Bengali Night Dinner

The first Bengali Night, organized by Bear Lake homeowner Sheila Ahmad, was a truly beautiful experience! Eight fellow homeowners gathered for an intimate evening of friendship and cultural cuisine.

“The air was heavy with fragrant spices. Laughter filled the air. I showed everyone how to tell, when the rich, creamy, chicken curry was just about done. The perfect flick of the wrist, to make the perfect garlic cilantro paratha. My heart swelled with happiness, as I shared the tastes, aroma, and fragrance of my native land.

Although, I was so far away from home, that night I felt like, I had never left…”

– Sheila Ahmad
