New restaurants in Palm Seaside Gardens, Boca, Delray pizza

When I believe of the dishes I have relished most this summer, the zippy flavors of a unique mint-cilantro dipping sauce come to brain. This lively eco-friendly dip accompanied a fish pakora appetizer I savored at chef Pushkar Marathe’s Ela Curry Kitchen area restaurant on a the latest night.

Massive cubes of marinated nearby fish (mahi mahi that night time) are dipped in a rice-chickpea-flour batter and flash fried. They are served as an appetizer with lime and the green sauce ($17). They are shareable, gluten-free and the great small chunk. 

The spice-creating procedures Marathe employs in his dishes at his Palm Seaside Gardens eating places, Ela and Stage Kitchen, talk to his travels throughout his native India and his like for South Florida-grown elements. I have usually wished to replicate some of these flavors at household — but wherever does 1 even start? One way:

Take a cooking class at Ela

Chef Pushkar Marathe makes paratha bread with his mother Prachi at his new restaurant, Ela Curry Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens.

Marathe, 1 of the five Palm Beach front County cooks to generate a place on this year’s semifinals checklist for a James Beard Award, led a kitchen-counter cooking course at Ela in June. (In attendance was foodie celebrity and Palm Beach front resident Daphne Oz, who shared her course experiences with her 829K Instagram followers.)
