It is said the only real way to get to know a place is through its food. With The Kitchen Collective cooking classes in Cape Town, prepare to embark on a culinary journey to explore not only the tastes of the Mother City, but the world.
What is The Kitchen Collective?
The Kitchen Collective is a collection of three food studios in and around Cape Town. Each space offers a series of events curated around food and includes interactive cooking experiences, Masterchef-style parties, food lectures and private events.
Each studio has a different atmosphere. The Kitchen Collective Food Studios in the city centre are professionally equipped kitchens with an industrial and minimalist feel. The Ginger and Lime studio in Fresnaye is based in a manor house boasting an outdoor terrace, while the Salt and Sage studio in Bantry Bay is modern and sleek with beautiful ocean views. Each cooking experience is tailored to the respective venue.
The interactive cooking classes comprise anything from charcuterie and bread-making workshops and sushi making to “Moroccan magic” and everything you need to know about cooking delicious plant-based meals.
We highly recommend the Cape Malay cooking experiences, as Cape Malay food is deeply connected to Cape Town’s culture and history From a dark history of colonialism and slavery, with people forced into labour from predominantly the Indian subcontinent, south-east Asia and Madagascar, the Cape Malay community was born.
Over centuries, food has become intrinsically linked to faith, freedom and culture. No trip to Cape Town would be complete without learning about this history through – among other delicacies – the delicious Cape Malay dishes and sweet treats.
Keep an eye on the interactive cooking class calendar to see what’s on offer, or get in touch with the team to organise a private event.
