Dinner in Maweni usually means a buffet with a seriously eclectic mix of dishes. You may find italian pizza, indian curries, french quiche, ethiopian shiro, greek moussaka, nigerian yollof, lebanese hummus and various swahili and sambaa dishes, all cooked from the ground up with mostly locally grown organic ingridients, and seafood fresh from the beach in Tanga. There is always a vegetable soup, homemade bread, locally produced cheese, several vegetarian dishes and fruit. The coffee is organic arabica grown and freshly roasted in our backyard, often claimed to be the best in the country. Milk and cream is from the neighbour’s cows who occasionally graze in the garden, and the eggs from hens proven to be clever and agile enough to escape the eagles patrolling the valley.
