A home dining experience with a Rock Star Chef in her home in Noordhoek (Cape Town)

We pride ourselves on our amazing customer service and creating custom itineraries for all of our clients. We love finding unique adventures and experiences for our clients, and one of our favorites for some of our clients who are traveling in South Africa is a culinary experience at Crofters Kitchen.

For many years, Chef Nicky Gibbs traveled the world learning skills and techniques inspired by ingredients in her own garden and the local surroundings. Her journey has seen her as the executive chef for top hotels and restaurants, as well as the private Chef to famous bands such as the Rolling Stones and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

She now opens her home and kitchen on the Cape Peninsula to her guests to bring you a completely unique and intimate dining experience. Each course of the meal is curated consciously using seasonal vegetables and herbs, mostly grown in her garden, while sourcing everything else from local farmers. The lunch starts with a home made kombucha and a snack while enjoying the view over Noordhoek. Once you are seated the 5 course journey starts. Each course is plated in front of you and introduced by Nicky.

Nicky brings her quirky personality to the table, serving up delectable dishes as she explains in detail what you’re about to eat, and pairs each course with a delightfully intriguing brew of homemade tea. A truly intimate and unique experience as it weaves global cooking techniques with local fresh ingredients and stories told of adventures gone by. If you are looking for true South African hospitality, local culture and food, and a unique experience, this is a must do when visiting South Africa.
