Zend Meherwan Zend, Yazdani Restaurant & Bakery

Zend Meherwan Zend of Fort’s legendary Yazdani Bakery & Restaurant expired yesterday.

Zend was “…perhaps the first baker in Mumbai to go beyond Bun, Brun, Laadi pav and Sliced Bread” observed food historian Kurush Dalal yesterday, adding  “He has gone to the big bakery in the sky today”.

We extend our best wishes to Zend’s family at this time, and all who knew him.

A piece Sharada Dwivedi shared with Irani Chai, Mumbai in 2007 includes an interview with Zend and can be found here

Sad. He was fun, liked jokes as he worked his cash counter. RIP uncle.
