Founded by food-and-travel enthusiasts Lisa and Philip Key, African Relish is a Prince Albert-based recreational cooking school for South African cuisine taught by resident chef, Alexa Wiehahn.
They offer themed, half or full-day courses, such as “Karoo Classics” or “Vegetarian”, which are easy to book at short notice, as well as scheduled weekend courses with specially-invited chefs, such as Nina Timm and Chris Erasmus. These longer culinary experiences are combined with special-interest activities, including the popular cycle tour or olive and cheese tasting.
African Relish also offers a popular foodie tour in town and surrounds in a Tuk Tuk. The tour includes a cooking demo and lunch.
Whether it’s as a stand-alone destination or part of an extended foodie tour, African Relish is the place to experience local food. They also offer luxury accommodation, serve sit-down meals at the Chef's Café and offer fresh produce to take home at their in-house deli.
For those wanting to test what they have learned in their own kitchen, African Relish has published their own cookbook, filled with tried-and-tested Karoo recipes collected over a decade in the African Relish kitchen.
