“Food for us comes from our relatives, whether they have wings or fins or roots. That is how we consider food. Food has a culture. It has a history. It has a story. It has relationships.” – Winona LaDuke
It is with this in mind that we embrace the historical development of the different food types throughout the countries of southern Africa. The initial local culture and the influx of European influences, as well as the movement across borders of many different ethnic groups has shaped a fusion of cultural flavours, bringing with it the culinary experiences shared by so many at the dinner table.
Good food plays an integral part in the overall satisfaction and enjoyment of a holiday. For some it is often the highlight of a holiday, for others it is the whole point!
