We had a wonderful afternoon the family welcomed us in despite arriving very early! We thoroughly enjoyed learning to cook Cape Malay Cuisine and also learnt the history of the Bo Kaap area and Cape Town. The food was delicious, we sat and ate together at the dining room table after cooking 3 dishes. Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you Jasmina and family.
