Locally Inspired Culinary Dish

From the Chef - October 2017

Mozambique is justifiably famous for its cuisine. With its 3000km of coastline it's no wonder that many of its renowned dishes involve fresh seafood. The Portuguese originally introduced chillies to Mozambican cooking, with the African Birds Eye Piri Piri chilli resulting in the well-known and much loved Piri Piri sauce that is widely used for prawn and chicken dishes.

But as my youngest turned 10 on Quilalea Island, I said its time, let’s get the books out and take your proper Padi Junior Open Water Scuba course. Yay – up they jumped, off to the Watersports, fins and masks at the ready.
