Food Market Tour and Cooking Class with Celine and Grandma


Hi, my name is Celine and I look forward to sharing Rwanda's culinary secrets with you during my Kigali Cooking Class and Food Market Tour.

My Kigali cooking class will start with a special tour of Kimironko Market, which is home to a vast tented market, swarming with people and exciting stalls selling everything you can imagine, from fruit and vegetables to gorgeous jewelry and handcrafted products. You will see the daily hustle and bustle of sellers selling a variety of items, and I'll show you how Rwandans do our shopping, of which bargaining plays a key role. While we're at Kimironko Market, we'll buy the groceries we'll use during the cooking class.

After we finish up at the market, we'll take a short drive to my house where I'll introduce you to my wonderful grandma, who will help us during the cooking process and also show you her traditional weaving techniques, which she does in her spare time.

Then we'll start cooking together while enjoying some delicious and locally-sourced Rwandan coffee or tea. While we laugh and get to know each other, you will learn how an authentic Rwandan home-cooked meal is made. Your tastebuds will surely thank you for the expertise. After the cooking class, you can impress your friends back home with your local knowledge of traditional East African cooking! Once the food is ready, we'll all gather together and share the food while exchanging stories of our lives.

We look forward to welcoming you into our home and sharing our culinary secrets with you during our traditional cooking class!
