Goan Cuisine

Almost 500 years ago the Portuguese sailed to the East in search of exotic spices and Goa (on the west coast of India, 400 km south of Bombay) became their main settlement. Here began the spicy Indo-European gastronomic romance… the fiery food of the region, mellowed to accommodate gentler European palates. Continental cuisine was enriched with a bouquet of spices as only the virtuosity of Goan cooks could achieve. This distinct culinary tradition and our age-old family recipes are now part of the rich new flavour of multicultural Australia.
