Gauri Devidayal is a law graduate from the University College London and a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants England & Wales. She pursued her career as a tax consultant with PWC in London and Mumbai for 8 years.
After 8 years in London, Gauri returned to Mumbai. In early 2008, she met her husband, Jay Yousuf and was soon persuaded to leave the tax profession and to join him on his restaurant adventure. Gauri supported Jay in creating The Table, which became a global fame in no time.
She has also been at the forefront of the farm to table initiative for the restaurant by setting up The Table Farm in Alibag, from where the restaurant gets much of its fresh produce. Most recently, Gauri co-founded Magazine Street Kitchen along with Jay Yousuf and Group Executive Chef, Alex Sanchez, a culinary playground for intimate dinners, cooking workshops and more, housed in a restored heritage structure, in Byculla.
The Kitchen is also the base for the newly launched bakery – Mag St Bread Co – helmed by Head Baker, Chef Rachelle Andrade.
