Traditional South African Baking Class

South Africa has a rich landscape of flavours, cuisines and cultural influences. During the course of this half day workshop you’ll learn about the flavours and spices that have made a mark on South African baking today.

You’ll make three distinct sweet bakes, from the well known Koeksisters, an enriched dough that’s fried and steeped in syrup and a typical South African melktart. Much like a British custard tart, the melktert is a popular pastry filled with a chilled and cinnamon dusted traditional custard. Finally, we’ll be creating Hertzoggies, a creative take on a jam tart, filled with apricot preserve and finished with a coconut meringue topping. 

This workshop is suitable for all levels of experience and runs for 3 hours.
