Last month, IES Abroad took us to Bo Kaap for a cooking class amid the famous colorful houses. We made samoosas, dhaltijies (Chilli bites), and the most incredible curry. Personally, I love to cook, but my scope of cooking abilities is limited. I am confident in my ability to make approximately five recipes, including cheesy pasta and grilled chicken, but am easily intimidated by recipes with more than six ingredients and complicated instructions. Because of this, I was excited to stretch my cooking comfort zone, and learn a little more about Bo Kaap while doing so.
