Take a Yabouy cooking lesson in Brufut Heights

For a unique experience and to learn about The Gambia’s colourful culture, why not take a cooking lesson at the Yabouy Home Cooking School. Ida Cham Njai welcomes guests into her home and provides excellent hospitality whilst teaching visitors about Gambian way of life.

You are welcomed to try on traditional clothing before accompanying Ida to the local markets to buy fresh ingredients like spices and fresh vegetables. Ida will then teach an easy to follow cooking lesson where you’ll learn to make traditional meals like Yassa and Domoda. Lunch is served and eaten together and is the time to learn more about their cultural values and exchange stories from your own.
