La Kaze Mama
South Coast, Mauritius
Experience the art of Mauritian home cooking with this unique restaurant concept at Shanti Maurice. Located in the aromatic herb garden, La Kaze Mama enables guests to taste truly authentic Mauritian cuisine in a memorable outdoor setting.
La Kaze Mama brings a Mauritian Grandma to the heart of the resort to demonstrate her cooking skills in the hotel’s vegetable and herb garden. Guests are welcomed with a local rum based cocktail made from tamarind rum, lemon juice, ginger and spices. Then, surrounded by tropical trees and plants, Grandma will demonstrate how to make “Farata”, a pancake-like traditional Mauritian bread. Seated under a pergola on rustic garden furniture, diners will enjoy a rustic style buffet of traditional salads and a selection of curries with pickles and chutneys. The home-style meal is finished off with a selection of homemade Mauritian sweets, sorbets and tropical fruits. Assisted by her family, Grandma will serve the dinner herself while sharing Mauritian cooking tips and stories about her life on the island.
