Zanzinet is a forum that brings together Zanzibaris of all backgrounds from the world at large. It is therefore an electronic mirror image of Zanzibar. Its members share something in common; the rich food traditions from the Spice Islands of Zanzibar.
Zanzibar's history is unique in East Africa. For centuries, its
strategic position, the flourishing maritime trade, the beauty of its
landscape, and the hospitality of its people have made Zanzibar a
famous destination for traders, tourists, and other world wanderers.
The Bantus, Omanis, Persians, Indians, Portuguese, Chinese and many
more who, at some point, called Zanzibar their home left a mark on the
islands of Zanzibar. They brought along
a multitude of cultures and of course, a myriad of food traditions.
Easy going and easy to integrate natives of Zanzibar quickly absorbed food
traditions from their visitors, modified them to fit with the available

colourful, spicy, and mouth-wetting recipes from appetizers to deserts.
