Head Chef Ashwin Kannan

Ashwin Kannan is the head chef at Sifted’s Atlanta kitchen. He leads a talented team of cooks and is responsible for developing some really unique and flavorful menus. Ashwin has worked as head chef at prestigious locations all across Atlanta. “I have really worked in every area of the food industry from sports bars to fine dining,” says Chef Ashwin.

Born in Bombay, India, Ashwin and his family came to the United States in 1988 and made Atlanta their home. Always a hard worker, Ashwin said that he got his first job at 15 and has kept working ever since.

Notably, Ashwin held a position at one of the world's largest food companies, where at only 24 years old he became the youngest chef manager in the entire company. “I really came into my own. It was a great experience and I learned a lot about corporate culture and about customer service in the corporate world,” Ashwin said. Finally, in summer 2018, Ashwin found his way to Sifted which he says is the most rewarding job he’s ever had.

“Sifted has a really high standard of what they want to serve people - without cutting corners or costs. He explained that as a chef, you want to be able to put your name on everything you create.
