Linda's Journey share their story below...
"My journey started 15yrs ago working in Goa, learning my local cuisine in a 5 starred hotel, Venturing forward to Dubai I trained under Michelin Starred Chefs which was named as the best Seafood restaurant in the UAE, I gained further international experience in Bermuda before returning to Goa where I was able to showcase local Goan Cuisine at a pre-opening 5starred hotel. A move to London brought the opportunity for me to work at starred west end hotels for the past five years.
"My First Chef residency was at the Old Nun head Pub for 7weeks which we thoroughly enjoyed showcasing my entire culinary journey. Currently we have Residency at the Hill Station Café at New Cross Gate promoting Goan cuisine every Fridays. Along with my husband, who is currently working at one of the best west end hotel, I now want to take you on my culinary journey at the Great Guns Social cooking my native Goan Cuisine using fresh local produce.
"Goan cuisine –with the many colonial conquests the produce, ingredients, and cooking methods evolved, the early Mughals influenced and adapted their cuisine with rich coconut based curries. The Portuguese arrival in the early 16 century and the spice route majorly influenced the culture lifestyle and thus formed the new spice –vinegar based curries, grilled and stuffed seafood, and spicier pork chorico.
"The vegetarian cuisine is untouched and simply divine with way less heat, asafetida, tamarind, kokum (wild mangos teen)) loads of fresh coconut and organic jaggery (palm/sugarcane) for sweetening.
