Ruta spent the first half of her life criss-crossing the Indian sub-continent, exploring the stunning variety of regional Indian food.
Moving to the San Francisco Bay Area, she ran a popular cooking school, made multiple appearances on TV as a guest chef, and worked as a food consultant with companies like Pepsico and Lea & Perrins - all the while putting her own modern touch on this ancient cuisine.
Ruta has led several successful Culinary Tours of India. She divides her time between the San Francisco Bay Area and the coastal state of Goa, India, where she is setting up an organic farm and opening a new restaurant this Fall.
