Introduction

Kalyan Karmakar began blogging in 2007 when his wife, who was tired of listening to him talk about food all the time, opened a blog for him. 


His blog, which she named www.finelychopped.net, has grown to be considered as one of India's leading food blogs. It has won the FBAI awards consistently every year since the awards were introduced in 2013: Best food and travel: 2013, 2015 and runners up 2014. Best food blog: 2014

Kalyan had started his career as a market researcher and is now also a food blogger, columnist and consultant who has written for publications such as Femina, Mumbai Mirror & MW Magazine and sites such as Eazydiner. and has been the Editor at Large for the India Food Network and is the Foodie Hub (a global network of food experts) rep in Mumbai and a jury member of their global awards. He has been invited to share the Indian food story in international food summits such as Host Milano, Casa Asia and Madrid Fusion.

He two YouTube channels: Kalyan Karmakar and The Finely Chopped. He conducts personalised food walks in Mumbai where he introduces the city to participants through the dishes of his favourite food haunts.

To unwind he heads to his kitchen where he loves to play with ingredients and his mantra is hassle-free, gut feel-based cooking.

Kalyan is a Bengali who now lives in Mumbai with his wife, who is a Parsi from Mumbai. He moved in here a decade and a half back from Kolkata after spending his early years in Iran and the UK.

When asked what she feels about her introducing him to blogging, Kalyan’s wife Kainaz says "I have forgotten the taste of hot food thanks to his photographing everything on the table before we can eat it". 

Kalyan is on twitter as @finelychopped and on instagram as @thefinelychopped

According to a 2016 report published by Indian Cuisine RR, Kalyan has also been rated as 'top Indian food influencer on Twitter'
