Nau­tanki –Gas­tro­nom­i­cal Drama

India Today - - SIMPLY GUJARATT -

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.
