An Evening in Kerala: Indian feast on Feb. 18

I first heard about Spice Route Supper Club a while back when other foodies started raving about this underground Indian feasts. Now comes word that Spice Route is partnering with Dinner Party Atlanta (the fellows from Top Flr and Sound Table) for An Evening in Kerala on February 18.

This event will be a feast of the first order - enjoy 21 courses of Asha Gomez's vegetarian Indian fare, as well as traditional dance and entertainment. The event will take place in the old Macy's space downtown. I for one would be there with bells on if I weren't going to be celebrating my birthday south of the border!

Seating is limited so act quickly. Find out more about Kerala cuisine from the Spice Route founder herself:

WHO:              Spice Route Supper Club and Dinner Party Atlanta

WHAT:           Two of the most unique supper club experiences in Atlanta are partnering to bring guests a traditional 21-course vegetarian meal (called Sadya) inspired by the spices of Kerala, India, and accompanied by traditional Kerala dance, music and storytelling. The meal will be prepared by Kerala native Asha Gomez, and the evening will feature traditional entertainment, cuisine and refreshments from this lush tropical state on the southern coast of India. For this special cultural event, the space at 200 Peachtree will be transformed into an enchanting, tropical hamlet that will remind guests of an ancient land where myth, magic and cuisine combine to create a truly unforgettable experience.  In keeping with the authenticity of the Sadya event, guests will eat with their hands on traditional banana leaves while seated on floor cushions. Comfortable clothing is recommended.  Tickets cost $100 per person and can be purchased online  

A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Raksha, which is a Georgia-based non-profit organization that promotes a stronger and healthier South Asian community through free and confidential direct services, education and advocacy.
