At a time when eating out is a weekend ritual for almost every city dweller, these home chefs offering regional food are like a welcome change. When we say regional, it is as diverse as it can get. Parsi, Bohri, Assamese, Bihari, Bengali, Malayali and even Khasi food are some of the cuisines that are taking Mumbai by storm.
‘The Home Chef’ on #AddaWithKalyan saw home chefs, who have been organising pop-ups and serving home food that are rarely available. Hosted by India Food Network’s Editor-at-Large Kalyan Karmakar, it had ‘Bawi Bride’ Perzen Patel, Gitika Saikia of Axomiya Pakghor, Sneha Nair of Poppaddum and Munaf and Nafisa Kapadia of The Bohri Kitchen.
Be it Gitika’s excitement to bring exotic tribal food from Assam to Mumbai, Perzen’s decision to quit her job to set up the ‘Bawi Bride’ kitchen or Munaf and Nafisa Kapadia’s enthusiasm to host Bohri pop-ups at their swanky Colaba apartment, these home chefs are here to stay.
