Cooking Class in Uganda or Rwanda
This Cooking class is the best way to connect with the locals learning their cultural traditions as we shall meet them with their daily work, like farming in the fields, collecting water from the wells, and fetching firewood for use in their three-stone cooking place and getting an opportunity to learn how to prepare local food.
The cooking class day starts with introducing you to your host family household in the village and collecting firewood and water from the well.
Then we proceed to the garden to harvest organic fresh vegetables, and depending on the season, we pick beans, banana plantain, and potatoes and walk through the local market to shop for more ingredients like spices, salt, tomatoes, and onions the local way.
We proceed home to peel potatoes and banana plantain, start a fire on the traditional three-stone fire, cook the food, and sit around the fire, sharing stories with the household family members.
Location: The Cooking Class’s location will depend on your trip’s itinerary. The class takes about 2 hours. Bamboo Ecotours organizes the cooking class with local families around Bwindi National Park and Volcanoes National Park.
