The tastes of
South Africa

From secret supper clubs to experimental fine dining, this gourmet galivant surpasses the stereotypes, seeking out the freshest flavours in South Africa’s most fertile pockets.

South Africa’s cuisine is as smoking hot as its world-famous braai, but its best bits are beyond the barbecue-and-biltong clichés. Cape Town comes through with a new generation of restaurateurs brining a renewed respect for native flavours and recipes passed down for generations, and new dining concepts like at Crofter’s Kitchen where a chef-to-the-stars prepares lunch in front of the table.

Over in the Cape Winelands, the vineyards beckon with tours and tastings galore. While onward to the aptly named Whale Coast, the ocean is the star of the show. Infusing its coastal breeze and unique terroir into the pinot noir that can be savoured in a Boma within the ancient Milkwood Forest.
