DRAMA ON YOUR PLATE
Nautanki –Gastronomical Drama
AT NAUTANKI-GASTRON omical Drama, restaurateur Parvez Mohammed, 33, brought in a generous dose of molecular gastronomy in an informal setting with a live chaat trolley that serves bhel with a sorbet of the chutney or the tangy chaat masala turned into a gel. “Gujarat likes to stick to its roots when it comes to food. At the most, Indian food is synonymous with Punjabi but we got the best from India here,” he says. Mohammed brought together delicacies from around India on the menu and created a special selection of molecular gastronomy fare. A highlight here is the nine course meal, a 75 minute-long dining experience that starts with dishes from the North and travels down to the kitchens of the South.
The numerous cook-outs and workshops by experts such as celebrity chef Vicky Ratnani, TV food presenters Rocky and Mayur and Rashmi Uday Singh also helped bring in the well travelled food
lovers. “Luxurious dining is about enjoying your meal over conversations. The experience starts with the welcome greeting and extends to the food, ambience and music,” says Mohammed. The décor of Nautanki is in line with their motto—of creating drama. The interiors are inspired by the colours of the peacock, a bird known for its theatrical dance.
