Malagasy cuisine is known to include many flavours from various cultures that inhabit the island. Southeast Asian, African, Indian, and many more different cultures are examples of the types of cuisine one can expect on the island. Most dishes are served along side of rice as this is a staple here in Madagascar.
Whether it's the fresh spices or the endemic herbs that make the Malagasy cuisine renowned, or the history lesson that the variety of food available has to offer, the flavors of the food scene in Mada are impeccable.
This morning, around 11 am you will be picked up from your hotel and whisked off to the local market to buy some fresh ingredients for your dinner this evening.
Local markets in different countries offer an amazing insight into the culture and lifestyle of the area. Whether it's the hustle and bustle or the vibrant people, colors, and smells, market trips always make for a very memorable and unique experience.
Our market trip this morning is an odyssey it itself and gives us a chance to appreciate the flavors and endemic foods of Madagascar, first hand! One of the best aspects of the market is the fact that you get to interact with many locals. Whether they are vendors at the market or locals who are dropping by for their daily shop, you can definitely expect many warm smiles and to feel the genuineness of the Malagasy people here.
Let the cooking begin!
This afternoon, around 2 pm, we will begin our course as we prepare all of our treats gathered at the market this morning. Today we will prepare three plates; two courses for dinner and, of course, a delicious dessert.
With our very experienced chef today, you'll learn how to cook a couple of authentic Malagasy dishes using carefully chosen ingredients unique to Madagascar. Your chef today will take you step by step through the cooking process and introduce you to Malagasy cuisine.
Once you've completed cooking this delicious meal, you'll finally be able to enjoy it! At approximately 7 pm this evening, along with the chef, you'll sit down, relax and enjoy what you've worked so hard for today!
