Holiday Cooking - Made Easy

Holiday Cooking - Made Easy

Published by Melanie Mohamed on 3rd Dec 2021


It’s December! That means the start of the festive season. Many of us are looking forward to a break from our everyday routines. A chance to take a well-needed hiatus from school runs, early mornings and preparation of family meals. This is especially true, after the topsy-turvy of the past nineteen months.

It is against this backdrop, that we are particularly eager to welcome the influx of (more) local tourists to our beautiful part of the world this December. This holiday period, we have decided to change things up by offering a food delivery service to visitors “migrating” to Cape Town for their yearly break.

This service will allow us to alleviate the tedious burden of food preparation, especially while on holiday. We have created a pre-determined selection of weekly menus of home cooked, gluten free meals. In addition, you can top up with our certified gluten-free breads, pies, lasagne, quiches, vegan cheeses, gluten-free salamis, pantry essentials and even pre-prepared picnic baskets to list just some of the delectable goodies we have in stock. Specifically designed for those with gluten-intolerance, convenience doesn’t mean compromising.

How to order

To take advantage of the ease of our new delivery service, email us on with your  meal plan selection and any additional bread or pantry items and we’ll make sure that it’s delivered to your home or  holiday home. This service makes it that much simpler for customers staying at self-catering accommodation for the duration of the holidays.

Coffee date on us

If out-of-towners would like to pay us a visit, our on-site restaurant is a great place to enjoy our daily light lunches. Given our commitment to providing the best in fresh, we try to change our menu daily however, our in-house favourites include mouth-watering quiches, salads, smoothies, freshly baked bagels and baguettes.

Coupled with the Holiday Pantry, as a gesture of solidarity and simple kindness we would like to offer all visitors to the Fairest Cape a freshly-brewed cup of coffee and tasty treat– on the house. If you would like to meet the team, and grab a free coffee at the same time, we request that they contact Bronwyn directly, either via Instagram DM, Email or WhatsApp to make the necessary arrangements.

We wish everyone travelling this December, safe, healthy and happy holidays.
