About us

Hi there! Nice to meet you!

 

We are Kris and Megha, and we are the couple behind Couple of Chefz

 

In the end of August 2020, Couple of Chefz started as a weekend hobby for two people who love food. At first, our blogging experience started with the simple idea to share our love for food with others. Little did we know what a journey it will be!

 

While our culinary skills are self-taught, we are passionate about experimenting with new flavours, creating unique dishes, food photography, and home cooking. Our goal is that you enjoy our recipes as much as we enjoy making them. As we believe – food equals happiness.

How did we meet?

At the time we first met, we were both international graduate students studying in Turku, Finland. Our first student apartments were quite tiny – only 18 square meters, including a small kitchenette. Having a small space to work with never stopped Kris from experimenting in the kitchen. I still remember how impressed I was when he used to invite me over for three course meal dinners. I mean, how can you prepare so much food in a kitchen that is roughly 3 square meters big?! Till this date, I’m not sure which I fell for first – Kris or his cooking skills!

How did we become bloggers?

Our friendship blossomed as we started to travel and explore Finland together. As traveling took a backseat during the pandemic, we realized we were spending more and more time in the kitchen! We started this food blog by initially taking pictures of the food we were eating and sharing it with family and friends. Soon that expanded to writing recipes and sharing the links with our closest friends. Before we knew it, we were spending all our free time in the kitchen developing recipes and learning about food photography. With this blog we strive to promote a healthy lifestyle through wholesome food, and we’re happy to have you as our companion in this journey!

Fun facts about us

One of us is messy in the kitchen while the other is extremely tidy, so we balance each other out.

Megha is on a mission to make sure Kris falls in love with spicy food. The mission is going well, but the real test is surviving Asian street food.

 

We can’t wait to travel the world! But because of the pandemic, we’ve only made it to 3 countries together so far (Poland, Latvia, Lithuania). 

We love amusement parks but we’re starting to get too old for them. But enjoy it while it lasts, am I right? 

Before dating, Kris was confident Megha can’t cook. He was wrong, she just can’t clean. 

We both want a golden retriever someday, but then again who doesn’t?
