Gr 7s Introduced To Cape Malay Cuisine

As part of the Term 3 curriculum, Union High School’s Grade 7s are learning about the colonisation of the Cape in the 17th and 18th centuries.

This week the learners learned about slavery and, in particular, the heritage left by the Cape Malay slave community.

To this day, we still use many Malay words and have adopted many Malay dishes as authentic South African cuisine.

As many of the learners have never tasted Bobotie or samosas, Mrs Hanli Rose-Innes thought it a good idea to introduce them to these tasty dishes.

Union extends a grateful word of thanks to Jade Palmer’s mom, Lecinda, and Alexander Anthony’s mom, Natalie, for preparing the Bobotie and yellow rice and samosas for the learners.
