BOHRI GRAND FEAST
Fri 5 May 2017, 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM Singapore Standard Time Singapore Time
Friday 5th May at 8pm
Gastronomical enlightenment awaits, as you experience the Bohri cuisine and richly diverse culture alongside our celebrated ‘Grand Feast Sorceress’ – Ruqxana.
Bohri cuisine is beyond most people’s grasp. You had to beg bohri friends, gatecrash bohri weddings to get a spoonful of that bohri biryani, khichda, raan or dabba gosht!
Ruqxana weaves new life into old family recipes and food service customs. She grew up in one of Singapore’s Bohri families, an Indian-Muslim group known for their food migration from Yemen and East Africa into the cities of Pakistan and India. She creates exclusive Bohra dinners for NOSHtrekker. From the outset she’ll tell you, “The family that eats together, stays together”.
The essence and creation of Bohri cuisine is an art form that has been passed on through generations
This memorable culinary journey will change all that you know about eating Indian. Ruqxana accompanies you through the evening on this food adventure – sharing her food culture and traditions. This Bohri feast is accompanied by Carnatic flute played by Chris Choo – sounds of ancient meditative Ragas to compliment your meal.
The evening will not only tantalize your taste buds, but it’s also an ode to the history of Singapore and its Indian heritage.
Whats on the menu?
You’ll fold up onto a comfortable cushion and dine around a thaal platter. Dinner begins by passing the salt to cleanse the palate before Ruqxana elegantly places dessert on the center of the thaal and invites her guest to pull his or her share. “We consider it auspicious to begin our meal with a sweet dish” says Ruqxana. “Every dinner starts with the best.”
Dessert is followed by a meat starter and gives way to another dessert chased with a biryani or lentil curry, before another round of dessert and then the service goes back to the beginning again. The meal closes with a final lick of salt signifying the end of the feast.
