One of my favourite foods - bobotie from the Cape Malay kitchen in South Africa.  I had it in Cape Town - one of the great cities in the world with lots of great restaurants, a stunning setting and lots of activities.

Would love to be back in Provence again, shop for some cheese, baguette and wine in the market, then hike to a nice picnic spot and have a lazy lunch. tomg@adventurecenter.com
