“This Food Festival was conceptualized to encourage the community to take pride in its culinary history by showcasing traditional recipes and modern tastes thus serving the past, present and future. While the essence of the event is to bring another touristic attraction to Zanzibar, the festival is an opportunity for travellers to experience an amalgamation of tastes and flavours all week long. Our debut launch received an overwhelming participation both from vendors and attendees. We have added more activities to this year’s edition and we look forward to a gastronomic celebration that will cement Zanzibar as the best food destination in East Africa” said Garry Friend, Festival Organizer.
