What you'll do

Allow me to virtually welcome you into my home nestled on the slopes of Cape Towns's iconic Table Mountain. Beautiful Bo-Kaap is known for its vibrant and colorful homes, culture, people, and history. Immerse yourself in my happy place—my warm, colorful kitchen—and dive straight into my wonderful world of spices and delicious Cape Malay cuisine. Malay cuisine is known for its sweet, sour, fruity, and aromatic flavors with spices like cinnamon, saffron, aniseed, and tamarind.
I'll unlock the mystery of spices and teach you how to create your own flavorful mixes using combinations handed down to me by my late grandmother.I'll take you step-by-step through my foolproof method of cooking a delicious Malay curry paste. Together, we'll use this paste to cook a delicious vegetarian curry of lentils, beans, or vegetables. We'll also cook an aromatic savory rice to accompany your curry and a simple but tasty sambal or side salad. We'll end the lesson by preparing a warm elixir that celebrates the magical, healing properties of spices. We'll enjoy this drink while I share a few shortcuts and tips on how to create a variety of dishes by making small adaptations to your basic curry.
This Experience is great for team building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message...

I’m a third-generation Malay cook who hosts three other Cooking Experiences on Airbnb. I’m passionate about my heritage and started learning how to cook Malay cuisine at the tender age of 9 in my grandparents’ kitchen. As a young adult, I was fortunate to work in the tourism industry and travel the globe for 14 years. Traveling helped me explore my love of food and people in a way that was educational, fun, and engaging. I grew as a home cook with every destination I visited. I spent my time eating my way through flavorful street food, making new friends, and learning about different cultures, religions, and traditions. If you’re curious about my other experiences, you can read reviews here: https://www.airbnb.com/users/show/150093714

Fayruza is a gem. I can’t highly recommend her experience enough. She is so knowledgeable, patient, and in love with food and teaching. I always learn something every single time I took the experience with her. The food came out super delicious (and healthy). Love her!
