Arriving to Mignon’s Casa de Campo villa we were greeted by the overwhelming and irresistible smell of curry, as well as the surprising sight of all our friends dressed in an inventive variety of Indian-style garments. Many of the ladies wore saris and were adorned with heavy gold jewelry, whilst some brave men wore traditional robes (well done Ray).

The food, which Mignon had prepared herself using imported Indian spices and ingredientes included samosas and poppadoms with spicy mango chutney to start, followed by a variety of different curry’s; eggplant, beets, sausage, mincemeat, chicken and vegetables. And the end to the perfect meal was the carrot cake and orange cake served with Mignon’s legendary homemade ice cream in a variety of interesting flavors; ginger, coconut, mint and mango among others!

Congratulations Mignon – yet another fine and fiery Indian Night
