I have been getting into my cooking classes recently. I think it's a lovely thing to do as part of travelling, to learn a bit about another countries food and culture. I searched to see if there were any in South Africa and found The Bo-Kaap Cooking Tour in Cape Town. It was brilliant. We started walking the colourful cobbled streets of the Bo-Kaap with a mini tour and stopped in one of the little shops to have a look at some of the ingredients we'd be cooking with and then headed to Zainie's lovely house. There was a group of about 8 of us and we all mucked in. We learned about the different Cape Malay spiced including 'mother-in-law' and 'father-in-law', ('mother-in-law' being a bit spicier) and learned to mix our own masala spice. And then we cooked dhaltjies (chilli bites), samoosas, rotis and Cape Malay chicken curry, all of which we got to enjoy afterwards. If you are in the area and want to learn a bit more about South African food and cooking, I would definitely recommend it.
