Very exciting and very delicious and so much fun! The first one happens on

Friday the 27th of March at 7pm

#diningrooms with Roushanna Gray

the Facebook event page explains all:

#Diningrooms is about bringing exciting food into your home and linking the interesting — chefs, purveyors, producers — with the interested.



Roushanna Gray, an indigenous edibles expert and an innovative cook, will be presenting a four course dinner inspired by veld and sea.

Roushanna has been experimenting in the kitchen with Cape Point Fynbos since she moved, nearly a decade ago, to the Good Hope Gardens Nurserywhere she teaches adults and children about foraging, propagating, and cooking with indigenous edible plants. Her culinary style draws on her own eclectic Cape Malay, Jewish and Christian background while her palate adapts to the seasonal availability of edible flora.

The supper will be hosted by Professors Jeremy Midgley and Nicci Illing of UCT’s Biological Sciences Department at their home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and nestled at the foot of the Apostles (and only ten minutes from the City Bowl, mind!).

Pledges for the supper are R295 per person. Expect an exciting four course menu and a Fynbos tipple, two immensely knowledgable hosts and a small cohort of interested diners enjoying a beautiful location.

Hope to see you there!
