About
Enjoy a private and authentic home-cooked meal with your host Yakuta in her home. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Food has always been a central part of Yakuta’s life as she has been blessed with an incredible culinary lineage. A Bhori Muslim with ancestral roots that trace back to Yemen, she grew up with her cousins and relatives in a cottage in Agripada, the heart of the Muslim area of Mumbai. At the age of 13 she moved to the suburbs with her Bohri mother and Maharashtrian Hindu father. 13 years later she married a Parsi, so she now her cooking is an eclectic mix of Bohri Muslim, Maharashtrian and Parsi traditions. Her passion and love for food guided her to switch professions and start a catering business called Cold Food Company which specializes in dishes that are best enjoyed cold or at room temperature. Yakuta believes that every meal has a story to tell and she looks forward to sharing hers with guests.

What to expect
  • This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Yakuta will prepare a typical Bohri Muslim meal which includes a refreshing kokum sherbet drink (traditional Indian summer cooler great for curing acidity) followed by staple celebratory meal called khuddal palidoo or dal chaval palidoo (lentil rice served with a curry) served with bengan bhartha (roasted eggplant, mashed and cooked with spices) and chana bateta (chickpeas and potato in tamarind sauce) followed by a traditional Bohri dessert called thuli made of sweetened cracked wheat. Yakuta can also offer a typical Parsi meal of mutton sham aak or masonry ma gosh (mutton curry and rice) or saace ni machi (fish cooked in a tangy white sauce). If you are looking for a Maharashtrian meal with a twist then Yakuta is the one! Try her teesrya, shellfish cooked in fresh coconut with greens and pickles.
