Our new menu for May 14th, 2011: Kerala, family style
We structure many of the supper clubs as five-course meals, adapting
Western preparation to traditional South Indian dishes. But I thought
it would be fun to do a supper that more accurately reflects how we
eat in Kerala, in which all dishes are brought to the table at once,
served onto a banana leaf and eaten by hand. So we’re blending service
styles with the following menu:
Delicate fish cakes, seasoned with ginger and green chile and served
with green papaya pickle.
Family-style dinner: An abundant spread of authentic Kerala dishes,
including beef curry, roast duck, Kerala-style fried chicken, red
cabbage thoren (a coconut-flecked stir fry), okra pachadi (fried okra
in spiced yogurt), lentil curry, yogurt rice and a few other
surprises. Guests will eat on individual banana leaves—eating with
your hands is entirely optional.
A celebration of mangos, which are currently at the height of their season.
