Presenting the Island of Mauritius Cooking Class at Putia Cooking School, Wednesday 1st May 2019 at 6.30pm
Putia Cooking School in Brisbane offers bespoke cooking classes in cuisines from countries around the world, from Bali to Mauritius to India to Malaysian and to Italy. Every class offers participants the opportunity to be immersed in the cooking of different cultures.
Rani is from the beautiful island of Mauritius, where the culture is reflected in the food, it is a fusion of Indian, French and Chinese influences which, over the years have developed into a cuisine of its own. When she was growing up in Mauritius, modern conveniences were few and far between. There were no supermarkets or ready-made foods and as a result, traditional methods and ingredients prevailed.
Rani’s family is huge and when she was younger, the house was always full of food needing to be prepared for a crowd. She grew up surrounded by the sounds and smells of food constantly being prepared. When she went to Canada to study, she greatly missed the food and culture of her homeland and started returning to Mauritius regularly to learn the methods and traditions from her aunts and other relatives.
When she arrived in Brisbane, she realised that Australian quarantine would not permit the import of homemade seasonings and pickles so she started making her own. Now Rani is sharing her secrets of this exotic cuisine at our cooking school in Banyo, Brisbane.
