In Madagascar, we came across a local man selling his home made cake Koba, on a stand that he wheeled from town to town to make his income. The cake is Koba wrapped with banana leaves then cooked on evaporator for a day.
Are you an avid foodie who post images of every meal when travelling, or rather you crave traditional homemade cooking from local families
If you’re a massive foodie you’ll want to include your “must eats” high on your places of interest as well. Hell even if you’re not a massive foodie, everyone loves food right! And no better way to explore local cultures and people than tasting their local cuisine. Whether food be delicious or the most vile meal you’ve ever tasted, food creates lasting memories, that particular sweet smell of the flakey profiteroles at a local bakery in France, or the crunchy salty taste of fried crickets on the roadside stall in Cambodia. When travelling it’s easy to quickly head into the local fast food outlet to grab that known burger and shake you know, yet you can have that when you’re back home, instead take the extra thirty minutes to find a locally produced and cooked meals, even if they are take away snacks in a paper bag. When waiting for your food start chatting to the staff either about how they prepare the food, do they grow the fresh produce, even ask for their recommendations for local areas of interest, most of the time they’d suggest to visit a local attraction that wasn’t on your radar.
