Cape Malay Cooking Safari

Cape Malay Cooking Safari

For me, travelling is all about discovering the local culture. Learning about the history, the people and events that have affected or influenced the culture of that society.

It is fascinating, and makes visiting new destinations that much more interesting.

The fastest way to learn a new culture, is to learn about their foods.

In Cape Town, there is a REAL interactive experience in the Cape Malay quarter, one of the countries oldest established communities. This community dates back to the early settler days, when captives were brought to the shores in the 1600’s to work on the farms.

Start your day with a Walking Tour of this historic, Heritage Protected area, visit to a Community Empowerment Project, the popular local Spice (Masala) shop and the Bo-Kaap Museum.

Then it is time to visit your hostess – a local resident, for an exciting encounter with her religious, cultural and indeed culinary background – in her own home! You will participate in preparing and cooking samoosas, Rooti (flat bread) and chicken or veg curry-in the kitchen around her table. Once the lunch is prepared, you get to sit back, relax and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

It is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the local culture
