"Barkha and Floyd Cardoz met at hospitality school in India and became close friends. Eight years later, after emigrating separately to New Jersey and New York, they met once again and started to explore romance. Twenty-five years later, they're the owners of the New York restaurant Paowalla, where their Indian heritage is cooked up through Chef Floyd's modern American lens. Journey with us as they share how friendship evolved into love, and the sacrifice of every young cook into the success of one of New York's most beloved chefs.

This marks the fifth and final episode of our Power Couples series. Tune in Monday, February 13th for our Valentine show, when we share insight on marital longevity and favorite takeaways from these time-tested couples."
