What better way to learn about and appreciate other cultures through food and music?
Did you know, in China it's customary to let elders start eating first? It's also bad etiquette to stick your chopsticks vertically in your food as it reminds some Chinese people of funerals. A custom in some parts of China is to place joss sticks (sticks of incense) into a pot by the rice next to the ancestor altar.
Dining in India varies across the different regions, but it is common in many areas to not use cutlery. Instead, you make sure you wash your hands and use bread to scoop the food from shared bowls.
In Thailand, you usually use a fork and spoon, and if dining in a restaurant, the person who is perceived to be the richest pays the bill!
Starting at 6.30pm, this is a great opportunity to discover different cultures, have a feed and enjoy entertainment - all for the price of just $5/adult. Children under 12 are free (conditions apply).
This event is possible due to funding provided by Community Centres SA as part of their Social Cohesion Framework Project.
