Tamil temptations

Chef Niro.

Chef Niro from Tuka Tuka Kothu Roti Ma is cooking up some ‘Tamil Temptations’ for a second time after the very successful ‘Tamil Feast’ hosted by Macedon Ranges Rural Australians for Refugees in May.

On a cold Woodend night, 60 people enjoyed authentic Sri Lankan dishes at a relaxed and enjoyable evening. Not only were their tummies filled, but their minds also opened by Pauline Brown from MRRAR who gave a short update about the ongoing and current issues facing refugees within our community.

Niro, a Sri Lankan Tamil who had himself sought asylum in Australia to escape violence and persecution in his home country, now runs a successful catering business and is very happy to help MRRAR host another meal of delicious Tamil food to raise money for refugees and people seeking Asylum in Australia.

The evening will be at The Church of Christ in New Gisborne, on Saturday August 19. Doors open at 5.30, with the meal served at 6pm. BYO alcohol (and an empty stomach). Tickets are $35 per adult, $15 per primary school child and $90 per family of four.
