It was her grandmother who taught her to prepare simple delicious food, and this is when she discovered she was a “foodie”. 

The whole experience is colorful, fun and delicious. Choose between a hands-on Samosa Folding Class where you will have a tutorial and learn how to mix spices, and fold and fill samosas, or a Cape Malay Dessert Cooking Experience.
