With the trend for cookery holidays growing year on year many holidaymakers are looking further afield to expand their culinary horizons.
Learning to cook the national food of the country you visit on holiday can be a fascinating insight into the place itself.
In a recent article for Gourmet Travel, Laura Archer recommended visitors to Mauritius take cookery classes to get a step ahead with the new trend for Mauritian cuisine.
At Constance Le Prince Maurice and Constance Belle Mare Plage guests are offered the opportunity to take cookery lessons with one of our world-class chefs who will introduce them to the use of local spices and flavours.
Classes are two hours long and take place in one of our professional kitchens. They are available to book right up to the day before.
The type of dishes you will learn to cook may include:
- Creole style fish salad and vegetable samoussa
- Steamed prawns with kaffir lime, pineapple with spicy salt, tapioca and coconut milk
- Chicken cooked with garam masala.
Classes at Constance Belle Mare Plage also include a 15-minute session with one of our experienced sommeliers who will offer advice on wines to pair with the dishes you have learnt to cook.
