The one thing that is distinct in unifying worlds is food. As a child I was always struck by how food always brought people together, even after a good family fight, a calm settled in and peace was made through a beautiful pasta or great outside barbeque dinner.
My point is that this is a huge part of me bringing people together in celebration of our differences and the pride we share in what we prepare for our guests with the intention of hospitality no holds barred. It is beautiful to see shows like Parts Unknown with Anthony Bourdain, or Jamie Oliver in a monastery teaching monks new cuisine, bringing such passion in my heart to see a culture open their doors to a stranger and the pride they have in the stories they share of food and life, enlightening. So shedding all borders I present a dish inspired by Guru India one of many restaurants featured at Taste of Edmonton which is a summer festival displaying local restaurants and their key dishes. This is where I tasted Guru India's sweet and spicy cauliflower, absolutely amazing.
My take on this dish is Sweet Chili Mango Cauliflower.
I hope you enjoy this Sweet Chili Mango Cauliflower as much as I enjoyed making it.Print
