The Indian restaurant is hosting a fixed menu dinner to raise funds for much needed food aid and medical supplies.
DJ Singh and Raj Singh, owners of CBD Gaylord restaurant, have lost family members to the devastating second wave of coronavirus in India. So they fundraise in the way they know best – by serving food in their Indian restaurant.
Gaylord, housed in the 1880s Grand Hotel on Spencer Street, is hosting a fundraising dinner in partnership with Mukti Australia, which works to empower disadvantaged and vulnerable women and children in India. Due to the impact of Covid-19, it has provided personal protective equipment, medicine and food relief to affected communities.
Dinner consists of three starters, three main courses and a dessert, as well as a glass of wine. Expect creamy chicken tikka platters, crispy triangles of samosa, tender butter chicken, dal makhani and paan kulfi, frozen dessert with betel leaves, fennel seeds and gulkand (petals of rose preserved).
You will also hear the country director of Mukti Australia explain how the organization has helped partner charities in India and Sri Lanka throughout the pandemic.
From 6.30 p.m.
