Multi-cultural feast connects immigrants
For many, it represents an opportunity to experience a small piece of what they left behind after they moved to Canada.
"It's very good, we are enjoying it," said Glory Lordusamy, who moved to Yellowknife from India two months ago.
"We are missing our families so it's an opportunity for a few minutes to forget about our families and build friendship with other people," Lordusamy said.
There were people from India, Brazil, Armenia and Maritius serving up dishes from their homelands.
It isn't always easy for them to find the ingredients. Curry powder here is different in flavour, and other main ingredients in Indian dishes are supplied by friends in Edmonton.
"I bring my own spices," said Nasreem Mutoola, who moved from Maritius 18 months ago when her husband took a job with Laurelton Diamonds.
"Curry powder you can't get here. The stuff here is not as good, the taste is not the same," Mutoola said.
Ana Perdomo organizes the feast each week. "It's important because you miss a lot of 'home,' so when you have the opportunity to come to meet with other immigrants, you find we have a lot of things in common," Perdomo said.
