He spoke about his journey to becoming a MasterChef India Season 7 winner and how the different cuisines of the Northeast region wowed the judges and audiences alike. He also highlighted the importance of showcasing the diversity of Northeast cuisine to the rest of the country.
“Winning the MasterChef India Season 7 was a dream come true, and I am grateful to have received such tremendous support from my friends and family.

I did not anticipate the judges enjoying my food, nor did I expect to progress so far in the competition. Despite striving to improve, I battled with persistent self-doubt. Over time that self-doubt transformed into self-assurance. As someone who is typically reserved and introverted, developing that confidence was a personal triumph. I had the opportunity to meet numerous individuals and acquired invaluable knowledge from them.”
The felicitation ceremony was attended by the team at Radission Blu, food enthusiasts, and media personnel. The event concluded with Nayanjyoti Saikia thanking Radisson Blu Guwahati for hosting him and expressing his desire to collaborate with the hotel in the future to showcase the region’s cuisine to a global audience.
The celebration of Nayanjyoti Saikia’s victory by Radisson Blu Guwahati highlights the importance of promoting regional cuisine and the significant impact that culinary expertise can have on promoting a region’s cultural identity.
