Gourmet Cairo

Gourmet Cairo
Destination(s): Cairo

The Gourmet Egypt trip is designed for foodies who want to sample a range of traditional Egyptian foods, as well as see some of the most important sights in Cairo.

Egyptian cuisine is varied, and is influenced by Turkish, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and African cuisine, as well as by ancient Egyptian recipes. It tends to be quite homely, very filling, and heavy on the veggies and pulses.

Traditional Egyptian foods include fuul (mashed, spiced fava beans), koshary (a mix of pasta, lentils, chickpeas, fried onions and tomato sauce) and molokheiya (a slimy green vegetable also known as Jew’s Mallow). Chicken and beef are more common than lamb; seafood is also popular, as is pigeon!

The Gourmet Egypt trip will give you the opportunity to try all of these foods, and more. Gourmet Egypt includes in its itinerary some classic restaurants, and also suggestions of fresh produce bazaars to visit. There is also the chance to attend a cookery class. read more about Gourmet Cairo... Read More
