Get cooking – with a teacher or by yourself
Whether you are a foodie who entertain flamboyantly or a bit more cautious in the kitchen, Prince Albert has the kind of atmosphere that gets you cooking. You may settle for a braai with good Karoo lamb and a salad with what you pick up at the Saturday Markie or you could go all out and put together a banquet of local produce – think cheese, figs, olives, bread – hmmm.
A cooking course may be just the thing to inspire. You could do a quick half day course or indulge in a cooking retreat lasting several days.
Here we put together all the information you need to bring out the cook in you – we divided the information into categories for cooking courses, bakeries and places you can buy the local produce you want. We do not want you to find out at the end of your stay that you have missed some delectable tit bit just because you did not know about it!
Keep an eye on the special events calendar for additional cooking classes

The Prince Albert Olives orchards were established from 2005 according to international best practice with the Italian cultivars of Frantoio, Coratina, Don Carlo and FS17 forming the backbone of the plantings.
The harvested fruit is processed in a state of the art mill at our premises in Hope Street.
Fred Badenhorst was born and raised on Groot Constantia in the Cape. He and his son Hein continue a family farming tradition in the Prince Albert district of the Great Karoo.
Prince Albert is well known for its quality figs, pomegranates, grapes and other fruits. Fresh water, a dry, disease-free climate, ample summer heat and winter cold provide the ideal macro elements for fruit-growing.
The orchard is managed by Essie Esterhuizen and his team and the harvested fruit is processed in a state of the art mill.
The award winning oil is sold locally and abroad in the distinctive yellow tin.
The olive oil can be purchased at the factory in Hope Street during trading hours or at various establishments throughout town. The olive oil is also available at Woolworths and Yuppiechef.
