UPDATE 7th december

Hello all,

Plans are changing a little bit. I won't be able to manage the shoping part tomorrow, so Sarika and I are going to TST tonight to prepare it.

So if you can come in a such short notice, you're welcome. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Those who cannot, No worry, on one hand we'll give you all the information tomorrow and on the other, there will be other occasions to organise an other meetup.

Details here below:

--> SHOPPING PART

. Meeting  point : TST MTR, exit A1, outside

. When : 7th december at 18:30

--> COOKING PART

. Meeting  point : TIN HAU MTR, exit A2, outside

. When : 8th december at 18:00

. How much : we'll try to spend MAX 100HKD per person. We'll share everything. And according to the shopping I'll announce you the exact pitch tonight.

. RSVP : are attending only the persons who RSVPed Yes, please. Please no pressure as I OPEN MY HOME which is not a palace

. The menu : Lentil daal, Paneer, Bindi subji, Vegetarian curry, Fruit salad

. The organisation : we are 9 and we have 4 meals. So we'll split in little groups to prepare the dishes. Everyone will feel as a Chef ! And all of us will be proud of our homemade diner !

Hello Desidils !

As a foodie I like to cooke and understand all kind of food. When I was in Paris and London I used to know the Indian districts as my pocket.
I used to wander in grocery stores with friends and friends of friends.
And we had a lot of fun cooking curries, briyanis or pastries in one kitchen of ours.
However, I don't really know where to find these places. And maybe other people are like me.

So my idea would be to to gather a small group of poeple and our experiences of addresses, recipes... We could visit some good indian groceries and then go to my place to cooke and taste our delights of the day :)
This first try could deal with vegetarian food

. Date : TBA. Weekend should be more convenient for everybody
. Nb of RSVP. According to my flat's space, I would say 6-7 persons
. Where :
°° grocery store : I follow you :)
°° my kitchen / living room : Tin Hau
. Theme of this event : maybe we could begin with vegetarian !

Thanks,
And let's have fun :)

      I'm not sure to understand your question Sarika ? Thé shopping was initially set at 4:30, we would have be back home at 6:00 and begun cooking at earliest 6:30-7:00.

    I like the idea of Sarika who suggested to announce the dishes on the forum.
    --- > So let's go for three dishes :)
    --- > let's go for three groups (I'm free ^^)

    Oh lalala :) this event became suddenly very popular. Thank you very very much everybody. But if we cook together I can afford to welcome only 6-7 people in my humble flat as I said in the description. Sorry I can't control the RSVPs.
    Actually, now we are 13, here is my suggestion :
    . for eating, we can go on the commun roof top of the residence or even Victoria Park which is next to my doorstep, so no problem for the space.
    . However for the cooking part, my kitchen is very small. So we could try 3 dishes. As we are 13, that makes 3 teams of 4/5.
    Are you ok ?
