The guiding vision behind Rasa is Das Sreedharan. Born in Kerala,and never far from food being grown, food getting prepared and food building communities, Das moved to London to study accounting. His infatuation with preparing food and building communities around food soon became his calling.
After starting Rasa, Das Sreedharan started cooperative farms, where food is grown naturally, with no interference whatsoever. In London, Das Sreedharan hosts 'An Evening with Das'- a series of well-received lectures, where he spreads his addictive cheer and inspires his audience to pay attention to how they eat and what they eat. He has been featured on Preschard’s People and No Reservations with Bourdain. Das Sreedharan has hosted superstar chef Jamie Oliver's wedding.
