Language Excursion: Food and Cuisine

Author: · September 5. 2013 · Language Excursions

This week we had a beautiful language excursion about food.

We started the week at BoKaap  at Na-Iema, where the students could taste lovely Cape Malay cuisine. The Malay slaves imported to the Cape by the Dutch East India company in 1658, came from Indonesia, Malaysia and Madagascar. Their ability to adapt their recipes to locally available ingredients soon became apparent and their cooking talents, using the aromatic spices from the Far East, greatly enhanced the local settler cuisine. This was an important development in South African food history.

We went to the township which is called Langa to visit Nomzamo chisa nyama. Langa is the oldest of such townships in Cape Town and was the location of much resistance to Apartheid. We tasted the isiXhosa Food, which is mostly made up of starch/carbohydrates.

At to end this amazing week we went to Honest Chocolate to make our own healthy chocolate.
