He also published several cookbooks in the past year.
The official account of Bombay Canteen shared Cardoz’s death on Instagram:
“Where do we even begin. It seems like we all met a lifetime ago and yet it all seems so very short right now. You have touched our lives and so many more than we can ever count in the deepest of ways. You showed us what it means to live life to the fullest and be the best versions of ourselves all the time. You believed in the vision and in us more than we ever did and pushed us to be confident and proud in whatever we do, but also to be humble when we take a misstep. But most importantly to wear a smile while doing it all. We know you would’ve taught us so much more in the miles we had remaining together.
The outpour of love and wishes we’ve witnessed in the last few hours from across the world just goes to show what an incredible human being you were, and we’re ever so grateful that we were a part of your glorious life. We will miss you in more ways than you can ever imagine.
Love you, chef! Your legacy lives on forever. ❤️“
His death is very significant in New York, especially in the world of Indian Cuisine.
