20 – 22 October 2017 | Theresa de Vries
Theresa de Vries, runner up winner of the KykNET TV reality cooking show, Kokkedoor Series 1 and country-wide acknowledged as South Africa’s pasty queen, has turned the exact science of pastry making into an art form. And, thankfully for us, Theresa happily shares the tips she’s spent years perfecting herself. This October, Theresa will teach a masterclass in pastry at African Relish where you can immerse yourself in practicing and learning this skill for an entire weekend! So, you’ve followed that puff pastry recipe word for word but it emerges from the oven un-puffed and rather sad? This is the course for you, for sure. If your level of pastry making isn’t quite that of a Kokkedoor contestant yet, Theresa is there to help. All done the easy way, of course. In her trademark down-to earth, friendly way, she’ll spend the weekend guiding you step by step through making the kind of pastry every baker dreams about. The masterclass includes making rough puff and flaky pastry, shortcrust (sweet and savoury), hot water pastry and strudel and phyllo pastry in different variations. And eating it too. Obviously!

Prince Albert really is the little village that could: drop-dead gorgeous scenery, serenity aplenty, and a foodie community that knows how to make the most of the fantastic produce around them. African Relish Cooking school is at the core of this culinary ’hood. Opened by Lisa and Philip Key over 10 years ago, the school has become a famous retreat for folks wanting to get a break away from it all and get down to the fun and therapeutic business of cooking and eating.
Under the guidance of new resident chef, Camilla Comins, the school offers a host of courses, but some of the undisputed favourites are the various visiting chef masterclasses that takes place during the course of the year. African Relish invites experts in their respective fields to conduct a masterclass – perfect for those who want enough time to really immerse themselves and master a new skill, be it meat-curing, baking or cooking.
The class runs over an entire weekend leaving enough time to also explore, or should we say eatsplore, Prince Albert at your own pace. And, as the Karoo’s larder, Prince Albert has a lot of amazing local produce to discover – think Karoo lamb, venison, fresh figs, raw-milk cheese and cold-pressed olive oil – enough for the most epic feast.
