Food is the dominating twin of Rakesh Raghunathan, whose interest lay in distinguishing spices and different types of Rasam, as other 9 year olds played outdoors. Long dinner table discourses to the point of being absurd, revolving around the worthiness of food crafted everyday, set the tone for his adult years. The abiding passion has remained with him, as he has spent the last decade of his life founding a chain of wraps in Chennai, hosting a food and travel show on TV (Dakshin Diaries on Living Foodz (part of Zee Entertainment Ltd)), and co-creating Puliyogare Travels. The subject of variously sarcasm, wit and glory for his level of interest in food, Rakesh wears it proudly on his sleeve, as he goes about discovering new palettes and sensory experiences. Born with a ladle, Rakesh’s mission is to bring to your desks and TVs [and if you’re married to him, your table!], a new food experience, every other day.
When he’s not stirring the pot, or invading your kitchen, Rakesh spends his time helping hotel chains and food brands with developing recipes, training chefs, branding and marketing strategies
Full-time litigating lawyer, and co-creator of Puliyogare Travels, Preeti Mohan is the perfect counterfoil to Rakesh. While Rakesh thrives on energy, creativity and the bigger picture, for Preeti, the devil is really in the detail. Years of combing through legal drafts and strategizing have equipped her to bring the skills of reasoning and precision, to conceptualizing and running Puliyogare Travels. When not trapped by a cerebral perspective, she loves unleashing her creative side through writing. She has written on the arts, culture and social issues for a range of publications, and with Puliyogare travels, marries her love for the pen with that for food and travel!
