Born in Kenya, to Indian parents, Ravinder Bhogal’s food is inspired by her mixed heritage and the UK’s diverse immigrant culture. Ravinder is a journalist, chef and restaurateur. Her debut restaurant, Jikoni, was ranked 56th in the UK by the National Restaurant Awards within 7 months of opening and achieved a coveted place in the Michelin Guide in the same year. She has authored two books; her last Jikoni: Proudly Inauthentic Recipes from an Immigrant Kitchen, (Bloomsbury July 2020) won an IACP award for Best Restaurant Cookbook and was been shortlisted for the André Simon Award, and a Fortnum and Mason Award for Best Cookery Book. Her debut book Cook in Boots (HarperCollins, 2009) won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award 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. In June 2020, Ravinder launched a sustainable vegetarian home delivery brand Comfort and Joy, a sister brand to Jikoni last year. Ravinder has frequently appeared on UK and Indian television, and she is a monthly food columnist for the FT Weekend Magazine and Guardian Feast, a contributing editor at Harper’s Bazaar, and regularly writes for The Observer Magazine and Vogue online.
