Biting into the fried, gooey batter of the doughnut shaped gulab jamun, the lighter-than-air pistachio cream enveloping the palate, as the tantalising mix of warm Old Monk rum and sugar syrup burns gently down the thr­oat, Walter Allwyn was well into the middle of Chef Thomas Zacharia’s culinary creation. If there ever was a place better than heaven, Allwyn was there, because he had not just eaten a world-renowned dish by a master of modern Indian cuisine, he had also helped him make it. This was not just a midsummer night’s dream. It was a four-month-long internship at Zacharia’s restaurant, Bombay Canteen.

So inspired is Allwyn by Zacharia’s innovative style that he plans to go back to learn all he can of Indian cuisine.
