Menu Le Baobab Cuisine

Le Baobab Cuisine offers a taste of gourmet Senegalese cuisine, all prepared on site by Chef Abdoulaye Gaye with fresh vegetable, fish and meat and special African ingredients – from smoked fish to Gombos, peppers and spices. The cuisine of Senegal has been influenced by the many who have touched its shores – French, Portuguese, East Asians, Tuareg – and is shaped by the tradition of its many ethnic groups, such as Wolof, Serer, Peul, as well as of its regions, from the Sahel to Casamance. Senegalese food thus reflects all of these high quality cuisines and traditions, creating a very special and delicate mixing of tastes.

Because Senegal borders the Atlantic Ocean, fish is an important staple. Chicken, lamb, and beef are also used in Senegalese cooking, alongside fresh vegetables, sweet potatos, yam, peanuts and the very special scotch bonnet pepper.
