Date Night in Cape Town

The spectacular city of Cape Town has been a trading hub for centuries, and its influences from many different countries have resulted in a fascinating cultural mix as well as some fantastic food! To begin our meal we’ve got samoosas, a familiar fried snack of Indian origin, served with blatjang, a spicy apricot chutney. Next up is a simple Cape Malay chicken and potato curry made with mother-in-law masala - a blend containing lots of chilli and nutmeg. Finally we’ve got pears poached in rooibos, a South African herbal tea, served with a lightly spiced whipped cream.
