Culinary degrees and kitchen experience don’t always lead to chefdom. In this Open Kitchen episode, Chandra Ram, editor of PLATE magazine, shares her journey from her home state of Kentucky to the Culinary Institute of America to life as a working cook and consulting chef to her longstanding role as editor of PLATE magazine. A compeling story of where the cook’s road can take you. (Chandra is also the author of the forthcoming The Complete Indian Instant Pot Cookbook: 130 Traditional and Modern Recipes.)
