A true South African culinary adventure.

Join us at African Relish for a culinary adventure of the senses. Nestled at the bottom of the Swartberg Pass, Prince Albert is home to the seasonal produce we highlight in the cooking courses.  We take you foraging in the veld and towns organic vegetable gardens or in our Tuk Tuk on a foodie tour.  Guests get to meet artisans and farmers and harvest ingredients for the cooking lessons.
