About Ragini Dey

Ragini Dey was born in the city of Mirzapur, Northern India. Her family travelled extensively through India experiencing food from many different regions and experimenting with different recipes. Ragini says her family was quite unconventional because they loved to try new and different foods unlike many Indian families who cooked only the food of their region. Ragini graduated in political science in Delhi before moving to Mumbai to work in a catering school. She emigrated to Australia after her husband accepted a job with the Hilton Hotel in Adelaide. After several years teaching and cooking Indian food for establishments such as South Australia's Government House and dignatories including Donald Bradman, she eventually opened Indian takeaway The Spice Kitchen. It was such a success that it expanded to include Indian cooking and spice-appreciation classes and became renowned for making everything from scratch, right down to the pickles, chutneys and spice mixes. Ragini Dey is now considered one of Adelaide's finest chefs and her restaurant has received several awards and accolades.show more
