About
Join Richard and Gillian, chefs who believe in eating and treating your body well and using the best ingredients to cook, for a private home-cooked meal and local wine! Food is the center of this home, with large indoor and outdoor dining tables, a kitchen and a fantastic outdoor braai where they often host. Like most South Africans, braaiing (barbecuing) is the couple's favorite social activity. Richard and Gillian's menus include different foods that are traditional to South Africa’s diverse culture - predominately Cape Malay, Afrikaans, English, and African. Your meal may include traditional bredie (stew), curry, roasts including lots of braai (bbq) plus salads, and will end with traditional desserts such as malva tart (sweet pudding), lemon meringue or koeksisters (a syrup-coated twisted or braided doughnut). Get local tips and recommendations in addition to having a personal culinary and cultural experience with this fun couple in their lovely home.

Apr 2019 • Family
Jo, Richard and their daughter treated our family to a warm, intimate evening filled with great food, wonderful South African wines pulled from the cellar beneath the kitchen floor and loads of stories, old and new about their decades of living in Cape Town.

When they learned upon our arrival that my daughter-in-law had numerous food allergies, Jo went to her freezer, pulled out GF pasta and turned it into a delicious entree without missing a beat in the conversation.

It was a delightful surprise to talk with their daughter, who is at the tail end of her high school experience, an experience which is radically different than what my kids had growing up in Chicago. We had never considered the tight security under which Cape Town teens need to live to be safe. It was fascinating to learn about her life.

I wish I could tell you the names of the traditional dishes that Richard and Jo cooked for us, but I don't recall them. What I do recall is that everything was delicious and plentiful.

It was a memorable dinner in a two week trip that was filled with great dinners.
