Our newest member of the family is Marina's husband Devin who is from Mauritius.  When we were celebrating Little Miss M's birthday, I decided to make some Mauritian recipes as a surprise to him.  

This Chicken Daube flavored with warm Island spices went together easily and was delicious.  Devin and the whole family were very happy.
