Meet The Owner


Founder, Cardamom Kitchen

Welcome to Cardamom Kitchen Tours. I am a trained chef and long-time Chicago resident. I grew up eating my mom’s exquisitely flavored South Indian dishes and traveling to Kerala – India’s spice capital. After culinary school, I founded Cardamom Kitchen to share my knowledge of Indian food and culture with home cooks and food lovers. I would love to show you around two of my favorite neighborhoods – Devon Avenue and Lincoln Square.
