A shy chef and an introvert writer once met at a coffee shop and instantly connected over their love for good food and great books. Something was born from this connection and I am excited to present Chef Shriya Shetty and my passion project #TheLiteraryTable – A pop-up dinner with books as its central theme. Follow us on Instagram @TheLIteraryTable for updates.
The young chef started her first job with Chef Kelvin Cheung at Ellipsis, worked at the famed Gaggan in Bangkok and came back to India to learn her ancestral cuisine. She moved to Mangalore from Mumbai to learn the food her grandmother cooked. She now runs a culinary studio there.
A food and travel writer, Shirin traveled vicariously through books before she actually set out to explore the world. She freelances for various publications and works as a consultant.
“We solemnly swear that we’re up to no good.”
We’re guilty of the obvious but who doesn’t love the good ol’ Rowling and her magical world? Yes, our first The Literary Table pop-up is inspired from the Harry Potter series. But, we’re not serving you the Great Hall dinner. Our house elves our working on something different, something special. All we can tell you about the 8-course menu is that it’ll be a mix of meat, seafood and vegetarian dishes.
