This December, family-run Poppadoms will celebrate its fourth year of providing the Okanagan with unparalleled locally inspired Indian cuisine featuring seasonal and sustainable produce. To mark the occasion, Poppadoms has decided to pull out all the stops and hold a special birthday event called “4”. On Sunday December 15, “4” will combine the skills of the entire Dosanj family to produce a 5-course meal of contemporary Indian dishes with an Okanagan twist.
Dosanj family friends, chef Rod Butters (RauDZ Regional Table/micro bar.bites), pastry chef Sandrine Raffault-Martin (Sandrine French Pastry and Chocolate), and chef Bernard Casavant will each contribute to the night by preparing one of the courses, along with mom, Jas and daughter, Aman. Son, Harry, winner at the 2013 Okanagan Spirits Winetenders’ MixOff, has prepared a special cocktail menu for the celebration. His Harry Berry Sour (a play on a traditional English whiskey sour) won the People’s Choice award at the competition with its mix of Grey Monk Odyssey Port, Okanagan Spirit whiskey infused with mint and the Cannery Brewing Company’s Maple Stout turned into syrup along with a blackberry lemonade. WSET-certified daughter Jasmin has also chosen a glass of Okanagan bubbly to greet each guest at the party. The Jazz Café Trio and international jazz singer Anna Jacyszyn will meld classical arrangements with Bollywood beats to complete the evening.
Tickets are $115 and are available by calling Poppadoms at 778-753-5563 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit poppadoms.ca/events. (EVENT HAS SOLD OUT!)
