Coquina – dining

(By Appointment)

Click Here to watch an introductory VIDEO

Dining always was and is a great artistic opportunity and more so it is at Coquina in Lucknow. This is a small experiential kitchen that specializes in Awadhi Cuisine.

Many dishes that were once extinct or were just a home-kitchen names or even were secret recipes from the royal kitchens of nobility and the common subjects, are revived here to be once again spread all over as a secret re-told by Coquina.

Coquina is an artisan (also called ‘artisanal’) kitchen that produces food from local produce in small portions for limited consumption of a maximum of 6 persons at a time. It also offers a combination of traditional and modern cooking by knowledgeable individuals, who are cooks by passion and not by profession. Our guests get a chance to learn about this Passion Cuisine, cook for themselves under expert supervision and enjoy the meal as well.

At times a Khansama or a Rakabdar from the Nawab’s kitchen supervises the meal himself and at other times Nawab himself is present to dine with the guest and appreciate the preparations or of course criticize too.

Coquina is a small 160 sq ft, immaculately furnished and a well equipped Kitchen-cum-private dining room (Booked privately by appointment, not an open facility), that is happy to welcome a maximum of six guests at a time, but is rather happier with just two for a private session. Coquina welcomes discerning travellers who intend to understand, learn and experiment with local cuisine and of course dine for an experience.
