From generation to generation the recipes were passed down from mother to daughter, and Faeeza is ready to take you all deep into the Malay tradition by showing you how to produce some of the most traditional and yet succulent dishes. This 45 minutes tour, which depending on questions asked may last a little longer, is a complete dive into a culture that wants to be known by the world.

Very good intro into Cape Malay food, and found it very interesting. Its not as difficult as a Trinidad Paratha Roti so to give it a go at home

Faeeza is phenomenal. I visited her website and Atlas Spice Co. for recipes and spices she uses. Her story is there as well as her famous guests. I can't wait for another tour visit here.
