We had a fantastic time with Zayed & his team, especially meeting the well known Zainie Misbach. We had a lovely time getting to know the heritage of the family and a little more about the history behind Bo Kaap with its beautiful colored homes. After the tour we went to the cooking tour at the residence of Mrs Zainie. You just feel the homely and warmth that radiates in her home. While learning to make some delicious Daltjies and Samoosas and don't forget the delightful aroma of making Traditional Cape Malay Chicken Curry. My team and I from Point B Guesthouse in Greenpoint enjoyed just about everything, what is so amazing is the family style sitdown while having your lunch. Would definitely recommend this to my guest.

Incredible. Perfect. Great experience from the moment we booked until we walked out the door –– full of amazing food. The cultural walking tour was educational and fun, getting to see the local stores. The cooking instruction was loving and interactive. Such an intimate experience being in the home of a cooking legend. Can't say enough!

We had a lovely morning and lunch on the tour. The history and the heritage of the area was very interesting. Then to the cooking! We made a range of items for lunch and the whole group got involved and hands on. Then we sat down to eat. Such a great way to spend a morning and learn about the traditions.

Now this I would highly recommend: a first rate tour with history and insight into Bo-kaap and its cultural and culinary heritage by Zayed, followed by an amazing cooking class of Cape Malay food by his wife Zoelfaa, and sister Munowarah! You learn all about the background and get to cook super tasty chicken curry, roti, dalchies and samosas. And then eat it of course! Oohh and that green chilly and coriander dip:-). The setting is intimate and really friendly in a true Bo-kaap home. Don’t leave Cape Town without participating in this unique event!
