South Africa is a culturally diverse country having 11 official languages and numerous religions and cultures. One of the predominant cultures is that of the Cape Malay people. Brought over as slaves, political prisoners or exiles from the Dutch East Indies.
Their main employment was that of cooks and house servants. The foods that the Cape Malays cooked had an Indian and Asian influence with a slight twist. Their recipes haver been passed down from generation to generation: curries, samosas and pies all created to suit the Malay palate. Fresh spices are preferred giving all the foods a full body aroma and taste.
