The first time I visited Flavour Diaries was more than a year ago. Just a couple of weeks after Anjali opened her food experience space in Khar.
Located above Khar Social, Anjali’s cooking studio is a culinary getaway within the city. As soon as you step out of the elevator, the modern open-kitchen concept suffused with natural light invites you into the culinary world of Anjali Patak.
Her grandfather was a pioneering Gujarati food entrepreneur who migrated from Africa to London and founded what became the largest Indian food manufacturer in the world: Patak’s. Born into a foodie family, Anjali trained at the prestigious Leiths School of Food & Wine in London and worked with famous chefs like Jamie Olivier in London.
Born and brought up in the UK, Anjali Patak moved to Mumbai in 2015 and a few months later, opened her cooking studio Flavour Diaries in Khar.
Flavour Diaries is an interactive foodie space. Anjali offers private cooking classes ranging from Sushi Making, British Baking, Mexican and Mediterranean to Indian, Vietnamese and French cuisines. You can also host a private birthday dinner at Flavour’s – I am sure your guests will love it.
You can also check out the space over a typical British High Tea with flavourful British scones and homemade jam. Delicious! Just make sure to call up and let them know you are coming…
Bonus tip: Spend some time browsing through the many cooking books that Anjali kept in the entrance area of Flavour Diaries – including her own cook book ‘Secrets from my Indian Family Kitchen’.
