The Bush Farmhouse plays hopscotch with South African flavors, cuisine and drink.

So what exactly is that? Well, like America, South Africa is a nation of immigrants. Europeans borrowed from, blended with local African cuisines, and vice versa. It’s glorious, flavorful cooking - made for lively tables, sharing and good cheer.
