CAPE TOWN FYNBOS EXPERIENCE
FYNBOS TASTING - 2 hours
A sensory exploration of South Africa's Fynbos culinary heritage with Giselle Courtney, creator of the Cape Town Fynbos Experience.
The unique botanical flavours of the Cape Floristic Region are extracted through the process of infusion using water, sugar, salt, oil, vinegar and alcohol to produce a series of herbal teas, cordials, culinary salts, vinaigrettes and digestives.
"Walking into the tasting room, one is hit by the fragrance of fresh fynbos - Rhino bush, Cancer bush, Buchu and Snow bush line the centre of the tasting table. Glass beakers filled with tea infusions such as local rooibos and honeybush, petri dishes topped with fresh stalks of Spekboom and fynbos salts are artfully arranged at individual place settings."
