About the Gourmet Discovery Tour with a Chef
Discover the Mauritian/Creole cuisine; rich in history and flavours and one of the most exotic in the world. The local flavours arose as the island hosted travellers and emigrants from countries as disparate as France, England, Africa, India, China, Malaysia, and other Asian countries. A fusion of all these cultures have helped create the unique Mauritian cuisine.
Through the all-inclusive 4 days/3 nights Gourmet Discovery Tour, you will get to learn more about the local lifestyle and immerse yourself in the local culture by living with a Mauritian family.
You will be welcomed at the guest house by Chef Sandy, a certified chef, cooking instructor and author, in a convivial atmosphere. Throughout your stay, you will get to visit interesting places, enjoy amazing street food as the locals do, taste a variety of dishes and learn hands-on how to cook exotic delicious dishes with the chef.
This large studio, painted in warm colours, with custom crafted furnishing and hand painted wall decors will be exclusively yours during your stay. The room will not be shared with any other person who is not in your group- offering you maximum privacy and comfort.
Upon arrival at the Guesthouse in the north of the island, you will be welcomed with a refreshing cocktail. Depending on your time of arrival, this will be followed by a light lunch.
Afterwards, you can choose to relax and settle in or take a walk to the beautiful golden beach situated close to the guesthouse and enjoy a quick refreshing swim in the crystal-clear water of the Mauritian lagoon. In the evening, enjoy a Mauritian meal at a beachfront restaurant.
