Regarded as South Africa’s culinary capital, visitors can once again look forward to reawakening their taste sensations as the award-winning Franschhoek Wine Valley prepares for the annual Cook Franschhoek. The interactive hands on demonstration kitchens, presented by some of the Valley’s highly acclaimed chefs and winemakers, takes place over the weekend of 13, 14 and 15 June.
The demonstrations, which include a beautifully prepared and paired meal, will take place throughout the weekend, allowing guests the opportunity to not only interact with the chefs and winemakers but also master the art of intricate dishes. These include bread making, charcuterie, handmade chocolates and so much more. With the focus on exclusivity, each demonstration will range from 8 to 30 people, and costs will differ by establishment.
Make a weekend of your experience and book into one of Franschhoek’s splendid accommodation establishments, ranging from the finest bed and breakfasts, to luxurious boutique hotels, all nestled in a picturesque and safe environment. This should also afford you ample time for a leisurely stroll down the main road, uncovering world-class shops and boutiques, allowing for an intimate and relaxed shopping expedition.
