About the host

Varud Gupta was born and bred for business until a brusque millennial existential crisis sent him traveling through the culinary cultures of the world. His first book, Bhagwaan Ke Pakwaan or Food of The Gods, is an exploration of the intersection of food and faith in India and won a Gourmand award for "Peace" and "First Cookbook". 

When not writing or traveling, he's usually eating, collecting instant noodles, teaching storytelling, or playing Dungeons and Dragons.
