What is the story behind your blog’s name?
Not exactly a story, as the name says, it’s all about Jodhpur’s food. I wanted to keep the name simple and connecting to my audience so simply named it Jodhpur Foodie.
Why did you decide/inspired to start a food blog?
I was always a big time Foodie and going through metro city blogs, I always wondered why there is no such blog for jodhpur? I was always keen towards food photography and used to put a lot of food pictures on my personal profile. Jodhpur has one of the richest food culture of country and still no Instagram presence. So two year back on a winter night of November I just chose some best pictures of best eateries from my phone’s gallery, wrote some good descriptions and it started getting popular overnight, as if people were just waiting for a food blog in the city.
Which part of blogging excites you most: the recipe development, the post writing, or the photography?
It’s a small city, people aren’t that much techno friendly but I feel great now a days when I hear people talking on nearby tables in restaurants like “let’s check on Jodhpur Foodie’s review on this dish and then we will order”. What excites me most is the content, I feel that description of food should be interesting, connective and not so long that people refuse to read at sight. I always get a lot of appreciation for the blog.
What are the three most popular posts ever on your blog?
1- When Dominos opened its branch in the city, we were among the first ones to get a pizza delivered at our place and when we put down a post, people were surprised, as apparently they were not knowing about its arrival in Jodhpur and there was a flood of questions asking for the location.
2- The Indian cheese cake picture by a newly opened restaurant chain.
3- A simple Pulav picture from the most popular food stall of town which is favourite spot of students.
Jodhpurfoodie is the leading Instagram food blog of Rajasthan’s cultural capital, Jodhpur. Geenius Jain’s was the first in Jodhpur for food blogging and loved a lot for his posts, captions and activities. He is a businessman by profession but food blogging is for his inner satisfaction. The idea of Jodhpur Foodie was his but after some months he made a good team. In this blog, photographs are taken by Genius Jain himself and his friend Sahil Garg, who is a baker and food stylist, running his own instagram handle @thefatlens. Content writing is done by their friend Trisha Kalla, who is a CA and has a great command over English vocabulary. So he can say they are a team of three. He has captured and tried to present the beautiful food culture of Jodhpur’s food in a best possible way. He has attached the most popular pictures of most popular eateries out here. Every picture has a story and that can be found on their blog.
