Organic Italian Lunch with Joy Team

Italian cuisine has developed through centuries of social and economic changes, with roots stretching to antiquity with significant changes occurred with the discovery of the New World and the introduction of potatoes, tomatoes, capsicums, maize and sugar beet. Italian cuisine is known for its regional diversity, especially between the north and the south of the Italian peninsula. It offers an abundance of taste, yet it is generally characterized by its simplicity, with many dishes having only two to four main ingredients. At Joy Community, we rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients that are fresh, organic and from our vegetable garden rather than on elaborate preparation. Some of the main dishes that you will find here are: vegetable lasagna,  home-made tagliatelle pasta with Sicilian pesto, and home-made ravioli with ricotta cheese and spinach.

These lunches require advance registration (at least one day in advance). The cost is Rs. 400 for guests, Rs. 300 for Auroville volounteers,  Aurovilians & Auroville New Comers.
