Cook with us!

Come and cook in our African outdoor kitchen, Baobab Kitchen! Enjoy life, get your family or friends together or bring your colleagues to this joyful, relaxing experience, inspired by vibrant colours, aromas, succulent flavours and an African beat. We welcome pre-booked parties of 10 to 30 persons during daytime, afternoon or evening, from Mid-May to first weekend of October.

In the Baobab Kitchen, you cook and bake over a fire in African cast-iron pots and enjoy togetherness in the light of a crackling fire and oil lamps. We’ve done all preparations. Now the fun starts! You can help out as much as you like. We promise it will be tasty!

Select your own dishes from many African countries and combine as you like. Our passion is to offer flavours that vibrate of the African joy of cooking over fire. Allergies, vegetarian meals or special requests? We will help you to design a menu that will suit everyone. You can bring your own drinks to the cooking and to the supper. We also sell cold drinks by the glass from our Café menu.
