Food and wine writer from Mumbai, India.
In the last 20 years have eaten at, and written about, most of Mumbai’s restaurants.
Adventurous eater who will try anything once.
Am particularly fond of carpaccio, pork chow mein, foie gras, Frankies, strong coffee, scrambled eggs, bhel puri.
Love craft beers, IPA, Italian Pinot Grigio, Super Tuscans and reds from Puglia, New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs, and Burgundy Chardonnays, smoky Single Malts and most Gins.
Don’t have a sweet tooth, but love kala jamuns, mishti doi and chenna payesh.
Amateur gardener. Grow chillies, tomatoes, bell peppers, basil and curry leaf in my balcony garden.
Good cook. Like simple easy, recipes; but don’t mind getting down and dirty with a complicated recipe once in a while. Also obsessively photograph every restaurant meal.
Have more frying pans, knives and bottles of olive oil than most Indian households.
Often compared to Anton Ego. Occasionally asked if related to Zakir Husain, AR Rahman, Raj Kamal Kha and frequently mistaken for Taufiq Qureshi.
Not a foodie.
