India is experiencing a profound healthcare crisis due to a devastating second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. And while it’s easy to feel powerless from thousands of kilometres away, Jessi Singh is offering a way to help.
The Indian-born chef and restaurateur opened his first Adelaide venue Daughter in Law earlier this year. The colourful pan-Indian restaurant is hosting a “curry for relief” fundraiser dinner on Wednesday May 19, with options for vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian and gluten-free diners. The feasts will all be served family-style, with four appetisers, a thali or round platter with bowls of different curries, and a dessert.
Tickets also include pre-dinner cocktails and a glass of Cava (Spanish sparkling wine), with additional beer and wine options.
Bookings are $80 per person and can be made via the venue’s website.
All proceeds will go towards buying and air-shipping medical supplies to India with help from doctors at Victoria’s Royal Women’s and St Vincent’s hospitals.
