About your host,
Get updated on all experiences by this host in future.
I'm a third generation Bombayite. Bombay is where home and the heart will always be. My roots are from the coastal belt and that's the cuisine I grew up eating at home. As much as I love food, I love cooking and consider it as the best medium to express myself. I have been cooking for more than two decades and through OpenOut's I hope to tell stories rooted around Bombay and the coast.

  • Inspiration
    I love travel and love talking about it. Having stayed and travelled extensively through France, this experience is for all of us to gather around each others travel stories and share an inspired meal.
  • What we will be doing?
    As the quote goes - I'm in love with cities I've never been to and people I've never met. Travel brings out so much in us and the stories are always something you want to hear. So, I invite you home for a dinner inspired by my stay in France and look forward to spend a conversation fuelled friday evening of great memories.

This was one of the Fridays when, listening to the stories, you feel like setting sail, however, are too full to even make a move out after dinner. The host, Natasha's vivacity and passion behind explaining each item on the menu, added to the experience, which was already made exciting by anecdotes from Paris to Uzbekistan, Mumbai to Myanmar.
2019-03-16
A warm host, interesting company from very different walks of life, fun tales of travel, and above all, a delectable spread: my first experience with Open Out was memorable in more ways than one. Thank you, Natasha, for being such a good host. Totally blown by your culinary skills! The Hachis Parmentier and the Baba Au Rhum stole the show.

There's nothing called a typically Mumbai cusine, because the Maximum City is a conglomeration of cultures, is what our gracious host, Natasha proclaimed. What followed was a riot of diverse taste and aroma, truly epitomising Mumbai, in a pleasant afternoon, perched up at the top of a tower overlooking restored lake adjacent to a busy road.

This was a runway hit: Starting with the refreshing kokum-tini and ending with the macaroons straight from Mumbai and packed the night before. The experience was accentuated by Natasha's enthusiastic narration of the history of, or an anecdote behind, each dish. The revived Agara Lake looks pretty from the road; it inspires awe from the eleventh floor.

Loved the Bombay Lunch box experience in Bangalore, what else to ask for - it was perfect sat noon to wind up with kokum drink and Bombay "Authentic" vadapav + main course meal. Natasha and Aunty were so warm and welcomed us with too much food. Lyca (their pet) was the star, she is adorable. Experience"guaranteed to delight" for every food lover.

Cesar Chavez once said "If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with him… the people who give you their food give you their heart." This is what you experience when you visit Natasha's home. Selection of dishes represented the true Mumbai cuisine. I got the opportunity to taste authentic vada pav just like how you get on the streets of Mumbai. I couldn't believe that Natasha actually bought the pav from one of the famous bakery in Mumbai. Natasha is an amazing host along with her mother and not to forget the dog. I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable time .
