Overview

African Relish is a cooking school based in Prince Albert in the Karoo in South Africa. It is approximately 370 kilometers from Cape Town and near to Oudshoorn. We run a cooking school in this small town that has an abundance of produce and is famous for its lamb production. Courses are held on a daily basis or over weekends. Some of the weekend courses are themed (charcuterie, breadmaking, tapas etc.) and often have visiting chefs. Daily courses are held on request in either half or full day format. Travellers either plan ahead and book accordingly or visit us on arrival to see what might be happening or what we can arrange at short notice. We also use the facility for events and have had many happy couples married on the premises. We like to encourage adding a foodie emphasis to what they have planned and this has proved to be great added value. Team building around a cooking theme has also proved very popular with participants running barbecue / braai or "potjie" competitions. It is a beautiful venue which surprises and built specifically to enhance a great culinary experience.

We stayed in Akkedis, accommodating 4 guests. We loved the personal touches, fresh flowers, the wall heaters switched on before our arrival on a cold winters afternoon. A very comfortable and well stocked unit with good wifi signal.
