Think of Mauritius and palm trees, sandy white beaches and crystal clear water all pop into mind. Yep to all of the above, but the food….THE FOOD. For a teeny island the influences and styles are quite phenomenal, ranging from Creole, French, Indian and Chinese. And boy, did I eat. A word of warning however, if you ask for chilli sauce you will get the chilliest chilli sauce in the whole of chillidom.
I love drinking Bloody Mary’s (minus the Worcestershire Sauce), especially on lazy Sunday mornings. But how about this for a little twist on the original…an Asian Bloody Mary. Simply swap the Worcestershire Sauce and Tabasco for Sriracha and wasabi paste, and that’s it! Serve as an aperitif before an oriental/asian inspired dinner party.
