Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita is set to welcome MasterChef UK 2012 winner Shelina Permalloo for a series of tropically inspired culinary events in December 2015 to mark the upcoming launch of her first UK restaurant lakaz maman, which is scheduled to open in Southampton in early 2016.
Since winning the BBC’s popular cookery programme, Shelina has appeared on many prominent culinary television programmes, including a return to MasterChef UK as a food critic, and has penned an award-winning cookbook, Sunshine on a Plate.
The partnership with Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita will allow Shelina to illustrate the modern Mauritian streetfood culinary style that is the concept behind her new restaurant, with Pop-Up lakaz maman events offering both Resort guests and local food bloggers and Instagrammers the opportunity to interact with Shelina during live cooking sessions, plus a chance to taste a number of her recipes.
The Pop-up lakaz maman events at Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita will take place on the week commencing Monday 14 December:
Monday 14 December – Guests of Four Seasons will be invited to an exclusive Mauritian cooking class in the Resort’s Cotomili Herb Garden to discover Shelina’s top tips on creating exotically infused flavours.
Tuesday 15 December – Playing host to some of the island’s most avid food bloggers and Instagrammers, Shelina will prepare a selection of recipes in a special Instameet cooking class and lunch. Follow #lakazmaman for live updates from the event.
Wednesday 16 December – The Resort’s locally -inspired Zilwa Night at Bambou restaurant will feature an extra-special inclusion, with Shelina herself being present at the live cooking stands to assist guests in choosing their preferred flavours from a selection of her dishes.
