What you'll do

You'll meet up with your local guide and explore the neighbourhood of Imizamo Yethu, Hout Bay. You'll pop into market 'Spaza' shops and Fruit and Veg stalls, learning about the day to day community life along the way. You'll then take your newly purchased ingredients to your cooking lesson in a community soup kitchen where you'll get to make your own uniquely South African dish! We call it Pap and Chckalaka. A modern twist to a traditional dish! Vegetarian, Vegan, and Gluten-Free Friendly!
