Cook-up with Kamamma


“To visit the Kamamma’s is a unique and unforgettable experience. Their warmth and the way they invite you into their homes is amazing. They show you how to make traditional dishes, but the best experience is to share dinner and talk about life. You will feel so welcome and enriched after your visit. I can really recommend you to go!”
Ilse-Marie Sobering, Managing Partner bij VivaLaVida Lifestyle.

A Dreamcatcher Cook-up with Kamamma is a heart-warming, authentically local food experience taking place in the welcoming surrounds, at the registered Cook-up with Kamamma Home Kitchen (or outdoors). Cook-up with Kamammas can be found in communities on most or close to the main travel routes of South Africa. It is also a legally registered brand, which has been developed with Kamammas (Matriarchs) over a period of 30 years in communities across South Africa.

Whoever books Dreamcatcher Cook-up with a Kamamma will not find the glamour of a four or five star restaurant. If Michelin stars consider the size and amenities in the kitchen, your Cook-up with Kamamma will get none! A Dreamcatcher Kamamma learned to develop skills to cook her favourite recipes with very few amenities at her disposal. Armed with one pot and one burner or over an open fire, some Dreamcatcher Kamamma’s sustained and fed “freedom fighters” with their comfort food.

Your kitchen or dining table is not laid in state-of-the-art-cutlery and crockery, but the humbling, yet proudly offered home from home fare. Your usual tourist meal is turned into 10 star experience with fun and laughter part of the menu.
