A Taste of Maputo: Cooking Class

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $229 USD / Adult
Enjoy a scenic drive towards the central market where you'll be met by a chef from the 5-star Polana Serena Hotel, for a guided walking tour through Feima Market as he describes the local produce and explains the local culture and culinary delights of the region. After, head to the Polana Serena Hotel where you'll be welcomed and directed to your private cooking class venue. During this hands-on experience, your chef will provide insights into the nuances, celebrated flavors, and history of traditional Maputo cuisine. Mozambican food is decidedly spicy due to the chili peppers, garlic and lemons that are liberally used. Peri-peri means "spicy-spicy" and it's a standard accompaniment and one of the most characteristic flavors of the cuisine. Traditionally it's made by pounding red chilies, garlic, salt, olive oil, and lemon juice together. After, sit down and enjoy the fruits of your labor with fellow guests.
