SUPPER CLUB: Mauritian Sept Cari Cavadee by Vanesha Khadaroo

June 23, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

- $50

Thaipoosam cavadee is one of many popular festivals celebrated by Indo-Mauritians whose ancestors originated from Tamil Nadu, India; a ten-day celebration of fasting and devotion to Lord Muruga, culminating in a grand feast. For many, the highlight of any Tamil festival in Mauritius is the mouth-watering ‘Sept Cari’ (seven ‘currys’), a spread consisting of many delicious vegetable dishes served on fresh banana leaves along with hot rice. The sept cari in Mauritius goes beyond the actual meal itself, summing up a journey of culinary traditions from Southern India to the festive tables of a vibrant islander Indian Diaspora.

Mauritian Chef and longtime Dep favourite Vanesha Khadaroo of La Marmite Mauricienne has offered to prepare this very unique, authentic (and labour-intensive!) meal to share with us. The banquet begins with a glass of cool panakon at a table that has been covered in fresh banana leaves. The rice and seven curries are brought to the table and served directly onto the leaves, where the meal is then eaten with one’s hands.
