My Mauritian heritage and the traditions of our cuisine are very important to my cooking, but as my food is modern, it’s important to learn about other styles of cooking to enhance my own. Right now, I’m particularly influenced by my love of Far Eastern and North African cuisine.
|Mauritian cuisine is a fiery and delicious blend of African, French, Chinese and Indian foodie influences.|
If you’re heading to Mauritius, there are a few absolute must-see sights, one being the Île aux Cerfs – a beautiful island off the east coast, home to the renowned Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club. But for a foodie fix, take a trip to Marche de Flacq fruit and vegetable market, or Mahébourg’s Monday market out on the waterfront for exquisite takeaway bites.
