Welcome to the World of Geogy Chacko - Getting to Know Geogy
Geogy Chacko is the owner and chef of FAR-EATS, a fine-dining Indian restaurant with a difference. Gone are the familiar names of Indian dishes; gone also are predictable wines. Instead you will find Geogy inspired marinades, ingredients, and sauces paired with an exciting list of carefully selected wines with over 50% from Washington State. His wide field of experience enables him to masterfully blend the flavors and techniques of his native India with the fresh and sustainable ingredients found here in the Northwest.
He began his culinary adventures at the Institute of Hotel Management and Catering Technology in Bombay for three and a half years, the Indian equivalent to the Culinary Institute of America. His Northwest experience was gained overtime as lead cook in the Four Seasons Olympic Georgian Room with Ludger Szmania, the Seattle Sheraton with Kathy Casey, and as sous chef at Chandler’s Crab House. Geogy was one of the first to open Indian restaurants in the Seattle area in the early-80s, and was an integral part of the team that created Beba’s Deli Markets, and the mini-chain of Chutneys.
His current venture, the Global Food Garden at 5th and Bell, is filled with exciting counters offering everything from breakfast, quick-serve lunches and copious snacking options from all corners of the world. It is also the location of his delicious new flagship restaurant FAR-EATS.
