Cape Malay Culinary Tour

This Cape Malay culinary tour is a great way to learn about Cape Town’s cultural diversity. A culinary walk through the historical heart of the Bo Kaap in Cape Town and doing some shopping in the local markets.

The focus is on learning about the Cape Malay community. Their South-east Asian heritage, culture, community and of course their food. You stop at a local spice store and a local butcher. Here you can chat with the locals and discover typical ingredients in Cape Malay food. You then head to a local family’s home where you participate in a hands-on fun-filled cooking session and demonstration which ends in eating a traditional Cape Malay lunch.
