The cooking class will be live from Zimbabwe so you can easily follow along and ask questions whenever you are confused.

Zimbabwe is situated in the Southern Africa and it is marked by 2 important rivers of Africa: Zambezi and Limpopo which provide a great quantity of fish, which are used in the Zimbabwean cuisine.

Zimbabwe has a various flora and fauna, full of wild plants and animals. Besides these, the plantations of Zimbabwe (which are spread on 7% of the territory) include corn and coffee, 2 staple elements of the Zimbabwean diet. Maize is another staple aliment, this is consumed both for the national beverages and as a meal: there is the sadza (a stiff maize dish) and the whawha (maize beer).

Due to the fact that Zimbabwe is a cosmopolitan society, as the population is formed of various African nations, like Shona, Tonga or Ndebele, but also of Europeans and Asians, the Zimbabwe cuisine presents a variety and flexibility of meals and tastes.

Using the right amount of spices for example is essential – either for spicing up the taste or for coloring the dish. Zimbabwean cuisine uses elements from various cooking traditions borrowed from their neighbors and developed from their own traditional dishes. While there are no specific or unique preparation methods for Zimbabwean cooking, we should point out that attention to detail is important.
