African Relish – a cooking school in a foodie village called Prince Albert

This is a “must” include in a visit to South Africa by any foodies – yes – when you look at the map – it does appear that this little town is in the middle of nowhere – but look more closely and you will see that a visit works well with experiencing the Garden Route area at the same time.

The garden route is famous for it beauty, its mountains, its forests, its adrenaline activities – but to me as a foodie – it rocks for its oysters,  little characterful restaurants like Emily Moon and my favourite little spot – Ile de Pain – a little bakery in Plett where the Belgium husband bakes the breads and his local wife makes delicious creations from it!

Prince Albert is a small village that quite simply loves food!   There are all sorts of interesting characters, food products, fresh produce and to top it off – it has a wonderful cooking school called African Relish.  Click here to go to the African Relish website.  

Some upcoming courses to whet your appetite:

They have a great line up of visiting chefs and personalities who will be dazzling and delighting at African Relish over the next few months.

7 – 9 October & 14 – 16 October – Preeti Bardolia is our Karoo Spice Girl. She spices up things a bit with some Indian Fusion

Ps while in the village – make sure you find Lucas – he is producing some of the most delicious hams in the country – and his chilly sauce rocks!!  I must find out where to buy the sauce in Cape Town!
