Executive Chef Paul Kinny says, “The food is rich, flavourful and infused with aromas. The chefs have brought an array ingredients from Hyderabad, Rampur and Lucknow.”

Non-vegetarians will not be disappointed either, with the smoked ham, chicken or bacon fondues.

All about the onion
Café Salt Water cooks up a food festival like no other. The festival is centered on the omnipresent onion.

As Chef Grisham says, “This menu is based around the onion because it’s so versatile. It pairs beautifully with almost anything from the simple rhubarb to the delicate foie gras. As a wonder plant, it can be incorporated to add crunch to a dish, cooked on slow heat to achieve caramelisation or even as a good pairing even with chocolate.”

The dessert of Caremelised onion and dark chocolate panna cotta will be a first even for the most adventurous foodies and is a must try.

When: September 27- October 10
Where: Salt Water Cafe, Bandra west
Contact: 26434441/32710520

There’s no place like Mumbai for a variety of food festivals regardless of the time of year. So go and satisfy your palate with some delectable food and drink.
