Why Seychellois Cuisine is a Reflection of the Country’s Multiculturalism – Food for Thought!

Due to its resplendence, the country has evolved in to a fine tourist destination with the larger of the islands boasting of many a Seychelles beach resort.

Fresh and Refreshing

The proximity to the African continent, the influence of passersby from Europe and the impact of the rich culture of the Asian neighbours are very apparent when you seat yourself to dine at any restaurant or hotel in Seychelles starting from AVANI Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa to the food bazaars down town. Many islands are self sufficient as far as their meals are concerned; therefore, you will only be served the freshest of seafood, vegetables and fruits.

 

Spice it Up
Spices play a key role in the food with coconut milk being the base for most gravy. Rice and breadfruit are a constant inclusion in their meal as a source of carbohydrate. The cooking of pulao rice and masala curries would have been adopted from Indian counterparts while the Chinese have introduced the consumption of giant crabs and pork.

 

The Indigenous List

In addition to these dishes that bear testimony to the presence of multiple cultures, there are items on any menu that are almost completely indigenous. For instance the locals consume a particular species of bats known as fruit bats and shark chutney which is a preferred accompaniment of rice actually does consist of shark flesh.
