Brinda will be sharing her Mauritian culinary experiences. Eating simple uncomplicated food that is freshly prepared right in front of you. Using the simplest ingredients as well as an array of spices, you will recreate some of the most popular vegetarian street food from Mauritius.
Brinda will give you an insight into traditional multi-cultural Mauritian food. When we talk of culture and traditions in Mauritius, the unique ethnic diversity immediately transpires. Mauritius does not have one culture, but the blending of several cultures and traditions. Mauritian culture is based on the diversity of the population of different customs and traditions stemming from those who, during the last 400 years, have settled on the island’s shores.
For a tiny island, Mauritius has an incredibly rich and diverse food culture, influences from its mélange of inhabitants (Creole, French, Chinese and Indian) and the use of spices in my cooking.
Expect to make a selection of dishes such as:
The evening will be a mixture of demonstration and some hands on cooking with lots of tips, questions, answers and tasting.
We will finish with a supper of all the food we have made. You will leave with a comprehensive pack of recipes so that you can recreate the recipes at home.
This is a past course but let us know if you'd be interested in this course in the future.
