About the Episode
This week’s episode explores Afrikaans culture and cuisine, as Hayden learns the secrets of traditional dishes like mosbolletjies and potbrood, and pays a visit to the Taal Monument. There’s plenty of time for adventure too, with an epic zorbing session through Stellenbosch’s vineyards capping off an action-packed episode.
The vineyard-laden town of Stellenbosch is one of the most picturesque and historically rich in the country. South Africa’s second oldest town is a tranquil warren of oak-lined streets, surrounded by many of the country’s most renowned wine farms. Stellenbosch is, at its heart, an educational centre, and its eponymous university draws learners from across the globe. Home to 3 of South Africa’s Top 10 restaurants, it’s also a bona-fide foodie hotspot and one of the country’s fresh produce capitals.
