Ravi Kapur

With culinary roots hailing back to a pizza joint in Waco, Texas, Ravi Kapur keeps the pretention in check as head chef of San Francisco darling, Prospect. Kapur is a back-to-the-basics kind of dude who believes in good ingredients and careful cooking. We hang with this ingredient aficionado as he shows us what 30-year-old imported ginseng and perfectly cooked cheeseburgers have in common, and gives some serious love to San Francisco’s holy trinity of grower – farmer – chef networks.
