Cape Town - Malay Cooking Classes
Gamidah Jacobs offers Cape Malay cooking classes to interested locals and foreigners in her home in the colourful 'Malay quarter' of Cape Town. Read here in our cooking class review about the excitement and fun preparing and eating traditional Cape Malay Food in an authentic family home in beautiful Bo-Kaap.
At Gamidah's class, you will learn to make really simple to make and very delicious Cape Malay food which the local Cape Malay enjoy at home every day. Hence the name of her business Lekka Kombuis, which means as much as delicious homemade food. While Gamidah was telling us many stories about her cultural upbringing and the traditional fast for Muslims at Ramadan, we were busy rolling our rotis, folding up delicate samoosas and watching our hostess creating a very tasty chicken curry with lots of fragrant spices. What an amazing smell! The hostess/chef ever so patiently showed us some of the tricks to roll the perfect roti and fold a samosa without spreading the filling all across the table.
