What is the story behind your blog’s name?

The love for my hometown and also for food photography helped me to set and establish my blogging name as Kolkatafoodographer.





Why did you decide/inspired to start a food blog?

This was all over a conference call that we had to step out for into food blogging ad explore the various niches of it.



What’s your blog about? Who reads it? How long have you been blogging?

My blog is from August 2018. So, it’s almost a year old. I have been blogging on Instagram since June and on Facebook since January. I have more than 15.5K followers on Instagram and get a good response from them. Also for my blog, there is an audience from India who likes reading my blog.



What do you think food blogging will look like in 5 years?

This is a highly growing industry in India where hundreds of people start blogging every day, either on their own or by getting influenced. Only the ones, who have all the motivation and the will to explore the culinary world, can survive, rest would succumb to dirty politics and other issues.





Which part of blogging excites you most: the recipe development, the post writing, or the photography?

As my name suggests, photography is the main thing, that interests me the most. Getting shots from those unexplored angles which makes the food look like out of the world, fascinates me.


ABOUT Kolkatafoodographer by Roibat Bhowani


Speaking of blogging, this has always been about exploring the culinary world and finding out the best in the dishes, bringing it in front of the world and even let my audience know, what problems one can end up in, at a particular place. Food blogging for me is perfectly driven by passion. Over the span of 2 years, I have developed myself as a food photographer through constructive criticism and tried to deliver to my client, the best results. I find myself lucky to have met a few renowned chefs and bloggers, whom I wouldn’t have met, otherwise. I have been to 250+ restaurants and cafes in these 2 years and reviewed 150+ places. This isn’t a career option for me but I find my happiness in working in this field, communicating with people and know how things work and at last, giving a feedback about the place to my audience.
