South AfricaCooking Vacations, Foodie Tours, Culinary Getaways

Along with exciting, adventurous safaris and the wide diversity of cultures throughout South Africa, visitors will be pleased with the great variety of foods and cuisine. South African cuisine reflects influences from the traditions of the Zulus, the Afrikaner and British cooking styles, and indigenous cooking techniques brought from the Netherlands, Java, Portugal, Malaysia, and India, as well as utilizing native plant bulbs, roots, nuts and leaves. Meat preparation ranges from African style barbecue known as braai to the popular technique of preservation called biltong. Creative and imaginative, South African cooking techniques blend the curries and hot peppers of India and southeast Asia into tasty dishes that pop with flavor and color. From Afrikaner lamb stew called potjiekos to Dutch fried milk tarts, from bunny chow to bobotie to smoked snoek fish, individuals on a cooking vacation in South Africa will never forget the tastes, flavors, and aromas unique to the South African nation.
