Cooking course & wine tasting

When you decide to go on a month long holiday back home there is always a long list of things you’d like to do, people you’d like to see and places you’d like to go.

I was arriving in Cape Town on the 1st June, two weeks ahead of Brad.  I was so excited knowing my Mom and Ryan were waiting for me at the airport, I couldn’t wait to see them. We decided we were going to stay in Stellenbosch, and had booked to go on a cooking course at Leopards Leap in Franchoek, where we would be taught to cook hearty winter meals.  This of course won’t come in handy in Dubai, but we could always turn the air con down and pretend it’s winter.  It was such a lovely outing, and the 4 hour course seemed to pass by far too quickly.  The food was so delicious, I even took a liking to the fish!  Each meal was paired with different wines, there was never an empty glass.  I highly recommend this cooking course and  suggest you book well in advance, as it is a really popular thing to do in the wine lands.

In-between shopping and visiting family I got to spend some time with friends in Stellenbosch.  We went to the Ernie Els wine farm to go wine tasting, another favourite when you in the winelands area.  This is such a beautiful farm, with exquisite views and we made good use of the golf t-box available from the terrace.

My first five days  went bye very quickly in Stellenbosch and it was time to make the 6 hour trek back to our farm in the Karoo, where I would stay until Brad arrived in Port Elizabeth on the 15th June.
