Testimonials

  • Warren Joubert

    “I attended the wedding of Sarah and Katye at African Relish this past weekend and just wanted to say it was exceptional. The food was exquisite. From the canapés to the mains to the desserts. Please pass on my compliments to your entire kitchen staff for the tremendous culinary experience they provided. I don’t have sufficient superlatives to explain how much I enjoyed it.”

    African Relish provided the most delicious canapés after our wedding ceremony, and a perfect Karoo dinner at the reception in the Drie Riviere barn. They were also pretty cool wedding planners!”

    Just a quick note to say that I really enjoyed the weekend. The charcuterie course was brilliant and the meals were outstanding.  The “Prince Albert” onion soup was a real standout, maybe that is incorrect, every morsel was standout, even the nuts.  Well done to you both on a brilliant Charcuterie course. Hopefully I will be back some day not too far in the future. Richard, I will wait patiently until my bacon and chorizo is ready and will visit you at work if that is ok.   BRILLIANT!!!!!!
