Welcome to Villages Chef , A food blog sharing authentic food Recipes.

I am Village Chef Chiranjib, living in a small village in the Sundarbans of West Bengal, India.I love to cook Coming from a traditional Indian family, I learned to cook good Indian food from my mother and the cooking experts in our extended family.

Joined Kolkata Airport Travel Food Service Company for many days to learn Indian cuisine and various foreign cuisines to gain cooking experience. Through this blogging, I am trying to present to the readers the traditional cuisines of different villages of India that are being lost, I hope the readers will like these cuisines.

MY Village Sundarbans :

Sundarbans is a mangrove area in the delta formed by the confluence of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna Rivers in the Bay of Bengal. Sundarban Reserve Forest of Bangladesh is the largest mangrove forest in the world. It spans the area from the Baleswar River in Bangladesh’s division of Khulna to the Hooghly River in India’s state of West Bengal. Sundarbans mangrove forest covers an area of about 10,000 km.

A total of 245 genera and 334 plant species were recorded by David Prain in 1903. The Sundarbans flora is characterised by the abundance of sundari (Heritiera fomes), gewa, (Excoecaria agallocha), goran (Ceriops decandra) and keora (Sonneratia apetala) all of which occur prominently throughout the area.

More About The Blog :

I started villageschef.com January  2024 to keep a online journal of my family recipes and the ones which I had developed back then along with the recipes I was trained in.

It was on the insistence of my Wife Madhuri that I started maintaining this online journal. Of course I had no idea back then that my blog would grow so much and become India’s most popular vegetarian food blog.


I have been sharing global recipes right from day one when I started with the blog. But we felt that since I was trained professionally in cooking, baking, confectionary and having experience of International as well as Indian cuisine, it was time to showcase that on the blog.
