At the end of the day, we shall eat everything we shall have prepared, and you’ll taste the home-made fresh juice from the fruits bought on the market tour.  There’s now where else in the world where you will find this type of cooking and dining, not in even in the catering schools.

Boo is a type of vegetable spiced with local ingredients and is quite tasty. Both are served hot and steaming and is still unique to Uganda.
