An artfully curated selection of classic regional sauces crafted to delight your inner epicurean and transport your senses to two delicious destinations – East and West Africa.
The first stop of this gastronomic food crawl starts off at Zanzibar Island where you get introduced to traditional Zanzibari cuisine which is a blend of many cultures and flavors – African, Persian, Arabian, and Asian – producing a fusion of distinctive taste profiles that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Our Zanzibari curry is layered with spices and spiked generously with coconut cream for an indulgent taste of the tropics.
Next stop is at Mogadishu, Somalia where delicious chutneys and flaky sambusas go together like ketchup and fries. Our tamarind-date sauce is inspired by Shidni, a delicious and irresistible Somali chutney. Sweet dates and tart tamarind are simmered for hours in a fragrant infusion of aromatics; then seasoned generously with an exotic spice blend. The result is a bold and tantalizing sauce that is slightly sweet, sour, savory, and spicy – all at once. It’s hard to resist!
You are now sailing on the Atlantic Ocean headed towards The Gambia West Africa; renowned for its national dish – Domoda aka Maffé. Bold, rich, bright and peanutty – the flavors of Maffé will warm you from the inside out and transport you to the capital city of Banjul. No wonder it’s called African Soul Food.
You have arrived at your final destination – Casamance, Senegal where hospitality is an artform and the cuisine is simple, yet sophisticated. Yassa is arguably the second (some might say third) most loved dish by locals and tourists alike. Our traditional Yassa sauce is vibrant, spicy, and bursting with intense flavors while retaining its traditional and authentic roots. It’s seafood’s perfect mate.
Happy Exploring – Your Epicurean Adventure Awaits.
