More than 30 restaurants will participate in this year’s edition of the Stone Town Food Festival. Following the successful inauguration of the food festival last year with more than 20 participating restaurants that brought together some of the town’s finest and traditional restaurateurs in honuor of World Food Day, this year’s festival is expected to draw more flavours and fusion cuisines from all around Stone Town.
Park Hyatt Zanzibar will be presenting a delicious 2-course menu thoughtfully created by Executive Chef, Ali Cherati.
“We are very excited to be taking part in this year’s Stone Town Food Festival, an extraordinary culinary event that we hope in the next few years will be drawing many international travellers and foodies to Zanzibar,” said Garry Friend, General Manager – Park Hyatt Zanzibar.
“Our vision is to use this food festival to promote tourism in Zanzibar, especially considering the fact that our Island is known world over for authentic spices and herbs,” he added.
Stone Town is the heartbeat of Zanzibar and has literally drawn people from all corners of the world for centuries by creating tantalizing Swahili cuisine. Due to the tourism boom in the last decade, the city has seen a rise in restaurants and cafes serving worldwide cuisines, adding more international influence to Zanzibar. The 6 day festival will be held across Stone Town, represented by various participating restaurants and cafes. This year will also include a 2-day ‘street food’ venue at Forodhani Gardens, already known for its evening street food vendors. The festival will start from 9th to 14th of October.
