Description
 
Mark Twain once wrote, “Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius.” Located in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar and southeast of the Seychelles, the small island of Mauritius was “discovered” (though not settled) by Arab and Portuguese sailors. Following Dutch, French and British colonial periods, the multi-ethnic island attained independence in 1968. Its tropical climate, sapphire blue waters and white powder beaches have helped make Mauritius a major tourist destination, with cuisine that reflects its melting pot makeup of Indian, African, Chinese and European (mostly French) cultures. Join Brian Lofink of The Railroad Street Bar & Grille in Linfield, PA, for a meal that celebrates the multi-cultural cooking of his very own mother’s homeland: millionaire’s salad (hearts of palm, shellfish, sauce rouge); dholl puri (lima bean curry, achar de legumes, coriander chutney); octopus rougaille (with cardamom basmati rice, farata); and coconut papaya panna cotta (served with black vanilla tea and butter cookies).
