The empty dining area of the ‘The Catch Of The Day’, offers a perfect setting for the interview and photo shoot we have scheduled with Dominic Jose. The sunlight pouring in through an opening in the thatched roof above makes for a natural spotlight at the entrance of the restaurant. A mid-sized replica of the famous Kerala snake boat sets the scene. Despite being situated smack in the middle of a bustling city, we find ourselves surrounded by the bounty of nature on this property on Willingdon Island in Kochi.
