Private Cooking Class and Meal in Local Wynberg Cape Town Home

Join Richard and Gillian, chefs who run their own restaurants, for a private 3-hour cooking lesson and a meal with wine in their lovely home. They will introduce you to South African home-cooking, local wines and will share their infectious love of their home country with you. You may learn how to make prawn and nectarine salad and how to braai delicious rump steak or cook chicken breasts in tomato sauce with a spinach and feta stuffing and a lemon meringue. You can expect your cooking class to last for 1-2 hours. Food is the center of this home, with large indoor and outdoor dining tables, a kitchen, and braai. Like most South Africans, cooking on the braai is the couple's favorite meal and social activity. Braai is cooking on a fire/barbequing which is very popular and a significant part of the culture in South Africa. Gillian and Richard have a fantastic outdoor braai where they often host.

Richard and Gillian are chefs and restaurant owners who believe in eating and treating your body well so they only use the best ingredients to prepare a meal. Richard is a home winemaker very knowledgeable about local wines. Food is the center of their home, with large indoor and outdoor dining tables, a kitchen, and braai. Like most South Africans, cooking on the braai is the couple's favorite meal and social activity.

There are multitudes of different foods that are traditional to South Africa’s diverse culture (predominately Cape Malay, Afrikaans, English, and African) from their Dutch, British, Indian and Malaysian influences. Your South African meal will include dishes from a variety of these traditions, including foods like bredie (stew), curry, roasts including lots of braai, plus salads and side dishes. Your meal will end with traditional desserts such as malva tart (sweet pudding), lemon meringue or koeksisters (a syrup-coated twisted or braided doughnut). 

Please note: This is not a professional cooking class, rather an experience to visit an authentic, local home and meet a local family and share the culture and cuisine together. Richard and Gillian have a pet dog.
