Diamonds for Breakfast

Diamonds for Breakfast

By Gauri Devidayal & Vishwas Kulkarni

Cool stories from Bombay’s hottest kitchen

They say that if you really don’t like someone, you should encourage them to open a restaurant. In this tell-all book, first time Bombay restaurateurs Gauri Devidayal and Jay Yousuf spill the beans about running one of the city’s most loved dining establishments. From overcoming failed relationships to surviving a global pandemic, from literally dousing a fire in the kitchen to keeping their cool when an air conditioner came crashing down on a guest, this is one sexy smorgasbord for anyone hungry for an insider’s take on the F&B business. Moreover, Diamonds for Breakfast is also a multi-starrer featuring rockstars and Bollywood producers, socialites and politicians, gangsters and priests, freaks and geeks. Don’t take it with a pinch of salt. It’s all real.
