After the safari lodges, the Cape Winelands is the most popular destination on the African continent. There is good food and wine everywhere you look.

But there is very little if any chance to enjoy home-cooked traditional food, in the home of a local cook.

This Traditional Home-cooked Winelands Lunch experience makes that possible in the magnificent Dwars River Valley, lying between the towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

Take a break from the gourmet fare, and get in touch with indigenous narratives and history and heritage, over a delicious meal prepared from scratch in an intimate home restaurant.

Meet and dine with Sienna Charles, your host. Sienna runs Beker en Bord (Cup and Plate in English), a quirky tea garden and home restaurant in Kylemore, one of the four towns in the Dwars River Valley. This community activist, grandmother, wife and entrepreneur is a terrific cook and storyteller.

Enjoy home-baked breads such as roosterbrood (bread baked over coals) or lepelbrood (spoon bread), locally produced jams, traditional meals such as tomato bredie (stew) and bobotie, and desserts such as koesusters (an aniseed doughnut ball), milktart, or malva pudding.

A Traditional Home-cooked Winelands Lunch experience can be easily added to your Wine Route itinerary as a lunch alternative to a normal restaurant.
