Mum's Kitchen, in a nutshell, is a growing movement headed by a group of dedicated people from the culinary field striving to rescue it from extinction. Here, the "MOTHERS" from different parts of Goa have contributed, and helped us compile our menu. Here every effort is taken to sustain the genuineness and quality of each recipe, and to bring on to the table some very delectable 'archaic' dishes.
Over the years, Goa has evolved from a very quiet little state with beautiful virgin beaches to a bustling tourist epicentre. This has enticed loads of business consisting primarily of restaurants, which started serving multi/fusion cuisines. Due to the lack of dedication and passion to maintain accuracy by such restaurants, Goan cuisine had started to lose its originality.
We initially started as a multi-cuisine, and over the years we realized that the trend of 'Fusion Cuisine' had started infecting the Goan cuisine and that such a decline would be distressingly appalling, therefore we committed all our vigour in reviving our splendid cuisine.
The secrets of this cuisine are however, held by the Dear Mothers of Goa. Customarily, all the family recipes and the fine art of cooking them were imparted within the family, in form of direct teaching. We realized that the only way to prepare bona fide Goan food is to learn directly from these gifted mothers. This is why we have been able to establish ourselves as the only incontrovertible 'Mum's Kitchen' in Goa. The complexities of preparing Goan food and the usage of traditional methods, which was cooking and serving in earthen-ware, are implemented for some of the signature dishes, as well as modern techniques have been employed.
We at Mum's Kitchen have been procuring Goan delicacies from the endowed mothers and are beseeching all the mothers to step forward and aid us breathe life into the passion that was once in the Goan food.
