Robatayaki Food Fest at Umame & Joss
Chef Farrokh Khambata is bringing the Japanese version of barbeque (Robatayaki, sometimes shortened to Robata) to Umame in Churchgate and Joss in Santacruz. If sushi is all you can think of when you hear about Japanese cuisine, you should definitely head for this food festival. “Robata originates from a centuries-old country style of cooking followed by northern Japanese fishermen. It uses a communal hearth (irori) that serves as both a cooking area and a source of heat, and is found on the northernmost island of Japan, Hokkaido. However, the menu that we have created also has a few modern surprises,” says Farrokh.

Her goal is to highlight how human activity affects the oceans. Speaking about her latest collection, Preethi says, “Gaia Reloaded is my interpretation of the future of marine life, which has evolved to adapt to the destruction of their habitat, in order to survive in the new environment of contemporary civilisation.
