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, Executive Chef of Terrain, for a meal that celebrates the multi-cultural cooking of his very own mother’s homeland: ginger prawn fritters with sweet mango and red chili chutney; millionaire’s salad with heart of palm, shellfish and sauce rouge; bouillon poisson with coconut chutney; roasted langoustine with coconut jasmine rice, spinach and vanilla cream; and for dessert, pineapple upside-down cake with rum caramel and cardamom clotted cream.
