Learn to make delicacies like hot 'n sweet salsa and blend your own curry.
I mentioned earlier that it was food that first brought me to the Maldives.
As a chef, independent caterer, event maker, product developer and, most recently, a teacher in Greenland, I have always been interested in venturing far
afield in the "culinary universe." And there is a wealth of opportunities to do this on the Maldives.
The fish are beautiful and in a class of their own. I could rave all day about the tuna. The tuna's "little brother" is called Skip Jack.
Tuna is the national dish in the Maldives and it's served in endless variations, morning, mid-day and night. Cooked, fried, smoked, dried,
salted - as a powder or in flakes. The fish market in Malé is open to the general public. It's located down by the harbor. Don't miss it!
The range of fruits, vegetables and spices sold in local markets is just as impressive and inspiring.
If you are a passionate lover of food like me, it's very easy to find yourself in seventh heaven. The variety, size and sweetness of the fruit is enough to
make your head spin.
Spices are displayed in big bags and sacks, and there are chili peppers in a wide range of shades and hues.
Long cinnamon sticks are displayed alongside fresh coconuts, bananas, limes, papaya and vanilla.
We use these ingredients in salsas, marinades, soups, sauces and dressings. For starters, main courses AND desserts.
Life's pleasures are better when they are shared, so let's make food together!
