Chhat (छत) – open air popup private kitchen on the terrace
‘Chhat’ is a vernacular for an open terrace or a roof top. The name ‘Chhat’ became popular among all of us at Tornos as a hang-out area, when we often assembled here for a casual chat or organised some small internal get-together to cut the venue cost.
This place is a popup kitchen (on a home rooftop) that comes alive to hold a cooking session in an unpretentious casual home-like setting or to enjoy home-cooked potluck dinner (non-commercial. It is not a restaurant or a paid eatery ). It can accommodate a maximum of 25 guests at a time for live-cooking interactive sessions, based a bit on the concept of, ‘Guestaurant’. A guestaurant is a unique concept also at times referred to as, ‘Anti-Restaurant’ or a ‘Supper Club’ that is more personal in nature and not a a commercial restaurant and revolves around the main theme of exclusive cooking aimed at not making commercial profits, but to share the passion of food and knowledge of cuisine with like-minded patrons. The Chhat as we refer to it (or a home terrace) could be an ideal place to enjoy an interactive cooking session in a home setting.
This is a min. 2 hours programme and can only be arranged from October to March, during evenings, after 1830 hrs.
