      Exceptional Cooking Class
      We enjoyed our cooking class very much. There was a true "family" feeling as we shared the experience of cooking and sharing a meal. The hosts were knowledgeable about the history of African food and we learned a lot. They were gracious and accommodating at all times. We would highly recommend this activity.

    We went as a group from work to learn about African cooking - and it was a great experience.
    We had people from all over Europe, Africa and America join us, who were all different levels of cooking ability and there was something for everyone!
    The lesson was fun, but still informative! We found out about the origin of different foods, tried all different starters and main course - no one left hungry!
    We worked together to learn different dishes and felt right at home. The team were welcoming, friendly and lots of fun.
    I would recommend anyone to go here and either try some amazing food or join the African cooking class to learn for themselves!
    Thanks for a great time!

    I can't rave enough about this cooking experience! Not only was the meal AMAZING, Caleb and Florence were informative and most of all, lovely!! It was a full evening with lots of laughter, great company, lots of information on African cuisine and memories made. Rosa and (oh my goodness, I am so sorry and embarassed that I forgot the other woman's name) were a delight. I highly recommend this experience as it was hands down the best and most personal cooking class I have ever taken and I take them each time I go to another country. Thank you, Florence and Caleb and team! You pushed me out of my typical comfort zone and I am so happy for that. Cheers from your friends from Canada! May you know, Caleb, that Florence is the only peanut butter maker you need for this lifetime. xoxoxo Leah and Mark Silver

    This was an amazing experience delivered by an African Family! They were very friendly and knowledgeable, gave us a bit of history about the African food and how it originated. They made everyone feel at home. We learned about new spices and ingredients, and got to try delicious dishes that we had never tasted before. It was so much fun, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to explore African cuisine.

    This experience has been one of the best cooking class/food tours we have had and I have experienced many all over the world, and this hands down has been one of the best. We not only learned to cook and try different dishes but we also talked about the origins of the foods we prepared and how they came to be. Everything was delicious even the termites and caterpillars. Mrs Florence and her Husband were lovely host and passionate about what they do, very informative and organized. The entire team was amazing. A must do if you're ever in Cape Town.

    I really loved the cooking experience. Not only was it fun and incredibly tasty, we learned a lot about the local food culture and got to experience and try things we would have never gotten to try otherwise.

    The team was incredibly friendly, you could really tell they do this with all their heart. I definitely recommend everyone to go and try it!

    I enjoyed a lot this course, it was a very good introduction to African cuisine for me, the ambiance feels very family, and the explanations during the course were on point. The result was an amazing dinner that we ate all together around the table when we finished cooking. My favorite dish was the chakalaka !!

    So many good things about this cooking class: great education on african food, lovely hosts, tasty food, great hands-on experience. The hosts were so sweet with our kids and really got them involved. They were very kind and sent lots of photos and videos of our experience which allowed us to enjoy cooking and not worry about taking pictures.
