While cultural tours through the world wide web may provide you with a plethora of fantastic facts, it lacks the real world feel of delicious aromas, the feel of fresh air and the occasional tour-taker chit-chat between fellow khaki-pant wearers. Take a culture-rich and exciting tour with today’ Groupon: The Bo-Kaap Cooking Tour experience including traditional cooking lesson, walking tour and lunch or dinner with a cool-drink for R275.
Culture-craving explorers take pleasure in an adventurous romp into one of Cape Town’s historical hot spots in the vibrant Bo-Kaap district. As colourful as a paint swatch, not only is Bo Kaap rich in culture and history, but the location radiates an old-world charm and delicious epicurean aromas pleasing to the belly and your nose-bunkers. From the architecture and the people to the culture and the food, Groupon grippers will be led on a gastronomic adventure through the cobble stone streets of a unique and lively inner city area.Enjoy a walking tour with knowledgeable Bo-Kaap-ers as your guides learning about the architecture and history of the sloping suburb. Visit the master of spice shops, Atlas Spices, and take in the delicious aromas while finding out about the best dishes to blend them into. After the morning or afternoon in the streets, sit down and take to the kitchen with the hands-on cooking workshop to discover the secrets of mixing masala spice and make traditional Malay favourites such as chilli bites, rotis and sambals. Groupies will also get to try their hand at folding samosas, and making koeksisters, Cape Malay Curry and cardamom tea. After the intense food workshop, enjoy the meal prepared, served with sambals and a cold drink.
