Ravinder is an award winning UK TV chef, food writer and stylist. She became well-known when she was named by Gordon Ramsay as his new Fanny Cradock, on The F Word. She is the author of Cook in Boots and head chef at the monthly pop up dinner at The Dispensary in Aldgate.
In the previous years leading up to her stardom, Ravinder Bhogal was indulging her love of cooking by preparing feasts at home for friends and family. On the side, she was quietly putting together a collection of her own recipes.
She never dreamed these homespun recipes would make it into print. But that was before she was spotted by Gordon Ramsay and catapulted into the public eye with an award-winning cookbook and a string of television appearances.
Bhogal was named the “New Fanny Cradock” on Ramsay’s The F Word and travelled the world for Channel 4’s investigative food show Food: What Goes in your Basket?.
Her debut book Cook in Boots won the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards for the UK’s Best First Cookbook and was awarded the first runners-up prize of the World’s Best First Cookbook at the Paris Cookbook Fair in February 2010. The Gourmand World Cookbook Awards feature around 26,000 books from 136 countries.
BBC programme Desi DNA had its highest viewing figures when Ravinder presented a two-parter entitled “The Great British Curry Trail”. The show followed her travelling across the country to find out how Britain fell in love with Indian food.
Cook in Boots was released in 2009 by Harper Collins.
Ravinda is a big fan of the Noma style of eating – foraging for unusual and local foods.
