Join us for a South Indian brunch with The Tiffin Club: a pop-up dinner series dedicated to showcasing regional Indian food in a contemporary and thought-provoking way. Its companion blog, Tiffin, serves as a forum for recipes, travel stories, interviews with chefs, writers, home cooks, and more.
South Indian FILTER COFFEE.
A beaker of spicy RASAM, tamarind and pepper-spiked broth, POORI-SAAGU, South India’s answer to fried dough, with a side of spiced potato.
CHOW CHOW BHATH, the savory-sweet breakfast treat that’s just as delicious as its name.
For a finale, a bowl of piping-hot BISI BELE AVALAKKI, a savory rice porridge studded with tender vegetables and topped with a soft-boiled, deep-fried egg.
The Tiffin Club is run by Rohan Kamicheril and Mike Jesson, husbands who love Indian food. Rohan grew up in Bangalore, India and Mike on Massachusetts’ North Shore. Rohan writes for the Tiffin blog and cooks while Mike devises the wine pairings and cocktails for the dinners and takes care of our dinner guests.
The Tiffin Club is named for the light midday meal popular throughout India and for the ubiquitous, much-loved lunchboxes that are used to carry those meals to schools and workplaces around the country. We couldn't think of a more perfect way to embody all the wonderful things Indian food means to us: convenience, surprise, variety, and above all else, deliciousness!
