“A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine.”

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, ‘The Physiology of Taste’ (1825) 

Regarded as South Africa’s culinary capital, visitors can once again look forward to reawakening their taste sensations as the award-winning FranschhoekWineValley prepares for the annual Cook Franschhoek. The interactive hands on demonstration kitchens, presented by some of the Valley’s highly acclaimed chefs and winemakers, takes place over the weekend of 14, 15 and 16 June. 

The demonstrations will take place throughout the weekend, allowing guests the opportunity to not only interact with the chefs and winemakers but also master the art of intricate dishes.  With the focus on exclusivity, each demonstration will range from 8 to 30 people, and costs will differ by establishment. This year visitors can choose to attend demonstrations offering a beautifully prepared and paired meal and wine as part of the offering, or simply a stand-alone demonstration. This allows visitors the opportunity to attend more than one demonstration during the course of the weekend, ensuring a memorable experience. 

Booking for all demonstrations is essential and can be done via

This should also afford you ample time for a leisurely stroll down the main road, uncovering world-class shops and boutiques, allowing for an intimate and relaxed shopping expedition.
