What nicer than aromas of quality loaves baking, wafting through an inviting deli and bakery on one of the most beautiful old farms in the winelands? If you haven't visited Boschendal recently, you are in for a few pleasant surprises as much has happened in the way of development, restoration and new attractions at this historic Drakenstein destination.
Now Executive chef Christian Campbell is presenting a bread-making workshop weekend where students will get stuck in after lunch on Saturday with quick and easy breads, enjoy wine tasting and dinner before heading to their luxuriously equipped cottage overnight. After Sunday morning breakfast a second baking session will see visitors tackle more sophisticated breads, before finishing with Sunday lunch and heading home with a laden goody bag.
The inclusive cost of the weekend is R1 172 a head sharing or R1 660 single.
