About Rumah Kitchen
In Bahasa Indonesian, “Rumah” means Home. This name celebrates not only the flavors and foods of Ria’s culture but also the experience she wants to share with everyone who tastes her cooking.
For Ria, home-cooked meals combine simple ingredients with exciting flavors to nourish the body and spirit. Ria has been honing her skills cooking in community for Soul Fire Farm in Grafton, New York.
Rumah Kitchen offers farm-to-table cuisine that connects the bounty of the earth with the joy of sharing a delicious meal.
About Chef Ria
Rumah Kitchen was founded by Ria Ibrahim of south Sulawesi, Indonesia. Ria grew up cooking with her Mom and Grandmother. Ria learned all about farm-to-table cooking while helping out with her family’s catering business and farm. She is excited to bring international knowledge and flavors to the Northeastern United States.
After graduating from high school, Ria decided to attend university in the city of Makassar, Indonesia, and work as a journalist for a food magazine. During that time she met a lot of chefs and broadened her understanding and passion for cooking, which led her to attend culinary school.
Ria now lives in upstate New York, where she is pursuing her dream of running her own company. Rumah Kitchen reflects exactly what cooking means for her - Home.
