About your host,
Get updated on all experiences by this host in future.
I am a Communications expert by profession for a health tech start-up. I live in Bangalore with my husband in a lovely open apartment. I would definitely list food as one of my main passions, hobby, interests with a good measure of travel thrown in. I like traveling to the mountains , Himalayas are my love, the more remote the better, some of my happiest memories include sitting in a remote valley with the sun shining over the vast meadow, with a book by my side & not a soul in site. I am currently attempting to discover Buddhism as practised in different places on earth- be it Spiti valley or Bhutan. Traditional cultures, well preserved, undiscovered & remote nature- rivers, mountains excites me. I firmly believe in discovering a place through its food, I like traditional food cooked in houses , made with ingredients grown in the farm or backyard. I always have to pay for excess baggage because of all the local ingredients I drag in.
  • Inspiration
    I live to eat may not be enough to describe my passion for food, I love to cook for people with lots of food, laughter and conversations.
  • What we will be doing?
    What does summer mean to you? Summer to me are the trees which bloom with bright flowers , summer means lazy long days and enjoying a cool sherbet on a hot afternoon reading a book. Summer brings some beautiful produce in the Bangalore markets. Come enjoy your Saturday night at our home with a specially crafted 7 course summer menu with a particular focus on fresh vegetables & fruits that hopefully take you back to the best summer holidays that you ever had. All the dishes are created by me and it is not your usual summer menu, expected the unexpected.

Amazing food. Interesting Folks. Look forward to attending more such events.
2018-05-16
This is the first time we attended an Openout event. I had my reservations about meeting new people and exploring a completely new concept of meal. The entire experience was amazing - the overall setup, the warm hosts and special mention of the amazing swing in the balcony. Needless to mention that the food and drinks were a treat to our tastebuds. Will look forward for such experiences in future as well.

This was my first open out and I couldn't have a chosen a better host. The couple were very welcoming and Pratyusha is a great cook. Thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Thank you Sahana

Pratyusha's warm welcome and spacious balcony were an immediate Ice breaker. Loved the casual and relaxed vibe to the afternoon... The dishes were authentic Bhutanese and I loved the Beef Datsi and the Potato Datsi dishes... spiked with that fiery accompaniment it was a well rounded meal... Pratyusha's anecdotes about life in Bhutan and the resulting conversations around it were all very interesting n lively... In all a very relaxed and enjoyable afternoon... a day well spent :)
