Spice Route hosts "Kerala by Sea and by Land" Dinner on April 9
Experience one of Spice Route Supper Club’s unique dining extravaganzas on Saturday, April 9 at 8 p.m. at their “Kerala by Sea and by Land” dinner. The club encourages gastronomical destination dining setting but at the relaxed feel of eating in the home of a local, and this week it’s Kerala! To give you a bit of background on Kerala … it's the lush, tropical state on India's southern coast where spices infuse business and cuisine. Kerala native Asha Gomez chefs the night of regional flavors and a menu featuring crispy Kerala-style fish cakes with ginger, green chile and green papaya relish; uthappam savory pancakes with two-shrimp curry; a pork vindaloo slider on H&F Bread Company buns and tempered by mango and blood orange salad; classic beef biryani rice dish with traditional accompaniments of pappadam, spiced yogurt, cucumber salad, boiled egg and lemon pickle; and vattayapam, a steamed cake with a texture similar to angel food cake with a custard pudding of ripe plantains, cardamom and coconut milk. $85 per person includes wine pairings, beer or tea. The supper club's Westside location is revealed to guests upon sign up.
