A tasty grilled calamari, rocket and crisp chorizo salad with peppadews, chorizo oil and coriander yoghurt dressing also forms part of this not-to-missed master class.
A special fresh flower arranging demo will be on offer in the historic Manor House. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to master the art of creating that perfect look! An entry fee of R50 per person will be charged, and booking is essential as space is limited.

Booking is essential as the session, which starts at 08h45, is limited to 30 people.
As an added extra all women attending the market on this day will receive a complimentary glass of bubbly to enjoy.
