Tanzanian Meal Celebration

On the 3rd July 2010 Carlotta Johnson hosted a Tanzanian meal Celebration. 23 people gathered for a typical Tanzanian meal of maize, chapatis, chicken and coconut and vegetables, kidney beans, lentils and a cold salad. For dessert was a selection of tropical fruits.

Everyone enjoyed this "taste of Tanzania".  We had a half hour entertainment with Kathy Bainbridge a singer and a raffle which included artefacts from Tanzania as well as other gifts.

There was an UPDATE of pictures and news from Tanzania.

Some comments made about the evening were

"you opened the world to me, and I hope I won't let that door close again"

"a lively evening, creative, positive "

A total of £190 was raised on the evening and a generous couple who could not be there donated £50 to the project.

People loved the "tastes" of Tanzania.  And many people said they learned a lot about the country and one person offered to host another Tanzanian evening at her house.
