Land of milk and honey
No doubt because it was founded in 1652 as a way station providing fresh produce to the ships of the Dutch East India Company, the Mother City easily conjures up memories of farmland and detours to the countryside. Perched on the eastern slope of Table Mountain, a former farm and brewery houses artists’ studios in the stables, a cottage deli, high-end boutiques, an art gallery and a prodigious nursery garden. And you can even leave with a sketchbook by William Kentridge, a sculpture in eucalyptus wood, some attractively creased ceramics, and your taste buds sated by the organic delights served at the tables beneath the camphor trees.
