A 20 minutes’ drive will take us to Tanji market were we collect our local products which we will use for our dish of the day. Participants will be allowed to shop freely and experience the hassle and bustle with the local vendors. We will spend more or less one hour at the market.
From the market we drive back to the centre were participants will take part in the making of the food from stage to stage.
We will spend approximately 2 hours on the food process. Lunch will be served in a local way which means 3 to 4 people are sharing a big plate and participants can even try their skills in eating with bare hands.
Local juice will be served whiles chatting at the ‘Bantaba’, the place where the locals sit and discuss their daily news.
