Perched on the slopes of Signal Hill, overlooking Table Bay, the Bo-Kaap is as idiosyncratically ‘Cape’ as the spicy scents and flavours that waft downhill from its eccentrically colourful cobbled streets. Our walk through the historic Malay quarter of Cape Town takes us through its nooks and crannies, its legends and secrets, as we hunt for the sources of those wonderful aromas and discover the distinctive cuisine of the Cape Malay community. It’s “hands-on” during the informal cooking workshop which follows in a Bo-Kaap family home. We learn how to mix Masala, fold Samoosas, and how to balance the delicate flavours of a Cape Malay curry. Over a glass of faloodah (a traditional, lightly rose-scented milk drink) our hostess and cooking instructor will tell you more about the ways in which food, history and religion are interwoven in the Bo-Kaap culture. Then it’s time to sit back, relax, and appreciate your handwork as you dig into a full course traditional Malay Meal.

We made wonderful curry in a lovely home environment. Such a warm experience. Spice market. Samosas, just delicious. Great way to get to know local people and foods without an expensive restaurant. Would definitely do it again and recommend it to anyone interested in food.

Andulela can be contacted via their website The cost depends on the number of guests - there is a minimum charge. Andulela can advise you. We paid R1500 each for 2 people because the group was small.
