The Bo-Kaap Cooking Tour

Cape Town, Western Cape
Food + Shop 

Take a Malay cooking class when next visiting Cape Town. The beautiful pastel shades of the traditional houses that line the streets of Bo-Kaap (in the old Malay Quarter) are the perfect backdrop to a culinary adventure. Walking spice tours also form part of the offering for those who love to experience local fare and flavours.

The delightful Noon Gun Tea Room in Longmarket Street serves up the best denningvleis in town, as well as other delicious Cape Malay dishes. If you are a hands-on type of person, then book a few cooking classes with Auntie Zainie, a larger-than-life character who offers Malay culinary courses from her home. She’ll also take you on a walking tour of Bo-Kaap to buy spices and see the historical sites and kramats.

There are numerous operators doing walking tours of the Bo-Kaap, so don’t miss out on this truly South African cultural experience.
