Food Culture in Mumbai City

This week I got invitation to two events that interest me the most – food talks at BMW Guggenheim lab, a mobile laboratory that travels to cities worldwide and is in Mumbai this year.

On 3rd Jan 2013 there is sharing of flavors, recipes and the stories of unique dishes that were enjoyed during the times when the mills were flourishing in Mumbai. Mill communities were the melting pot of migrants and there were diverse culture, tradition and food, which is slowly eroding and losing its significance. It will be interesting to learn about different spices used by various culture.

On 13th Jan 2013 there is a party celebration with fisher folk at Mahim, an interesting evening filled with singing, storytelling, dancing, sharing and of course eating. There will be discussions on their struggles as they face the rapid encroachment on the boundaries of their native villages and threaten the future of Koli livelihood and the possible solutions.

These events will be of great help to food writers and bloggers, as they begin to understand the food culture of Mumbai city.

Thanks for sharing

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.

Whats the Time Please?
