Calling guests home or throwing a little party, but too lazy to cook up that fancy meal? Leave it to this home-chef who plans and makes fantastic European food for you, and sets up a fine-dining experience at your home.
Chef Shikha started My Home Bistrotook a chef’s training course from France, and learnt to whip up delicious European food. Post the course and training in a restaurant, she came back home to give people a lovely Indo-European experience, infusing Indian flavours in the French cuisine, which is also her speciality.
Here’s how a meal by her works: She arranges lunches and dinners at your home, for a minimum of 6 people and a maximum of 15 to 30 people. And everything from the menu tasting, crockery, cutlery and staff are on board (at an additional cost, apart from what you pay for the food and wine, of course) She calls and discusses the intricacies with you, once you've booked her effortless services for your get-together.
The five-course meal usually starts with an amuse-bouche (a palate tickling dish), a salad, a fish course for non-vegetarians, and a soup for vegetarians. For the main course, she does a plat that may comprise a lamb dish or a fish dish, or something in chicken. For vegetarians, she does herb-marinated roasted vegetables on potato mousse, or a roasted cauliflower on almond and cauliflower puree with maple-glazed bokchoy. And then you have some delectable dessert options- there's lemon pie, St. Sebastian cheesecake, chocolate mousse with homemade granola, and much more. The five-course meal included two glasses of Indian wine and costs INR 3,250 for a non-veg spread and INR 2,750 for a veg spread.
The meals are exquisite, and the set-up, lovely. Do give Shikha a call on 98923 86700 to discuss further details, and book yourself a fancy fine-dining experience, in the comforts of your home!
