The Secret Garden Feast photo story

In the beginning of October we held a magical dining experience in a unique stetting- right in the middle of our plant retail.

Transporting guests to a place of community, nature and kindred spirits, enjoying feasting and festivities, belly dancing and the Gypsy melody’s of fantastic Ottoman Slap.

Not to mention lots of organic wine and Buchu ale.

A huge thank you to Juliette de Combes for taking these beautiful photos.

The Secret Garden Feast

We invite you to come and experience this once-off pop-up event dedicated to sustainable cuisine that will tantalise all of your senses.

The meal will be created by the Forage Harvest Feast team, using fresh seasonal ingredients and locally produced products, transforming them into delicious foods.
Vegetables, herbs and wild foods will be picked and prepared on site that day from the Good Hope Gardens vegetable gardens. We will also be using indigenous edibles, seaweeds, floral foods and local artisan products.

Quality not quantity is to be observed and that means limited spaces! There will only be 50 seats available at the Secret Garden Feast so please book soon to avoid disappointment.

For your entertainment, you will be able to feast your ears and eyes on the five-piece Middle Eastern/Gypsy/Balkan fusion band, Ottoman Slap. Bringing you original compositions and traditional music with a twist – from Middle Eastern, Kletzmer, Andalusian, Romanian folk songs, and finally, to a mesmerising Tribal Fusion belly dancer to leave you enchanted!

The Secret Garden Feast will be held outdoors in the Indigenous plant nursery at Good Hope Gardens in Cape Point on Sunday the 12th of October at 4pm.

Tickets: R400 per person

Expect: edible center pieces, dancing, connection, community, real food and the unexpected.
