest culinary instructor at the Viking Cooking School in Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City.

Not bad for a Haitian native raised in New York City.

Fish in a Fish Bowl will also be served as a special menu item at Caesars' KWI restaurant and Noodle Bar.
