Vikram Doctor

Editor, Economic Times

An encyclopedic source on the cooking life of Mumbai, Doctor has spent years tracking down and documenting the things that many other cooks, eaters, readers, and even fellow food writers, routinely take for granted. His column for the Economic Times is the closest thing that most Indian readers have to a chronicle of the changing face of food and food documentation over the last tumultuous decade.


In his writing, and through his much-loved—and temporarily shelved—Real Food Podcast, Doctor casts a wide net over the mayhem of topics that make up modern Indian food and its history, from the provenance and shifting fortunes of the sugar cube to the decidedly mixed ways in which the Green Revolution is received by Indians, depending on their ideological inclinations.
