Escape the dreary Winelands winter and join master gardener, Gundula Deutschländer, as we explore the warming winter spices grown in our garden. Guests will be invited to follow the Babylonstoren spice trail and get first-hand info on growing your own turmeric and ginger from our tunnel-growing master, Elzé Bresler. Spices like these are best harvested in winter when the plants are dormant, and their superpowers are preserved in the roots.

The class culminates in a hands-on foodie experience where we’ll use various spices to create a proudly South African classic. The day concludes with a hearty, belly-warming meal inside the exotic Spice House.

Steaming coffee from the Lekker Room is served upon arrival.
Lunch at the Spice House is included.
