Ravinder Bhogal is a British chef, food writer[4][5] and stylist.[6] She rose to fame when she was named by Gordon Ramsay as his new Fanny Cradock, on The F Word.[7][8]

Her debut book Cook in Boots won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for the UK’s Best First Cookbook[9][10] 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.[11] Cook in Boots was released in 2009 by Harper Collins.[12]

BBC program Desi DNA had its highest viewing figures when Ravinder presented a two-parter entitled "The Great British Curry Trail". The show followed her traveling across the country to find out how Britain fell in love with Indian food.[2] She also hosted Ravinder's Kitchen, a culinary TV series that premiered in October 2013 on TLC.[3]

Ravinder's first restaurant, Jikoni, opened in Marylebone's Blandford Street in September 2016.
