Go with your gut

For mixologist Ananth Nayak and pastry chef Abhilasha Rajan, what began as a lockdown project to decode the chemistry behind fermentation has now turned into a home bakery and fermentry. Nayak shares that at Barmbay, all their products — country loaves, rustic rolls, focaccia, sourdough ladi pav, banana bread, etc — are made with 100 per cent sourdough culture and hence, easy on the gut. "We follow a traditional slow fermentation process; all our dough is cold fermented for at least 12 to 18 hours." he says.
