Whilst the Mauritius Australia Connection web site is now a Mauritian Community Portal web site for the Mauritian Community in Australia, Clancy and Madeleine always want to make available the very best of Mauritian Cuisine in print.
Mauritian cuisine will titillate your taste buds like no other cuisine. This unique cuisine is a combination of French, African, Malagasy, English, Indian, Tamil, Telegu, Muslim and Chinese gastronomic delights that will bring to your table a whole new spectrum of tastes and flavours. Evolving from this, the Mauritian Creole cuisine is also unique in that it evokes a subtle and flavoursome blend of its constituent cultural mix, supercharged with a rich culinary heritage.
It has been a long held dream of Madeleine and Clancy to share their passion for Mauritian Cuisine worldwide. This book does just that and will also share with you the rich culinary history of Mauritian Cuisine, honouring the people who left their own motherlands to call Mauritius home.
