The Karoo Heartland has a very rich food heritage and one way visitors experience the Eastern Cape Karoo is through meals shared with friends and family, generations-old recipes and the short distance our food travels from field to fork. The Karoo Heartland is thrilled to be hosting a group of Dutch food writers this week as they eat and drink their way through our beautiful region, accompanied by representatives from East Cape Parks & Tourism and the Karoo Heartland, and photographer & blogger My Karoo Life.
Our guests are from “De Telegraaf”, the largest daily newspaper in the Netherlands, “Oog voor Afrika“, a seasonal glossy travel magazine and “Foodies Magazine Netherlands“, a monthly glossy magazine for foodies. We cannot wait to show them our beautiful region, as they do the “Karoo Crawl” road trip visiting towns in the Karoo Heartland, Eastern Cape.
Tney will be visiting the towns of Somerset East, Bedford, Cradock, Nieu-Bethesda and Graaff Reinet as they sip and savour their way through our Karoo food culture. Follow their foodie journey with us on the hashtag #KarooHeartland
