Fortnum's Hungry Minds


Ravinder Bhogal

Season 2, Ep. 3

Fanny Cradock was the inspiration for many new chefs across Britain in her day. But it was a competition to find a modern-day equivalent that saw our latest guest rise to prominence when she won that very title on Gordon Ramsey’s F Word in 2007.

Today, Ravinder Bhogal is an award-winning chef, restaurateur, TV presenter and writer; beloved for her inventive mixed-heritage cooking that celebrates the beautiful similarities and intricate differences between cultures.

With our host Felicity Blunt, she shares her experience of arriving in the UK from Kenya as a seven-year-old, her desire to nurture and nourish people with her food, and discusses the inspiration for her bananas-sounding banana ketchup which we thoroughly recommend you try for yourself asap.
