Farm to Plate
Fresh produce served straight to your table. Truly the most special way to experience the tastes of Africa.
The process of Farm to Plate at safari camps in Africa typically involves sourcing fresh, locally grown produce and utilising it in the camp’s kitchen to create delicious meals for guests.
The first step in the Farm to Plate process is identifying and partnering with local farmers in the surrounding communities. These farmers are typically small-scale producers who use sustainable, organic farming methods to grow a variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
Once the camp has established relationships with local farmers, they work together to determine which crops are in season and available for purchase. The camp will then place orders for the produce they need, which is typically delivered directly to the camp’s kitchen.
The chefs at the safari camp then work their culinary magic, using the fresh ingredients to create meals that showcase the flavours of the region. This often means incorporating traditional African spices and cooking techniques, as well as utilising Western cooking methods to create a fusion of flavours.
One of the benefits of the Farm to Plate process is that it supports the local economy by providing a market for small-scale farmers. It also promotes sustainable agriculture and reduces the carbon footprint associated with shipping food long distances.
Additionally, guests at the safari camp get to enjoy delicious, fresh, and nutritious meals that are full of flavour and free from harmful chemicals or preservatives.
The Farm to Plate process is an excellent way to support the local economy, promote sustainability, and provide guests with delicious, healthy meals that showcase the flavours of the region. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved.
