This is your invitation to an off-the-beaten-path tour through downtown Cape Town to discover its hidden African food gems — a window, which allows you to explore our diverse Mother City from a unique perspective. This tour focuses on community kitchens and restaurants, which showcases the role of food in different African communities across the diaspora.
In roughly 3 hours, we showcase how food has the power to hold communities together as we guide you through Cape Town’s best hidden African kitchens and restaurants. Let us take you on a culinary journey all the way from South Africa up to Mali, sho’t left to Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa, and share insights about the incredibly diverse and complex traditions of Somali food culture and the fragrant spices used in African countries that border the Red Sea. Share some fresh Injera, steaming soft pap, and floral cafe touba with us, while listening to stories about food and community from East to West and South Africa.
