“40 years ago Margaret Gibb began the dairy, piggery and organic vegetable gardens to provide healthy fresh food for the weary safari traveller,” said Kuntal. “Celebrating this legacy we now make cheeses, fruit spreads, and a cooking stye that accentuates freshness and simplicity. We have found these themes of great interest among our visitors.”

Recently the cuisine quality and traditions of Gibb’s Farm were recongized by Good Safari Guide.  The African Gourmet experience is an ideal way to learn our kitchen and organic traditions.

Reflection and Discussion
At the Forest Dinner we entered the gathering, I was offered a plate filled with tasty finger-sized bones of a stringy, yet delectable goat meat which was being sliced from a carcass grilled on a spit over an open fire. My wife, who feigns vegetarianism at moments like these, enjoyed corn on the cob also cooked in the open flames. We accompanied the appetisers with some great-tasting South African wines, while speaking with Gibb's Farm educated staff with whom we mingled during the social hour including their head chef, traditional healer, and artist-in-residence...

As dusk came we settled into a candlelit sit down dinner including a delicious rice curry, an amazing eggplant stew, fresh veggies, and chicken and sliced beef. And I had been worried when I booked the Safari about what I would find to eat in the wild!

Thank you so much for a very special day of our culinary journey, now being able to use recipes for our families in the future.  Being able to see the entire process of coffee  from tree to table will long be a vision in my memory and taste buds in my mouth... How Delicious !  What a fantastic experience.
To your health,   Corinne.    December 13, 2009
