Zambia and Zimbabwe Etiquette
international dining etiquette
Dining Etiquette in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Dining is typically done on low stools or around a mat on the floor, and individuals are careful to keep their body positions low when dining with elders or superiors.
In Zambia, the national dish is called nsima: it is the ubiquitous stiff porridge found throughout central and southern Africa, made from any number of grains, and often eaten with a sauce made from vegetables and spices.
In Zimbabwe it is called sadza. The drink at each meal, and in between, in most cases, is tea or water, although beer, often of the homebrewed variety is also very popular.
