CREATING THE MENU
As we love showcasing traditional Zambian dishes, many of the recipes have been passed down from generation to generation in the chefs’ families. This gives the menu an air of authenticity and love. As our honoured guests, we want you to feel that love with every dish, from the first eggs cooked over the morning campfire to the last bite of dessert made with luscious, locally grown fruits.
We combine our beloved Zambian dishes with inspiration from around the world to create a menu that is both genuine and appealing to our international clientele. Our culinary staff have been trained by Sylva Banda, a well-known chef who cooks for visiting statesmen and dignitaries. Her Lusaka-based company, Sylva’s Catering, specialises in teaching chefs on how to prepare traditional dishes using modern cooking and presentation techniques to create an elevated experience.
Alongside our traditional dishes, we always serve a selection of more international cuisine and several salads featuring crisp produce and homemade vinaigrettes. All of our breads and desserts are made daily from scratch. There’s nothing better than bread warm from the oven being toasted over the coals of the morning campfire then topped with local eggs that have deep, golden yolks.
