About
Join Richard and Gillian, chefs who run their own restaurants, for a private 3-hour cooking lesson and a meal with wine in their lovely home. They will introduce you to South African home-cooking, local wines and will share their infectious love of their home country with you. You may learn how to make prawn and nectarine salad and how to braai delicious rump steak or cook chicken breasts in tomato sauce with a spinach and feta stuffing and a lemon meringue. You can expect your cooking class to last for 1-2 hours. Food is the center of this home, with large indoor and outdoor dining tables, a kitchen, and braai. Like most South Africans, cooking on the braai is the couple's favorite meal and social activity. Braai is cooking on a fire/barbequing which is very popular and a significant part of the culture in South Africa. Gillian and Richard have a fantastic outdoor braai where they often host.

What to expect
  • Join Richard and Gillian in their kitchen for a cooking demonstration and learn how to make 2-3 South African dishes. You may learn how to make prawn and nectarine salad and how to braai delicious rump steak or cook chicken breasts in tomato sauce with a spinach and feta stuffing, or a lemon meringue for dessert. You can expect your cooking class to last for 1-2 hours before you sit down to eat. Richard and Gillian are chefs and restaurant owners who believe in eating and treating your body well so they only use the best ingredients to prepare a meal. Richard is a home winemaker very knowledgeable about local wines. Food is the center of their home, with large indoor and outdoor dining tables, a kitchen, and braai. Like most South Africans, cooking on the braai is the couple's favorite meal and social activity. There are multitudes of different foods that are traditional to South Africa’s diverse culture (predominately Cape Malay, Afrikaans, English, and African) from their Dutch, British, Indian and Malaysian influences. Your South African meal will include dishes from a variety of these traditions, including foods like bredie (stew), curry, roasts including lots of braai, plus salads and side dishes. Your meal will end with traditional desserts such as malva tart (sweet pudding), lemon meringue or koeksisters (a syrup-coated twisted or braided doughnut).  Please note: This is not a professional cooking class, rather an experience to visit an authentic, local home and meet a local family and share the culture and cuisine together. Richard and Gillian have a pet dog.

ABSOLUTE ABZOCKE UND NICHT VERTRAUENSWÜRDIG!!!
Nov 2017 • Friends
Hallo zusammen,

LEIDER MUSS ICH HIER ALLE INTERESSENTEN EINDRINGLICH VOR DIESEM EVENT WARNEN!

Es handelt sich um eine Abzocke, wo weder die beschriebene Tour statt findet noch in Kontakt getreten wird mit Interessenten/Anfragen, noch auf E-Mails reagiert wird.
Ich finde es sehr bedauerlich, dass weder Tripadvisor noch der Veranstalter es für nötig halten in Kontakt zu treten oder zumindest im Vorfeld eine Absage zu schicken.

Der Gipfel der Frechheit war dann die Tatsache, dass nach der Buchung, welche etwas mehr als 3 Wochen vor dem Termin angefragt wurde, eine entsprechende Bestätigung via Email kommen sollte. Leider vergebens. Eine Email mit Bestätigung oder Absage kam nie! Dennoch wurde fleißig das Geld abgebucht und kein weiteres Lebenszeichen von irgendeinem der Verantwortlichen von sich gegeben.
Selbst mehrmalige Kontaktaufnahme mit Tripadvisor wurde ignoriert und mit Schweigen gestraft - das Geld selbst nach mehrmaliger Aufforderung nicht zurück überwiesen.

Das zum Thema vertrauen im Netz und Verbraucherschutz... Transparenz ist ebenfalls überhaupt nicht vorhanden.

Jeder der sich diesen Dreck ersparen möchte sucht am besten privat bzw. vor Ort nach einer entsprechenden Möglichkeit und spart sich die Zeit auf Tripadvisor.

Ich hoffe inständig, dass ich vielen den Ärger, den ich hier habe, ersparen kann!

Dear Mr. Rueger, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave your review. We were shocked and disappointed to learn of your experience, and you can be assured we are doing everything possible to make this right - your experience is unacceptable and not the level of service we strive to provide. It looks like you booked the experience through a partner site Viator. We are not yet sure what happened with Viator, but it seems clear there was an issue with you not receiving any of Viator's email communication. The booking was all confirmed on our site and our hosts Richard and Gillian were disappointed too when you did not show up for the experience as they were looking forward to hosting you. Needless to say we have already contacted Viator and asked them to provide you a full refund immediately, and are looking in to this more deeply to understand what happened and why you did not receive your confirmation information from them. We are so sorry that you were not able to enjoy this experience and for the terrible customer experience you did have, I can only imagine how frustrating that must have been. Please accept my most sincere apologies. I hope we have the chance to serve you in the future and to make things right. Kind regards, Stephanie Traveling Spoon Founder and Owner
