30 March – 1 April 2018 | Karen Dudley
Karen Dudley has been in the food industry for over twenty years. In the nineties, she started a small catering company and soon made a name for herself amongst Capetonians with her hearty, innovative food. She opened the legendary restaurant, The Kitchen, in the early noughties when Woodstock was still more gritty outpost than edgy-artsy suburb, and it’s still going strong today with perennial menu favourites including her Love Sandwiches, “burglar” patties (Michelle Obama’s choice when she visited), roast honey-mustard sausages, lemon squares and world-peace brownies. And, thankfully for us, Karen happily shares the tips she’s spent years perfecting herself. This March, Karen will teach a cooking class at African Relish sharing her wealth of knowledge where you can immerse yourself in practicing and learning for an entire weekend! So, you love homely Mediterranean flavours and a robust cooking style? This is the course for you, for sure. In her trademark down-to earth, enthusiatic way, Karen will spend the weekend guiding you step by step through making various of her recipes, including brand new editions from her very latest cooking book. And of course the class is not just about learning and cooking, there will be a healthy amount of eating 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.
