All travelers must eat and drink. Those businesses that look after the food and beverage needs of visitors to a destination, has as much influence over the overall experience of a guest as those providing accommodation.
In Prince Albert we have this box ticked. Our visitors will not go home with memories of chain coffee and hamburgers. Oh, no. Memories of Prince Albert will include yearnings of rich flavors and textures presented in beautiful surroundings.
African Relish proves the point by bringing home yet another award!
The African Relish team is the winner in the 2018 FoodTrekking Awards for the category ‘Best Cooking School / Class’
