Today, we invite you to embark on a one-of-a-kind culinary tour in Cape Town’s colourful Bo-Kaap area. Join us for an amazing culinary experience as we delve into the region’s rich history, culture, and flavours with our special Bo-Kaap Cooking Course.
Discover the Colourful Bo-Kaap
Our journey begins in the heart of the renowned and vivid houses of Bo-Kaap. This ancient area, known for its quaint, colorful facades, is the cradle of Bishop Tutu’s Rainbow Nation, a cultural melting pot where Southeast Asian, North West African, and European influences combine. What better way to discover Bo-Kaap’s rich cultural tapestry than through its Malay cuisine?
The Art of Cape Malay Cooking
Our cheerful guide will greet you as you enter the Bo-Kaap Museum, setting the tone for an amazing culinary excursion. We provide an optional pick-up service from your Cape Town accommodation for your convenience. The excursion, which lasts about 3-4 hours, is a private guided Cape Malay culinary experience that may be tailored to your schedule.
From Shop Visits to Home Cooking
Our trip takes you on a lovely walk through the charming Bo-Kaap, including stops at one or two local stores (depending on their hours of operation). Before the true magic unfolds – your cooking journey in a traditional Cape Malay family kitchen – you can immerse yourself in the local culture at these pitstops.
Learn, Cook, and Savor
You’ll roll rotis, fry chili bits, make fragrant curries, and masterfully wrap samoosas with the help of our excellent host chef. The cooking experience is appropriate for both vegetarians and vegans, guaranteeing that everyone may partake in this delectable culinary trip. Learning to cook together becomes a fun and meaningful way to bond with friends or other travelers as you work side by side.
