விருந்து – Tamil Feasts
விருந்து Tamil Feasts is a social enterprise supporting recently settled asylum seekers through the celebration of food and culture. Serving up traditional Sri Lankan fare prepared by Tamil men currently seeking asylum in Australia, these thrice-weekly feasts create a context in which the cooks are able to share the food heritage of their Sri Lankan homeland with the wider community. This unique enterprise simultaneously creates a space in which Australians are able to show their support of individuals who are presently undergoing the difficult experience of seeking refuge in a foreign land – all the while partaking in some seriously tasty food!
Diners feast upon a traditional banquet of curries, chutneys, vadai, dahl, kormas and masalas made by Proud Tamil cooks Sri, Nirma, Niro and Nigethan. It is a unique opportunity to experience the vibrant colour, spice and flavour of authentic Tamil cuisine—rarely found outside Sri Lanka.
Feasts are served on Monday, Tuesday and Friday nights out of the CERES Community Kitchen (located just below the Merri Table Café) at 6:30pm. These three-course feasts are a slamming deal for only $30. Kiddos-sized feast plates (without the spice!) are valued at $20. Bubs join in the fun for free! With an ever-changing menu, no two feasts are the same!
Tamil Feasts have a limited capacity and are pre-book only! Booking links close at 2pm on the day of the feast To book go to ceres.org.au/tamil-feasts
