Taste of Africa
This weekend we drove two hours to get to a charming placed called Taste of Africa —
Hidden in an out-of-the-way farm.
Apart from a shop and a café, the main experience here
Is cooking food together with others over outdoor fires
In true South African tradition.
I was assigned to cook the main meal – a Cape Malay curry – for us vegetarians.
The food is cooked in cast-iron pots called potjie.
Luckily, it was impossible to burn the food (my speciality)
And the curry was delicious. (Yes, I’m sure you’re as surprised as I was!)
I did see a sign that would be very appropriate in my own kitchen, however!
The food was delicious – as was the company –
And we enjoyed it under a canopy of clouds, rain
And dancing figures.
It was a great way to meet new friends
And enrich the South African heritage of the kids.
Just had to throw in one of my favourite photographs of the anklebiters (taken a couple of years ago)…
