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 Tria, for a meal that celebrates the multi-cultural cooking of his very own mother’s homeland: boulette soup with jumbo lump crab and chayote dumplings, shellfish-chicken broth, scallions; gayak, a selection of Mauritian street food; grilled curry marinated head-on shrimp with sauce rouge and hearts of palm salad; wood grilled prime filet mignon with peppercorn and red currant demi glace, grilled pineapple, achard de legumes, farata; brûléed banana tart with dulce de leche, vanilla-rum ice cream.
