Awaze, pronounced "a-wáh-zee", is a fiery sauce that is commonly served with Ethiopian meals. Every variety has its own unique ingredients, but nearly all start with berebere, or Ethiopian red chile powder. Our logo is inspired by the wood carved pattern from the ceiling of the 11th century church Yimrehanna Kristos near Lalibela
Our guides are professional and knowledgeable. Each has received their license after passing a regimen of training and courses required by the Ethiopian government. All are proficient in English and Amharic. We can also contract with guides who speak, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Italian.
