Recipe Description:

Mauritius was an uninhabited island when it was first settled on by Arab traders during the Middle Ages. Centuries of colonisation and migration has produced a uniquely cosmopolitan food culture, remixing French, Indian and Chinese cuisine into something uniquely suited to the relatively mild tropical climate. Chouchou, a type of squash originally from Mexico, is often plucked straight from the vine in the cook’s own garden, and then sautéed in a mild, aromatic blend of spices until at its juicy, refreshing best. This is a fruity, flavoursome array of dishes, blending European herbs with Asian spices and technique.
