Highlights

  • Enjoy an authentic meal with a local Cairo family
  • Learn about Egyptian culture and the typical lifestyle for men and women in the Middle East

Description

Share a real Egyptian meal with a local family on this tasty Cairo tour. Visit a family home, chat with the women of the house, check out the ingredients in a typical local kitchen, and learn the recipes for favorite traditional Egyptian dishes. Think kushari, stuffed vegetables, fattah, molokhia, lentil soup, mossaqa, and that famous Egyptian rice with vermicelli. Who’s hungry?! After feasting on delicious food and dessert, you’ll have time to relax, enjoy an Egyptian drink, and chat with family members to learn about Egypt’s culture and what life is like for women in the Middle East. This is your opportunity to ask everything you want to know about Egyptian life, so don’t be shy!   Your Cairo food adventure will introduce you to true Egyptian hospitality, traditions, and even the local sense of humor as you sit back and sip a cup of Egypt’s famous mint tea or Egyptian coffee. If you’re feeling competitive, have a go at a game of Backgammon – but be warned, it’s hard to beat an Egyptian at their favorite game!   Once you’ve finished your evening and experienced the genuine warmth of this Egyptian family, you’ll bid ma’ salama (goodbye) to new friends and be taken back to your hotel.
