Chef Jehangir Mehta is the chef/owner of Graffiti, Me and You, and Graffiti Earth and was a Next Iron Chef runner-up. Known for his signature eclectic style, he uses an array of ingredients and spices to create an interesting juxtaposition of temperatures, textures and tastes. The popularity of his distinctive style led to a Zagat food rating of 28 out of 30 for Graffiti in 2015. Mehta is the chef ambassador for the National Foundation of Celiac Awareness and the Mushroom Board, and a council member for Menus of Change, an initiative of the Culinary Institute of America and Harvard T.H.

Fifteen years ago, Mehta was a pioneer in ushering in the idea of children’s cooking with his “Candy Camp” class, and has since launched a national promotion with Whole Foods for inculcating healthy eating in children with the “Kids Food Adventure with Chef Jehangir” initiative. Mehta was the highly acclaimed pastry chef at some of New York City’s finest restaurants including Aix, Union Pacific, Mercer Kitchen, Compass and Jean-Georges, and is the author of Mantra: The Rules of Indulgence (Harper Collins).
