Taste Local Mumbai Food made by a Local in her Home
Why take this tour?
Enjoy a private and authentic home-cooked meal with your host Yakuta in her home. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Food has always been a central part of Yakuta’s life as she has been blessed with an incredible culinary lineage. A Bhori Muslim with ancestral roots that trace back to Yemen, she grew up with her cousins and relatives in a cottage in Agripada, the heart of the Muslim area of Mumbai. At the age of 13 she moved to the suburbs with her Bohri mother and Maharashtrian Hindu father. 13 years later she married a Parsi, so she now her cooking is an eclectic mix of Bohri Muslim, Maharashtrian and Parsi traditions. Her passion and love for food guided her to switch professions and start a catering business called Cold Food Company which specializes in dishes that are best enjoyed cold or at room temperature. Yakuta believes that every meal has a story to tell and she looks forward to sharing hers with guests.
