After years of global wandering, eating and consuming culture, life and ideas, on more than six continents and in over one hundred countries, Judi Kilachand and Karen Karp, formerly of the Asia Society, have combined their professional experiences and personal passions to create Kilachand + Karp, LLC.

International cultural exchange and the culinary landscape is at the core of this new venture. Inspired by the notion that life should be a constant adventure revolving around food, discovery and sharing, Kilachand + Karp is a business consultancy with a unique point of view. The spotlight is on Asia, a region of the world that offers an unending cornucopia of myriad culinary traditions as well as immense innovation and influence on global trends.

Judi and Karen are the curators of immersive culinary and cultural travel experiences in Asia; project consultants to food-centric business, nonprofit and educational organizations seeking new markets and customers in Asia and the US; and event producers that promote exchange and collaboration among the leaders and innovators in the global culinary landscape.
