Spier Secret Dinner

Hosted on 20 September 2015

Roushanna lives and works at the Good Hope Gardens Nursery in Cape Point. She teaches adults and children about indigenous edible foods and caters for pop-up events. Having been brought up with an eclectic mix of Cape Malay cooking, Jewish and Christian traditional feasts, and Steiner school harvest festivals, she has an ever-growing passion and love for food. Inspired by the local edible indigenous plant availability, she has been experimenting with the exciting flavours and diversity of Fynbos for the past eight years. The wide range of  delicious and nutritious culinary offerings from the beautiful inter-tidal rock pools along our coastline also play a major role in her cooking and courses.

Costs R400 per person. Only 12 ‘seats’ are available so book in advance to avoid disappointment.
