Few days back Kairi Vishranti Homestay had announced Kojagiri Special tour of Kokan to beat Covid fatigue and four couples and 2 singles took this opportunity! And KBBF Ratnagiri had a hand in making it a grand success !
Gargi Deosthali of Pakwann ( पक्वान्न ) provided us packed breakfast of उकडीचे मोदक & थालिपीठ with special garlic Chutney which handed over to us on dot & of course Fantastic taste !
Prof Surendra Thakurdesai , Spouse of our member Mrs Saee Thakurdesai took us to Devache Gothane and we all were mesmerized by his interaction , Knowledge and unique passion for Kokan !
Lunch was at Mrs Saee’s home and all travel veterans were served with heavenly food of Kokan ..all home made from all home grown ingredients!
Suhas Thakurdesai , doyen of KBBF Ratnagiri needs a special mention .
At a very short notice he served food to 7 of us at his superb facility at Hotel Sea Fans even though Kitchen there was closed ! He made fantastic arrangement throwing open the Suite which enabled us to refresh and then enjoy delicious dinner culminating in Kojagiri special milk at terrace with the view of sea & lighthouse .
Thanks to Gargi Deosthali , Mrs Saee & Mrs Surendra Thakurdesai & Lastly Suhas Thakurdesai ! KBBF and specially Ratnagiri is helping me in my Kairi Vishranti Homestay endeavour!
