Unique Dining Experience:
A Taste of India: An Exotic Dinner for Eight Plus Entertainment by Classical Indian Dancer, Akari Ueoka and Henna Artist April Hope

The evening will begin with Akari Ueoka, an accomplished, beautiful dancer, who will delight the company with a classical Odissi Indian dance, which is both sensuous and technically precise. The dance will be followed by an authentic Indian meal for eight prepared by Uma Dugied of Star Anise Indian Cuisine. Uma is known for her talent at making North and South Indian dishes. The dinner will include appetizers, a six course meal and mouth-watering desserts, all made with aromatic spices and herbs and fresh ingredients. Dinner will be served in traditional style on banana leaves. After dinner, invite your women guests to indulge in custom henna hand art by creative henna design artist April Hope. Immersion in this exotic cultural evening is a truly unique dining experience not to be missed.
