African Relish

African Relishis a new and exciting tourism product for culinary travellers and food lovers looking for something out of the ordinary while visiting South Africa. With the surge in culinary tourism around the world, we believe that South Africa, with all it has to offer in the realm of food culture and mystical tradition around cuisine, should also provide an authenticAfrican culinary experience for the international market. Our accommodation is part of African Relish recreational cooking school.Book a cooking class or eat at our weekend restaurant while you are in town.

African Relish is established in Prince Albert, a historical and beautiful town on the threshold of the Great Karoo in the Western Cape. The Karoo is one of the worlds most remarkable and idiosyncratic regions famed for its atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. Visitors can rest, relax, refresh and recharge, while exploring and enjoying the beauty, and indulging a need for unusual entertainment.

African Relish was born of our own fascination with and passion for food. We will be offering customised culinary vacations involving three to six day, hands-on interactive cooking and cultural experiences with our executive chef, other invited celebrity chefs and experts from around South Africa. We will also draw on the rich and diverse local knowledge which is founded on hundreds of years of food traditions. Our packages will include a varied and exciting programme of cultural and leisure activities in and around Prince Albert. The entire area is steeped in history and is one of the most significant archaeological and paleontological regions in the world. Guests will take part in fruit picking and drying, cheese making, bread baking and all that is fun and fascinating in the culinary experience.

Accommodation is provided in our own and select Prince Albert guesthouses that offer luxury bedrooms, air-conditioning, heating and spacious garden privacy. Our accommodation consists of handpicked and renovated cottages in this charming Karoo town. With traditional irrigation canals running along the streets, this combination of well-appointed and luxurious living space coupled with the sound of trickling water is a haven in which to unwind.

  • "Deurdrift Cottages"

    26 December 2013

    "We had a lovely stay. Cottages beautifully decorated. Only thing missing was a small pool maybe, although 2 baths in the garden made up for that. Donovan was an excellent host!"

  • "A little gem"

    "We stayed in Deurdrift 2 on the 28/12/2012. The cottage was well equipped and extremely comfortable. It was like staying in a small art gallery. It is within close walking distance to the town up a quiet side street. At least a 2-night stay is essential to properly experience the beautiful town of Prince Albert."
