“Essence of India”

For the past ten years, The Casual Gourmet has been proud to partner with Cape Cod Healthcare and the fabulous committee in Falmouth, for the gala to support Falmouth Hospital. This event has always been one of the highlights of our summer, but this year might have been the best yet! The theme was “Essence of India” and from staff in traditional Indian garb, to a menu that reflected several of the diverse regions of India, we and they went all out!
