Cape Malay Cooking, Winelands and Kruger National Park
12 Nights – 12th to 24th February 2025
At the southern tip of Africa, overlooked by the famous Table Mountain, the fair city of Cape Town pulsates to the beat of diverse cultures: here Africa, Europe and the Far East have mingled for centuries to produce a rich culinary heritage.
South African cooking has been influenced over the centuries by the immigrants from Indonesia, India, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, France, Holland, Germany and the United Kingdom just to mention a few. We at le Calabash believe it is the comfort food capital of the world. We believe the West is waking up to a gastronomic phenomenon about to happen. It is called Cape Malay Cooking.
South Africa is also home to New World wines as the first vineyards were planted here in the late 1600s and today South Africa produces some of the world’s finest wines and is the biggest grower of the Chenin grape. South Africa is also one of the world’s leading fruit and nut exporters.
South Africa now boasts one of the world’s most exciting culinary scenes as it is one of the fastest growing tourist destinations with the New York Times naming Cape Town as the No 1 City to visit in 2016 and South Africa boasting two of the Best Restaurants in the San Pellegrino 100 list.
Some of the top chefs in the world have entered the market here as have luxury hotel groups. Le Calabash Cooking School South Africa is set on the award-winning Wine Estate of Zevenwacht on the outskirts of Stellenbosch and which overlooks the Cape Peninsula as well as Table Mountain.
Here you can enjoy being right at the centre of the vineyards and get a feel and experience how a wine farm operates and be exposed to the wine cellars and how award winning wines are made.
The school is close to all the Capes Main Gastronomic and Cultural sites which are shared with all who visit and experience this Culinary Adventure.
