The Artistic Foodies Podcast

The Artistic Foodies is a podcast that unites two forms of expression: artistry, and food. Based in the SF Bay Area, co-hosts Abbas Mohamed and Irfan Rydhan, present conversations to an audience with interests much like their own, people who enjoy global diverse culinary experiences, as well as enjoying and learning about the impact of food and art. Whether we are talking to artists about food, with chefs about art, or with each other about both, you are sure to leave every episode having learned something new.

Abbas loves poetry, Sufi inspired music and cooking  while Irfan is a Hip-Hop junkie who enjoys watching TV and Film as well as rooting for his local sports teams in the Bay! Yet they also have much in common. They are both Halal food gourmands, and love sharing their experiences with friends and family!

We will hope you will join us, as an artistic foodie yourself as we discuss food, family, culture, religion, art, music and everything in between!
