Learn, Connect and Share a Taste of Authentic Tanzanian Cuisine with the Local Women
Swahili Cooking Lessons
A fun, eye-opening and mouth-watering Swahili cooking lesson is a unique way to get an authentic taste of the real Tanzania – and take it home with you! Spend half a day in the company of local women in a Tanzanian kitchen, learning how to prepare and cook traditional Swahili dishes from Zanzibar and the mainland.
Preparing Your First Tanzanian Food & Tasting it!
Your mama (your chef) will take you and your guide to a local market to source all the ingredients and produce that you’ll need. This is an experience in itself, with the vibrant colors, smells and sounds of the market mingling with the shouts of local traders and the sharing of jokes and gossip! You will then be trained in how to prepare food such as ugali, wali, chapati, mboga, tuwi, mchuzi, visheti – and more – and will sample your dishes for lunch! We work with local women who speak Swahili and a little English (your guide will be able to translate when necessary, but you might even pick up one or two Swahili words while you’re at it!).
