Add a little Spice

July 5, 2017

 At the House of Spices in Zanzibar people are learning how to cook Swahili style!


 First the aprons and hats - then on to the cooking!


 Here is the menu







This is how it goes:

  • A guide will meet the guests at their hotel at about 09.30 am and proceed to the House of Spices in the middle of Zanzibar Stone Town, meet & greet with the chef

  • Next, together with the guide, they will go to Darajani for a tour inside the spice, fruit, meat & fish markets – 1 hour

  • The next stage is in the kitchen with House of Spices cook(s) where the guests will help to prepare a meal fixed by the main chef – 1h / 1h30

  • Finally they will enjoy the prepared meal at HOS with 1 dessert included.

  • Cost: USD 35 per person (min 2 pax, but also, due to kitchen size… a max of 4pax at a time)
