Cooking with Fynbos at the Table Bay Hotel

Using fynbos in cooking has long been a favourite for top chefs in Cape Town with fynbos-inspired tasting menus on offer at a couple of hotels such as the Twelve Apostles.

However I really like this new idea from the Table Bay Hotel in the V&A Waterfront. They have decided to offer a cooking workshop for guests to show them how to cook creatively with fynbos ingredients.

The Table Bay Hotel

What is fynbos you might ask? Fynbos is the generic name given to South African indigenous plants found in the Cape Floral kingdom (basically the Western Cape). Using fynbos you can create uniquely South African dishes. The Table Bay hotel executive sous chef, Adrian Schreuder, leads guests on his fynbos picking jaunts. They return to the hotel and he shows them how to create one of his favourite dishes which they then all eat for lunch. The current cost is R650 per person and the workshop takes place in the mornings.
